The Jets (3-3) take on the Dolphins (3-2) on Sunday in Miami at 1 p.m. Here's what's going on today:

Need to know

The Jets are preparing for the trip to Miami, so there will be no media access at Florham Park on Friday. The entire term, apart from Muhammad Wilkerson, practiced without limitation yesterday, so they are in good shape for the road trip.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano will preview the game and send his three keys. Follow @RVaccianoSNY on Twitter to keep up with all the happenings.

While much of the attention from the Jets' loss to the Patriots will be focused on the controversial overturned touchdown in the fourth quarter, the Jets only have themselves to blame for giving up 24 unanswered points and letting New England back into the game.

Nevertheless, they gave a good account of themselves and, despite some glaring weaknesses, continued to prove that they're a more talented group than most people gave them credit for before the season...

Jets CB Darryl Roberts (hamstring), DE Kony Ealy (shoulder), RB Matt Forte (toe), and LB Josh Martin (ankle) all missed practice on Thursday.

Ealy, who earned the game ball after the team's Week 4 victory, recorded one tackle, four passes defended and an interception against Blake Bortles during the third quarter. However, he injured the shoulder during the game, which has forced him out of practice the last two days.

Forte, who missed last week's game, will almost certainly not play on Sunday against the Browns if he doesn't practice on Friday, head coach Todd Bowles said.

Jets RB Matt Forte (toe) is out and DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars at MetLife Stadium.

TE Jordan Leggett (knee) is also out, while RT Brandon Shell (shoulder), and LB Josh Martin are doubtful.

Wilkerson, who played Week 3 despite a Grade 1 strain in his AC joint, had tests on his shoulder that revealed no structural damage. However, he may need to deal with the injury all season, head coach Todd Bowles said earlier this week.

TE Jordan Leggett (knee), RT Brandon Shell (shoulder), RB Matt Forte (toe), and LB Josh Martin (ankle) also missed practice.

After he was waived by the New York Giants over the weekend, tight end Will Tye is excited to be a member of the Jets after they signed him on Sunday.

"I'm happy to be anywhere, just being able to contribute, because I know I can help," Tye said, according to Newsday's Bob Glauber. "I know I belong in this league. That's a huge plus for me, to be somewhere fast. It feels good to be wanted, to be somewhere you know you can help and contribute. I'm ready to be on the field, ready to play, that's for sure."

Despite having 90 catches for 859 yards and four touchdowns in 29 games over the past two seasons, Tye was cut by the Giants in favor of Rhett Ellison, Evan Engram, Matt LaCosse and Jerell Adams.
