Jets DLs DeVito, Ellis sit out practice, uncertain for Bills game

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets defensive linemen Mike DeVito and Kenrick Ellis did not practice Wednesday, and their availability for the team's game at Buffalo on Sunday is uncertain.

DeVito, a starter at defensive end, missed the Jets' last game before the bye-week break against San Diego with a knee injury. Coach Rex Ryan said on Monday he'd be "shocked" if DeVito didn't play against the Bills, but said Wednesday that the team will know more Thursday if he can practice and isn't experiencing soreness.

Ellis, a rookie defensive tackle, appears less likely to play. He injured his left ankle in the 27-21 win over San Diego.

Linebackers Calvin Pace (groin) and David Harris (ankle), center Nick Mangold (ankle) and defensive back Isaiah Trufant (hamstring) were limited but expected to play.
