Colts’ Hayden, Session, Diem ruled out vs. Jets

UPDATE: Kickoff of the Jets-Colts wild-card matchup has been moved back 15 minutes to 8:15 p.m. ET.

Colts CB Kelvin Hayden is inactive for Saturday’s wild-card game against the New York Jets after being placed on injured reserve because of a neck injury.

As reported earlier Saturday by NFL Network reporter Albert Breer, the Colts made outside linebacker Clint Session (elbow)  inactive. The Colts also ruled out starting right tackle Ryan Diem (back).

Notable Jets inactives include defensive end Vernon Gholston, who played all 16 regular-season games, and running back Joe McKnight, who rushed for 158 yards in the Jets’ Week 17 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

Right Tackle Damien Woody returns to the Jets lineup after missing the past three weeks with a knee injury.

Breer reports that the Jets will start Dwight Lowery over Eric Smith at safety, alongside Brodney Pool.
