Flacco to start for Jets in finale vs Dolphins, White out

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Joe Flacco will start at quarterback for the New York Jets on Sunday, with Mike White ruled out against the Miami Dolphins because of a rib injury. Zach Wilson will serve as Flacco’s backup. It’s the latest twist in a season filled with them at quarterback for the Jets. White returned last Sunday after missing two games with five broken ribs, but was mostly ineffective in New York’s 23-6 loss at Seattle. He finished 23 of 46 with no touchdowns and two interceptions, clearly still affected by his ribs. White was estimated as a full participant at Wednesday’s walkthrough practice. But he was limited at practice Thursday.
