McKnight is questionable with a sprained left ankle suffered in last week's win over Indianapolis. He did not practice Friday, but told reporters Thursday: "I'm playing. For first place, I'm in there."

Cornerback Antonio Cromartie will return kickoffs if McKnight can't play.

Center Nick Mangold (right ankle) is also listed as questionable, as is wide receiver Clyde Gates (left shoulder), but Mangold is expected to play.

Nose tackles Sione Po'uha (back) and Kenrick Ellis (left knee), running back Bilal Powell (separated right shoulder) and safety Eric Smith (knee) are all doubtful and will likely not play.
