Jenkins, Givens back for Rams; McKnight, Powell active for Jets

Two St. Louis Rams rookies, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Chris Givens, are active against the New York Jets after getting benched last week.

Fullback Brit Miller, also the team's special teams captain, and wide receiver Steve Smith were inactive. Wide receiver Austin Pettis, who missed two days of practice and was limited Friday with a toe injury, was active on Sunday.

Jenkins and Givens were suspended last week for violating team rules. Coach Jeff Fisher said during the week that both players would be back but did not say whether either would start.

Jets running backs Joe McKnight (ankle) and Bilal Powell (concussion) were active after being listed as questionable. Linebacker Bart Scott (toe) and defensive tackle Sione Pouha (low back/ankle) also dressed after being questionable and limited in practice all week.
