New, comments
William Hauser-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets have three high end defensive linemen in Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson, and Leonard Williams. The trio of 300 pounders almost never came off the field in the loss to Seattle on Sunday. Wilkerson and Richardson both saw 97% of the snaps while Williams was in for 93%.

In other notable developments, rookie Juston Burris played 18 snaps in place of an injured Darrelle Revis.

With Erin Henderson back in the mix, rookie linebacker Darron Lee saw his snap total go down. Lee played the full game against Kansas City with Henderson hurt. Against Seattle, however, Lee's total was cut to 34, which is 57% of the plays. Henderson was in the game for the other 26.

Rookie linebacker Jordan Jenkins was in the game for 21 snaps, just over one-third of the plays on defense. Deon Simon played on 17 downs.
