EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brandon Marshall is active for the Miami Dolphins against the New York Jets after missing two games with an injured right hamstring.

Marshall is in the starting lineup Sunday, but the Dolphins are without wide receiver Brian Hartline. He had surgery on an injured finger on his left hand.

Tackle Vernon Carey was also not active with a knee injury after starting 87 consecutive games. He was replaced by Lydon Murtha.

Jets right tackle Damien Woody is active after not practicing as he recovers from a sprained right medial collateral ligament, suffered against Houston on Nov. 21.

Safety James Ihedigbo is inactive after suffering a high ankle sprain and injury to the MCL in the knee Monday night at New England.
