Safety Ed Reed to start in his Jets debut vs Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Ed Reed will start at safety in his debut with the New York Jets in Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Reed was released by the Houston Texans on Tuesday and signed with the Jets on Thursday. Santonio Holmes returns to the Jets' lineup after missing five games with a hamstring injury, while fellow wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (elbow) is inactive as expected.

The Bills will be without top wide receivers Stevie Johnson (groin) and Robert Woods (ankle), as previously announced by coach Doug Marrone.
