Safety Eric Smith will not play, but tight end Dustin Keller is expected to go after missing time with a hamstring injury. Ryan said Keller is "ready to roll" after hurting his right leg in the Jets' preseason game against Carolina on Aug. 26.

Ryan said Po'uha, sidelined since training camp with a sore back, is "close" and has been "begging us to play." The team said Ryan misspoke on Po'uha's status because he hadn't read the final injury report.

Smith sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and hurt his hip in the preseason opener at Cincinnati.
