As expected, Jeff Cumberland is inactive for today's game against the Saints.

The tight end was listed as questionable on the injury report after suffering a concussion in last week's loss in Cincinnati. The Jets -- who still are without tight end Kellen Winslow (suspension) -- will start Konrad Reuland in Cumberland's place.

The good news, however, is that right guard Willie Colon will play. He also was questionable after not practicing all week.

Hofstra's own Marques Colston, a former college teammate of Colon's, is inactive for the Saints, as is safety Roman Harper. However, New Orleans will welcome back Jonathan Vilma, who will make his season debut after being placed on short-term IR.

Full list of Jets inactives: QB David Garrard, WR Santonio Holmes, RB Alex Green, OL Will Campbell, OL Ben Ijalana, OL Oday Aboushi and TE Jeff Cumberland.

(As expected, Jeremy Kerley will start in place of Holmes.)

Full list of Saints inactives: QB Ryan Griffin, WR Marques Colston, S Malcolm Jenkins, RB Khiry Robinson, S Roman Harper, OL Terron Armstead, DE Tyrunn Walker.
