Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore (concussion) and running back Rex Burkhead (ribs) have been ruled out for the game Sunday against the Jets in East Rutherford, N.J.
Gilmore had been listed with an ankle injury earlier in the week but wasn't on the injury report Friday. He had been a limited participant in practice. It's unclear when the concussion occurred.
It leaves the Pats thin at corner with cornerback Eric Rowe already out with a groin injury.

Burkhead had been listed as questionable but will miss the game with a rib injury. Rookie linebacker Harvey Langi, who was injured along with his wife in a car accident Friday night in Foxboro, was also downgraded to out with a back injury.
