Antonio Cromartie active for Jets, Kelvin Beachum starts at left tackle for Steelers

The Jets defense has its top cornerback in the lineup on Sunday as Antonio Cromartie got the green light to play after a knee injury in practice this week.

Things looked good for Cromartie once he was diagnosed with a hyperextended knee following an MRI, but he missed practice on Friday and the Jets held off on making a call on his status until after pregame warmups. With Dee Milliner still out of the lineup with a hamstring injury, Cromartie will be joined by Darrin Walls and Kyle Wilson at cornerback.

Cromartie will be part of a unit trying to stop the Steelers from picking up their first victory of the season. That effort will come with a new left tackle as Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Kelvin Beachum takes over for the inactive Mike Adams. Levi Jones, acquired in a trade with the Cardinals recently, is active but, for now, Beachum is the starter.
