Finnegan, Clay, Garner doubtful for Jets

Cornerback Cortland Finnegan is doubtful for the Monday night meeting between the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. He is likely to miss his third consecutive game with an ankle injury.

Tight end Charles Clay is likely to miss his second consecutive game because he, too, is doubtful. He has a hamstring and knee injury but it is the hamstring that is keeping him from practicing the final two days of the prep week.

Nate Garner, dealing with an unknown illness, is also doubtful. Obviously as a backup, he is easier to replace.

Speaking of replacing, as Jamar Taylor is also out with a shoulder surgery, the Dolphins have been preparing to use Jimmy Wilson at right cornerback, as I told you Friday afternoon.

Left tackle Ja'Wuan James is listed as questionable with a neck injury but he will start for the Dolphins.

The Jets will be without tight end Jace Amaro (concussion) and defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson, who is nursing a toe injury.
