Laveranues Coles' streak of 107 straight games and 104 straight starts will come to an end today. Not unexpected since he did not practice this week with a concussion and considering the Jets elevated Chris Davis from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday afternoon. Davis, by the way, is dressed for the game.

Here are the other inactives for the Jets besides Coles: Marques Tuiasosopo (3rd QB), Drew Coleman, Darian "I Wanna Be a Ninja" Barnes, Adrian Jones (who missed practices this week, reportedly to attend to the death of his father), Jason Pociask (who has yet to be activated this season), Sean Ryan and C.J. Mosley.

If the Jets make a change at LG, it will be wither Jacob Bender or Will Montgomery. THey don't announce those things, so we'll see at around 1 p.m. Also, Mike DeVito, who had his shoulder nearly taken off by Barnes in practice this week, is activated for the second straight week.

Coles is also on the field, but the word is that LC will not be active due to the concussion he suffered in the fourth quarter against Buffalo. The news is expected after Coles didn't participate in any of the three practices during the week, yet momentous nonetheless, because his impressive starting and appearance streaks will come to an end today.

He had started in 104 consecutive games beginning in 2001 and played in 107 straight dating to his Jets rookie season of 2000. Those streaks include his two-season Washington interlude in '04-05 and they don't include the postseason. Throw in his four playoff starts for the Jets in '01, '02 and '06 and the streaks are 108 starts and 111 appearances in a row.

No matter how you slice it, his streaks are the longest among current NFL wideouts. Once he is declared inactive, both streaks will be history.

However, Coles' pass-catching streaks will continue because one must play in a game without a catch to end such streaks. He's caught at least one pass in 54 straight regular-season games for the Jets and in 58 straight NFL RS games. Great streaks all.

The Jets inactives have just been announced. Besides Coles, they include FB Darian Barnes, CB Drew Coleman, OL Adrian Jones, TEs Sean Ryan and Jason Pociask and DL C.J. Mosley, plus third QB Tuiasosopo.

WR Chris Davis, just signed off the practice squad Saturday, is wearing No. 19 and he is active. Might he run under a long Clemens heave or two today? Might he turn on the speed off the edge to harass K Shaun Suisham? We'll see.

We'll also see if and how OLs Jacob Bender and Will Montgomery will be used. Bender, the sixth-round rookie, was active for the first time last week. Montgomery, the second-year man, has been inactive every week since joining the Jets before Week 3. Both are up for this game.

Washington's IAs are former Jets G Randy Thomas, CB David Macklin, LB Marcus Washington, OL Mike Pucillo, DT Ryan Boschetti, and OL Kevin Sampson, with veteran Mark Brunell as the third QB. (Todd Collins is backing up starter Jason Campbell.)
