Jets CBs Sheppard and Strickland Out

The Jets defense has taken a major hit for their upcoming weekend match-up against the Titans. Both Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland will be out with separate injuries.

From NFL.com:

Jets CBs Lito Sheppard (quadricep) and Donald Strickland (ankle) have been ruled out of Sunday’s matchup with the Titans. Both suffered injuries against the Patriots last week.

Sheppard has started the first two games for the Jets, and Strickland has been his primary backup and the team’s nickel corner. With both defensive backs unavailable vs. the Titans, Jets coach Rex Ryan said second-year CB Dwight Lowery will start opposite Darrelle Revis, and Drew Coleman will be the team’s nickel back.

Sheppard has five tackles and a pick on the season for a resurgent Jets team that has only allowed 10 points through two games.
