FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets wide receiver Jerricho Cotchery will not play against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, missing his second straight game with an injured left hamstring.
Coach Rex Ryan said Friday that wide receiver Brad Smith and cornerback Lito Sheppard, both nursing quadriceps injuries, also will not play.
Ryan said he thought Cotchery had a chance to play this weekend, but doesn't want it to turn into a situation where the receiver is dealing with it every week. He added that he thinks Cotchery will have a good shot at playing next week at home against Miami.
Cornerback Donald Strickland (ankle) and right tackle Damien Woody (foot/knee) will be listed as questionable, but are expected to play.
