Quinn was inactive for Thursday night's game against the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. He has been with the Jets for two weeks, save for his 48-hour period in free-agent limbo last weekend, but the Jets evidently feel more comfortable with Simms as the No. 2 (for now) even though he has no NFL experience.
For the Patriots, the news (if you can call it that) is that wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) is inactive. That was expected, as he was listed as doubtful. Their other inactives are running back Brandon Bolden, tight end Zach Sudfeld, linebacker Steve Beauharnais, guard Will Svitek, tight end Rob Gronkowski and defensive tackle Chris Jones.
