FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -New York Jets linebacker David Harris and safety Eric Smith will each miss their fourth straight game after they were ruled out Friday for the team's matchup at undefeated Tennessee because of injuries.
Harris reportedly had surgery on his groin earlier this month after he was injured in the second quarter of the Jets' 28-24 victory over Kansas City on Oct. 26. Harris, who led the team with 52 tackles at the time he was injured, hasn't practiced the last several weeks and could miss another week.
Like Harris, Smith hasn't played or practiced since suffering his third head injury in a four-game span.
Smith, seen Friday in the locker room, was initially injured on his helmet-to-helmet hit on Arizona's Anquan Boldin in Week 4 that earned him a one-game suspension and fine. Smith suffered another concussion three weeks later in the Jets' 16-13 overtime loss at Oakland. He left the team's game at Buffalo two weeks later after taking a glancing blow to his head.
Raiders, was listed as questionable, as was linebacker Jason Trusnik (knee).
Kicker Mike Nugent was listed as probable after being sidelined since injuring his right thigh in the season opener at Miami, but likely will again give way to Jay Feely at Tennessee. Feely is 18-of-22 on field-goal attempts since replacing Nugent, including a game-winning 34-yarder in overtime against New England last Thursday.
