Mike DeVito, Kenrick Ellis sit out

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets defensive linemen Mike DeVito and Kenrick Ellis did not practice Wednesday, and their availability for the team's game at Buffalo on Sunday is uncertain.

DeVito and Ellis did some light individual work with trainers at the start of practice, but they retired to the weight room when the team broke up into positional drills. This seemingly doesn't bode well for DeVito, but he's expected to play Sunday against the Bills, coach Rex Ryan said Monday.

DeVito, a starter at defensive end, missed the Jets' last game before the bye-week break against San Diego with a knee injury. Ryan said Wednesday that the team will know more Thursday if he can practice and isn't experiencing soreness.

Ellis, a rookie defensive tackle, appears less likely to play. He injured his left ankle in the 27-21 win over San Diego.

Linebackers Calvin Pace (groin) and David Harris (ankle), center Nick Mangold (ankle) and defensive back Isaiah Trufant (hamstring) were limited but expected to play.
