Posted October 14, 2012 on AP on Fox
New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller and rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill are active for the team's game against Indianapolis after missing a few weeks with hamstring injuries. Keller hasn't played since the season opener. Center Nick Mangold is also playing Sunday after he was questionable with a sprained ankle suffered Monday night against Houston. Jets fullback John Conner and nose tackle Sione Po'uha are among the inactives. As expected, the Colts are without sacks leader Robert Mathis and running back Donald Brown, who didn't make the trip to New York with injuries. Jerry Hughes will replace Mathis in the starting lineup, and rookie Vick Ballard will make his first NFL start in place of Brown. Cornerback Vontae Davis (ankle) is active, but not starting.
