Winslow, Nelson active for Jets
By Rich Cimini
ATLANTA -- Tight end Kellen Winslow, who listed as questionable after missing significant practice time due to a chronic knee condition, is active for the New York Jets Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons.
Recently signed wide receiver David Nelson, who did not arrive until last week, also is active. Without Santonio Holmes (hamstring), the Jets' receiving corps is Stephen Hill, Jeremy Kerley, Clyde Gates, Nelson and Michael Campbell, who was promoted last Saturday from the practice squad. Gates, too, was questionable with a knee injury.
Rookie wide receiver Ryan Spadola, who was cut last Saturday amid a flurry of roster moves, cleared waivers at 4 p.m. ET Monday, according to a league source. He's a free agent and could wind up returning to the Jets.
Aside from Holmes, the Jets' inactives are QB Brady Quinn, CB Dee Milliner, G Will Campbell, OT Oday Aboushi, OT Ben Ijalana and TE Zach Sudfeld.
For the Falcons, the news is that CB Asante Samuel is active after missing time with a thigh injury. The Falcons' inactives are RB Steven Jackson, LB Akeem Dent, LT Sam Baker, S Kemal Ishmael, S Zeke Motta, G Harland Gunn and TE Chase Coffman.
