EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Buffalo Bills newly acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin will not play against the New York Jets.

Jets starting cornerback Morris Claiborne is out with a foot injury suffered Sunday against Atlanta.
Cornerback Rashard Robinson, acquired from San Francisco on Tuesday, is active for New York. Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, foot) will also play after being questionable.
Other Jets inactives are: right tackle Brandon Shell, quarterback Christian Hackenberg, safety Terrence Brooks, cornerback Derrick Jones, fullback Lawrence Thomas and linebacker Obum Gwacham.
