EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Pregame buzz:
Jets receiver Laveranues Coles (hamstring, concussion) will start against visiting Kansas City.
Jets tight end Bubba Franks is inactive because of a groin injury.
Chiefs' running back Larry Johnson is inactive today against the Jets. It's the second straight game he has been deactivated. Chiefs coach Herman Edwards is punishing him for off-field issues.
After heavy rains Saturday, it is clear skies in the East Rutherford area and weather should not be an issue for the Jets-Chiefs game.
The Chiefs' plane was delayed a couple of hours Saturday flying into the New Jersey area because of inclement weather.
Several members of the Jets' Super Bowl III team, including quarterback Joe Namath, were in the press box prior to the game.
Former Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer is here. His son Brian is an assistant for the Jets.
Interesting development in Baltimore where Oakland running back Darren McFadden has been deactivated because of turf toe. He has been dealing with the injury since Week 2 at Kansas City. Coincidentally, that was his best game. Turf toe can bother a player for an entire season and perhaps this is going to be the case for the No. 4 overall pick of the 2008 draft.
Receiver Chad Jackson is still on target to sign with Denver tonight. He has a flight scheduled to land in Denver on Sunday evening.
