FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets cornerbacks Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland are out for the team's game against Tennessee.
Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez was listed as probable Friday, as expected, and will play Sunday despite some tendinitis in his right knee. He appeared to be fine at practice and was a full participant.
Neither Sheppard (right quadriceps) nor Strickland (right ankle) practiced this week.
Sheppard will be replaced in the starting lineup by Dwight Lowery, who struggled last season as a rookie. He broke up Tom Brady's final pass Sunday to Joey Galloway to seal New York's 16-9 win over New England.
Drew Coleman will likely step in for Strickland in nickel packages.
