EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- As expected, the Jets are without three offensive starters Monday night, all of whom are battling hamstring injuries -- tight end Dustin Keller, wide receiver Stephen Hill and fullback John Conner.

They were among the Jets' seven inactives. The others are nose tackle Sione Pouha (back), cornerback Darrelle Revis (knee), guard Caleb Schlauderaff and quarterback Greg McElroy.

On offense, the Jets started Chaz Schilens and Jeff Cumberland for Hill and Keller, respectively. The fullback position probably will be shared, with TE Konrad Reuland and newcomer Lex Hilliard getting snaps there.

Kenrick Ellis started for Pouha, a big dropoff.
