Jets' Elijah Riley: Officially out Sunday
Riley (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Riley had to be stretchered out of last week's loss to the Dolphins, so the fact that he was ever in consideration to play this Sunday is a positive.
