    Dallas receiver Brice Butler is active for the first time in eight games against the New York Jets on Saturday night after battling a hamstring issue for several weeks before he was the odd man out for three games.

    Butler's first catch for the Cowboys was a 67-yarder against New Orleans in Week 4 after the Cowboys traded for him while Dez Bryant was out with a broken foot. Butler first injured his hamstring against the Saints.

    With Butler in, Devin Street is inactive for the first time this season.

    As expected, Dallas linebacker Rolando McClain (concussion) and Morris Claiborne (hamstring) are out.

    Jets linebacker Taiwan Jones is inactive after he was added to the roster Friday when receiver Devin Smith (knee) was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
