Vollmer a surprise inactive

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer is a surprise scratch for tonight's game against the Jets.

Vollmer has been questionable on the injury report all season with a back injury. On Oct. 10, the team added a knee injury to his designation on the participation report.

Vollmer has played in all 10 games this season up to this point. In his absence, second-year man Marcus Cannon should start.
