Gardner failed to make an impact, despite the struggles of No. 2 wide receiver Keary Colbert and 37-year-old Ricky Proehl.
Jets. New York placed Curtis Martin on the injured-reserve list after the Pro Bowl running back underwent season-ending knee surgery.
Martin had arthroscopic surgery two days ago on his right knee, which had bothered him for most of the season. He sat out last weekend's 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders, ending a streak of 126 straight starts.
Martin finished with 735 yards this season, the first time in his 11-year career he failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark. He's the fourth-leading rusher in NFL history with 14,101 yards.
Lions. Detroit placed linebackers Boss Bailey and Earl Holmes on injured reserve.
Bailey, who has an ankle injury, missed all of 2004. He's third on the team in tackles this season with 75 in 11 games.
Holmes, who has a bad knee, started 10 games this season and was second in tackles with 83. He also forced two fumbles.
Bills. Defensive lineman Lauvale Sape was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
Sape, injured during a loss to New England last week, will be replaced by offensive tackle Dylan McFarland in today's game against the Denver Broncos.
Noteworthy. A former Carolina Panthers cheerleader pleaded not guilty to three charges after she and another cheerleader were arrested at a Tampa nightclub.
Renee Thomas, 20, and Angela Keathley, 26, were arrested Nov. 6 after an incident outside a bathroom at a bar, the night before the Panthers played at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Thomas is charged with giving a false name to a police officer, battery and unlawful display of a license. Giving a false name is a felony charge; the other two charges are misdemeanors.
A circuit court clerk in Hillsborough County, Fla., said Thomas was not present at Thursday's hearing and entered a not-guilty plea through her lawyer, Robert Warchola of Tampa. Her next court date was set for Feb. 15.
Warchola did not return calls seeking comment.
The arrests made headlines because a police report said patrons waiting in line to use the bathroom were angry because they believed Thomas and Keathley were having sex in a stall.
Thomas has denied any sexual conduct and another witness has discounted the sex story, saying Thomas was drunk.
Melissa Holden, the alleged assault victim, has filed a lawsuit against Thomas.
Keathley has entered a written plea of not guilty to charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Her next court date is scheduled for Jan. 18, according to court records.
Both cheerleaders, who were not in town to perform at the game, were fired from the Panthers' TopCats squad.
