The NY Jets have released their list of inactives ahead of their Week 17 meeting with the Seattle Seahawks and offensive guard Nate Herbig is out.

Herbig was added to the injury report on Friday with an ankle injury and was listed as questionable for this week's game. The Jets tested Herbig out in pre-game warmups before deciding that he wasn't healthy enough to play.

With Herbig out, the Jets' interior offensive line depth will be razor-thin. Either Laurent Duvernay-Tardif or Dan Feeney will start in Herbig's place leaving the team with just one backup interior lineman.

Defensive end Vinny Curry is also inactive after popping up on the injury report on Friday with an elbow injury. The Jets will be down to nine defensive linemen with Curry sidelined, allowing players like Jermaine Johnson, Micheal Clemons, and Vinny Curry to receive more snaps.

Cornerback Brandin Echols is also set to miss his third consecutive game with a quad injury. Bryce Hall will take his place as the dime cornerback and on special teams.

Zach Wilson is inactive again for the NY Jets

The remaining three inactive players are all healthy scratches. Quarterback Zach Wilson is back on the inactives list following his disastrous performance a week ago. Don't expect to see Wilson active again this season, barring injury.

The Jets will have three active quarterbacks with Joe Flacco and Chris Streveler both backing up Mike White. Streveler was elevated from the practice squad for the second consecutive week.

Running back James Robinson is a healthy scratch again as the Jets will roll with Zonovan Knight, Michael Carter, and Ty Johnson. Rookie tight end Jeremy Ruckert is inactive again as well leaving Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah, and Kenny Yeboah as the three healthy tight ends.

The Jets take on the Seahawks with kickoff set for 4:05 pm.
