without their No. 1 cornerback.Trumaine Johnson was ruled out for Sunday's game because of a strained quadriceps. He was hurt during practice Thursday and sat out Friday."He'll be out this week Youth Bradley Roby Jersey ," coach Todd Bowles said. "So we're just going to monitor it after that and see how he's feeling."Bowles would not give any details but did not think it was a season-ending injury."Not at this time, no it's not," Bowles said.Johnson was the Jets' top free-agent signing in March, giving him a five-year, $72.5 million deal. He has had a mostly inconsistent first four games with New York after spending his first six seasons with the Rams."Any time you lose a starter, it's a big deal, but we have guys that have played over the past couple of years," Bowles said.Morris Claiborne will likely move into Johnson's spot, with Bowles using a mix of Buster Skrine, Darryl Roberts, Juston Burris and rookie Parry Nickerson on the other side against the likes of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders."We'll toy around a little bit and reveal it on Sunday," Bowles said.Skrine is the Jets' primary nickel corner and his strength is playing inside in the slot, although he has plenty of experience playing on the outside. So does Roberts, who started four games last season and two in 2016."Coach is always preaching that it's the next man up," said Roberts, who has an interception this season. "So, if I do get to go on Sunday http://www.authenticsdenverbroncos.com/cheap-phillip-lindsay-jersey , then I'll be ready for my opportunity to play."Roberts was a full participant at practice after being limited by a hamstring issue at practice Thursday."He's tough, he's a good tackler," Bowles said. "We know he's a good corner, he plays man, he plays zone well and he competes, so you like that about him."Burris was a fourth-round pick of the Jets in 2016 but has been inactive the last three games. Nickerson, a sixth-rounder this year, has played as a backup in all four games.Cornerback Rashard Robinson returned this week from a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but Bowles said Robinson won't be added to the active roster before the game. The Jets have an exemption for Robinson, meaning he can continue to practice with the team, but New York has until Monday to add him to the active roster or release him.In other injuries, also ruled out by the Jets were wide receiver Charone Peake (hamstring) and tight end Neal Sterling (concussion).Safety Marcus Maye, who made his season debut last week at Jacksonville, is questionable after being limited in practice all week with ankle and foot ailments.Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa was a full participant after being limited Thursday with a hip issue. Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone has seen enough in five games of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to compare him to some of the best to ever play the position.Or more accurately, an amalgamation of the best to ever play it.Think the arm strength of Brett Favre and the accuracy of Tom Brady. The poise of Aaron Rodgers, the gritty gamesmanship of Ben Roethlisberger and the intelligence of Peyton Manning."You are talking," Marrone said Bradley Chubb Jersey , "about someone that is a combination of a lot of the greatest players that have ever played that position with the way he is playing."Now, the question is whether the NFL's best defense can slow him down.The Jaguars (3-1) head to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to face Mahomes and the Chiefs' high-flying offense in what is arguably the game of the week . Jacksonville's only loss came by a field goal to the Titans, while the Chiefs (4-0) are coming off a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback win in Denver.And whereas the Jaguars are allowing a paltry 259 yards per game, and top the league in scoring defense, the Chiefs are putting up 410 yards and an NFL-best 36 points per game.Much of that is due to Mahomes , who is averaging close to 300 yards passing. He has already thrown 14 touchdown passes without an interception, and his ability to make plays when everything breaks down — like that audacious left-handed pass against the Broncos — has turned him into an early MVP front-runner."He gives you challenges every which way," Marrone said, "whether you put him in the pocket (or not). He can make every throw. He makes quick decisions. You get him out of the pocket and he can extend plays. He is athletic enough to run and run for a long way and take it to the house. He has great command, and he has great weapons around him and an outstanding offensive line."Right now, offensively, what you're seeing is that it's kind of unbelievable," Marrone said, "which is going to be a great challenge. We have our hands full."To the Jaguars' credit, the Chiefs are saying the same thing about them.Their defensive front is anchored by Calais Campbell and allows fewer than 100 yards rushing per game. Telvin Smith is one of the game's top linebackers. And the defensive backfield is led by cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, who have made life miserable for quarterbacks all year."This is by far the best defense we'll have faced ," Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill said Authentic Brandon McManus Jersey , "but I'm always up for a challenge. The best always go against the best, so we'll be ready."As the Jaguars prepare to visit the Chiefs, here are five dominant story lines:SIDELINED STARSThe Jaguars will be without running back Leonard Fournette , who is again sidelined by a lingering hamstring injury, and backup cornerback D.J. Hayden. The Chiefs remain without star safety Eric Berry, who has been "day to day" for about two months with a troublesome heel.WINNING STREAKSThe Chiefs have won nine straight regular-season games dating to last season, but the Jaguars have found it far more difficult to string together victories. The Jaguars never won more than three in a row last season."It's something we've struggled a bit with," Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles said. "This is the perfect opportunity to kind of break that mold of going up and down back-to-back weeks, playing good and then following it up with a poor performance."HENNE'S HELPThe Chiefs could have an advantage in backup QB Chad Henne, who started 53 games over six seasons in Jacksonville. He also appeared in two games in mop-up duty last year, and gives Kansas City the ability to diagnose and understand the Jaguars' offense.RUN AWAREThe Chiefs finally got running back Kareem Hunt going last week against Denver, and last year's NFL rushing champion responded with his first 100-yard game this season.It was a good reminder for the Jaguars that they can't focus entirely on Mahomes and the Chiefs' pass offense."You would think that, but that's not the case. I'm being honest," Marrone said. "We understand the running backs. We understand how good the line is. We obviously know the weapons on the outside. We obviously know that the field will be stretched. We're going to have to play well. It will be a challenge ."ARROWHEAD MYSTIQUEThe party-like atmosphere that was prevalent in Kansas City throughout the 1990s has returned with the success of Mahomes and Co., and Marrone is keenly aware of it."It is going to be so damn loud," he said. "We will all have to be on the same page. I don't think a lot of people will be able to hear a lot of things when you go that. That is probably one thing about Kansas City: It is probably the loudest place I have ever been."
