Duckett likely out

The Jets defense could get a huge break this week.

Falcons tailback T.J. Duckett, who has a sprained ankle, won't likely play against the Jets on Monday.

"Duckett probably won't be out there," Falcons quarterback Micheal Vick told Jets Confidential. "Not a good chance of seeing him out there."

The 250-pound Duckett is the type of big back that can give the Jets undersized front seven some trouble. The Falcons are platooning him with Warrick Dunn, and they form one of the NFL's premier tailback tandems.
