The NY Jets have a hefty injury report heading into their final game of the season with 10 total players listed including five who have already been ruled out.

The Jets have ruled out three starting offensive linemen as the seasons of left tackle Duane Brown (shoulder), right tackle George Fant (knee), and right guard Nate Herbig (calf) are officially over.

Cedric Ogbuehi is expected to start in place of Brown, Mike Remmers in place of Fant, and Dan Feeney in place of Herbig. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is the only projected backup offensive lineman on the active roster so expect the Jets to elevate someone from the practice squad for Sunday's game.

Cornerback Brandin Echols (quad) has also been ruled out for the fourth consecutive game. In hindsight, the Jets probably should have placed Echols on the injured reserve a few weeks back as he will not play after injuring his quad in Week 14.

Safety Lamarcus Joyner is the final player listed as out. Joyner re-injured his hip in Sunday's game and his Jets career might very well be over. Expect undrafted rookie Tony Adams to start alongside Jordan Whitehead.

Quarterback Mike White is listed as questionable, although he's not expected to play. White returned from injury in Week 14 and was listed as a full participant for Wednesday's walkthrough. However, he was downgraded to a limited participant on Thursday and is not expected to suit up on Sunday.

Joe Flacco is set to start in White's place while Zach Wilson serves as the primary backup. Flacco started the first three games of the season for the Jets and could be making his final NFL appearance on Sunday.

Four other players are listed as questionable for Sunday's game, although the expectation is that all four are able to play. The aforementioned Duevrnay-Tardif is questionable with a knee injury and missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Jordan Whitehead is also questionable after he was limited in practice all week with a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, safety Ashtyn Davis (ankle) and tight end C.J. Uzomah (ankle) were added to the injury report on Friday. Both are expected to play, however.
