Jets' Richardson (Hamstring) Questionable; Fitzpatrick Fine

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will start against Houston on Sunday and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson is questionable because of a hamstring injury.

Richardson didn't practice this week, and coach Todd Bowles says Friday he will be a game-time decision. Richardson has 19 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble in five games after being suspended the first four for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Fitzpatrick, set to face his former team, had no setbacks after surgery on his left thumb last week.

Safety Dion Bailey didn't practice this week and will miss his second straight game with a high ankle sprain.

Cornerback Buster Skrine is questionable after being limited at practice Friday with shoulder and hand injuries.
