Health is a major factor in any playoff game. The Pats are coming into the game pretty healthy, but the Jets now have lost a major player on thier offense. Damien Woody who started at Right Tackle against the Colts in the first playoff game will be placed on IR and therefore OUT vs the Patriots.
This means the Jets will go with thier back up right tackle to protect a vunerable Mark Sanchez. Wayne Hunter will be the guy who fills in. Hunter is a 7 year veteran who has only started 5 total games in his career, 4 of them being this year.
