  • Jets' Sheldon Rankins: Ready to face former team

    Rankins (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Saints, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

    Rankins concluded the week as a full participant in practice, so he never appeared in major jeopardy of sitting out a matchup against the team that drafted him, despite being listed as questionable for the contest. The sixth-year defensive tackle logged 21 tackles and two sacks through his 11 appearances before sitting out the Jets' Week 13 loss to the Eagles.
