The Jets have officially declared starting tight end Dustin Keller and starting wide receiver Stephen Hill inactive for tonight’s game against the Titans, making the presence of the newly acquired Braylon Edwards even more important.

Jets coach Rex Ryan has said that Edwards is picking things up quickly, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Edwards may even be in the Jets’ starting lineup, depending on which formation the Jets decide to open the game in. Edwards has been with the Jets for less than a week, but that’s how desperate they are for help at receiver.

In addition to Keller and Hill, the Jets’ inactives are Greg McElroy, Aaron Berry, Bryan Thomas, Damon Harrison and Caleb Schlauderaff.

The Titans’ inactives are Rusty Smith, Colin McCarthy, Damian Williams, Scott Solomon, Xavier Adibi, Daniel Baldridge and Mitch Petrus.
