ST. LOUIS -- Two St. Louis Rams rookies, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Chris Givens, started against the New York Jets after getting benched last week.

Jenkins and Givens were suspended last week for violating team rules. Coach Jeff Fisher said during the week that both players would be back, but had not said whether either would start.

Fullback Brit Miller, also the team's special teams captain, and wide receiver Steve Smith were inactive. Wide receiver Austin Pettis, who missed two days of practice and was limited Friday with a toe injury, was active on Sunday.

Jets running backs Joe McKnight (ankle) and Bilal Powell (concussion) were active after being listed as questionable. Linebacker Bart Scott (toe) and defensive tackle Sione Pouha (low back/ankle) also dressed after being questionable and limited in practice all week.
