A couple of key guys will be missing in action for the Jets in Seattle this Sunday.

Rex Ryan announced today that both DL Kenrick Ellis and RB Joe McKnight have been ruled out, and won’t make the trip to Seattle for the game on Sunday. These will both be big losses on Sunday. We know how important McKnight is with his explosiveness out of the backfield and in the return game. Bilal Powell will be back at RB, and the kick return duties will be shared, we have heard, between Antonio Cromartie and Clyde Gates.

Kenrick Ellis will be a big loss as well, as he is a body that was important defending against the run, and we all know how the Seahawks can run the football. Sione Po’uha will play, but has been hampered by injury all season. Maybe this will be the week we finally get to see a bit more of Damon Harrison. It would certainly seem like the right time, I guess we will find out soon enough.
