FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerbacks Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland have been ruled out of Sunday's game at New Orleans.
Sheppard, who has a strained right quadriceps, and Strickland, who has a high right ankle sprain, haven't practiced or played since being injured in the Jets' Week 2 victory over the New England Patriots.
Dwight Lowery will again start in Sheppard's spot, opposite Darrelle Revis. Drew Coleman likely will see more action in Strickland's nickel role.
