FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes will miss his fifth straight game with a hamstring injury.

Coach Rex Ryan says Friday that Holmes has been ruled out for the game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Holmes, who did not practice, was injured in the Jets' loss at Tennessee in Week 4.

Tight end Jeff Cumberland is questionable with a concussion after he was injured last Sunday at Cincinnati. Cumberland was limited Friday and was in a red non-contact jersey. He might be a game-time decision.

Right guard Willie Colon (calf), center Nick Mangold (ribs) and backup running back Alex Green (hamstring) were all listed as questionable. Mangold is expected to play, and so is Colon - although Vladimir Ducasse would fill in if he can't go.
