David Harris’ streak remains intact.
The Jets’ veteran linebacker is active for today’s season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Harris — referred to as the “glue” and quarterback of the defense — suffered a shoulder injury against the Giants in Week 3 of the preseason. Though officially listed as questionable for today’s game, it seemed likely that he would be able to suit up.
Known for his toughness and durability, Harris hasn’t missed a game since 2008.
On Friday, he told reporters that his shoulder is still “sore and tight” but initially feared the injury was a broken collarbone.
As expected, rookie linebacker Jordan Jenkins (calf) will not play. He’ll be replaced by Long Island native Mike Catapano.
Here are the rest of the Jets inactives: QBs Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, RB Troymaine Pope, CB Darryl Roberts, OT Brandon Shell and TE Braedon Bowman.
