Over wrong ter­mi­na­tion

sys­tem take care of ev­ery­thing else.”

FORTE OUT FOR JAGS

The Jets ruled out run­ning back Matt Forte (turf toe) and tight end Jor­dan Leggett (knee) for Sun­day’s home game against the Jaguars. Leggett hasn’t prac­ticed this reg­u­lar sea­son.

Start­ing right tackle Bran­don Shell (shoul­der) is doubt­ful. Ei­ther Ben Ijalana or Brent Qvale will start in Shell’s place. Bowles said that choice will be a game-time de­ci­sion.

Out­side line­backer Josh Martin (an­kle) is also doubt­ful. De­fen­sive line­man Mo Wilk­er­son (shoul­der) was limited in prac­tice Fri­day and is ques­tion­able. Wilk­er­son has a Grade 1 AC joint sprain and didn’t prac­tice Wed­nes­day or Thurs­day.

“If he’s out there, we ex­pect him to be a full go,” Bowles said of Wilk­er­son. “It doesn’t im­pact him at all.”

De­fen­sive line­man Kony Ealy, who was ex­cused from prac­tice Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day to at­tend to a per­sonal mat­ter, re­turned Fri­day. He will play Sun­day.

AN­THEM NAR­RA­TIVE

Bowles said the Jets will meet Satur­day night to for­mu­late a plan for Sun­day’s na­tional an­them. “You can’t lose sight of the nar­ra­tive,” Bowles said of the league-wide protests and shows of unity. “If ev­ery­body has the nar­ra­tive right, then it’s a great thing. If they don’t and are do­ing it for dif­fer­ent rea­sons, then it’s not.”

GETTY

Rookie Eli­jah McGuire, who has im­pressed play­ers and coaches alike, should see in­creased role Sun­day with Matt Forte out.

Matt Forte won’t play Sun­day due to turf toe.
