- McKnight active for Patriots game
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Jets running back Joe McKnight is active for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. McKnight was questionable after suffering a high ankle sprain in last week’s win against the Colts. He will be the backup to starter Shonn Greene, as fellow back Bilal Powell (shoulder) is inactive.
Having McKnight is also important for the Jets’ special teams, as he is averaging 29.7 yards per return on kickoffs and has returned one for a touchdown.

- Jets contact NFL regarding Pats hurry-up
The Jets, concerned about their ability to substitute between plays when the Patriots shift into their up-tempo offense, actually reached out to the NFL to make sure the game officials properly enforce the substitution rules.
“We have already talked to the league office and Rex (Ryan) will be in the ref’s ear about this all game,” a member of the Jets’ coaching staff told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio Saturday night.
The Jets will emphasize the point during the pre-game meeting with the game officials, as they always do, a senior team official told Paolantonio.
- New England Patriots To Watch
1. #83 Wes Welker- Every year, every game Welker is an “Opponent to Watch.” Everyone knows Brady, Gronkowski, Lloyd are all major threats, but the guy who can potentially hurt the Jets the most is Welker. Cromartie has had a good season, but asking him to cover Welker is too steep a task. He’ll be [...]

- Sunday notes: Revis backed into corner?
Thoughts and observations on the Jets and the NFL:
1. Cromartie vs. Revis: Darrelle Revis’ leverage in future contract negotiations with the Jets could be hurt by fellow cornerback Antonio Cromartie. If Cromartie continues to play at an elite level, it could very well impact how much the Jets are willing to pay for Revis, who will be an unrestricted free agent in 2014. (They can’t use the franchise tag, per a clause in his current contract.) Let’s be clear: the Jets want to sign him to a long-term deal, assuming he recovers from knee surgery, but they may not want to give him the sun, the moon and the stars if they’re comfortable with the Cromartie-Kyle Wilson tandem.

- Tebow impersonates Brady on scout team
Whether he plays a significant role or not, Tim Tebow already has helped the Jets in their bid to upset the Patriots on Sunday.
Because of his familiarity with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Tebow simulated Tom Brady on the Jets’ scout team all week in practice. Tebow knows McDaniels from their days in Denver. McDaniels was the head coach when Tebow was drafted in the first round in 2010.
“Tebow had a good grasp playing under Josh McDaniels and being drafted by Josh, so he did a nice job at quarterback for us, I thought,” Rex Ryan said Friday.
- Po’uha, Powell, Smith declared out
Nose tackle Sione Po’uha, running back Bilal Powell, safety Eric Smith and nose tackle Kenrick Ellis — all of whom were listed as doubtful on the injury report — won’t play Sunday against the Patriots, the Jets announced Saturday.
As expected, none of the players accompanied the team on the trip to New England.
Running back Joe McKnight, listed as questionable with a high ankle sprain even though he didn’t practice all week, made the trip. He will be a game-time decision.
