- Morning wake-up call: Day 11
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Sunday is a day off for the players — no practice. The coaches will meet and evaluate tape of Saturday night’s intrasquad scrimmage.
For the first time in training camp, the team can start to focus on an actual game. The Jets open the preseason Friday night in Cincinnati. The players are grateful because, frankly, they’re tired of competing against each other. Camp has reached the tedious stage and they’re ready for a change in the routine.

- Three things we learned on Day 10
CORTLAND, N.Y. — A few take-aways from Saturday night’s Green & White scrimmage:
1. Cromartie picked a bad time to hit somebody. Never known as a physical cornerback, Antonio Cromartie drilled WR Santonio Holmes in the back (looked like a clean hit), resulting in a rib injury for Holmes. Maybe Cromartie, who created a controversy last week when he said he could be the second-best receiver on the team, has his sights set on being No. 1. He should save the tough-guy stuff for the real games.
- Slow start for Ground & Pound
CORTLAND, N.Y. — So much for Ground & Pound.
The Jets’ top three running backs combined for only 23 yards on 11 carries in Saturday night’s intrasquad scrimmage, hardly a grand debut for Tony Sparano’s run-oriented attack.
Shonn Greene (six carries for 5 yards) and Bilal Powell (three for 7) were held in check. Joe McKnight (two for 11) broke a 15-yard run, but he fumbled on the play. McKnight has had fumbling issues in the past, and he can’t afford mistakes because he’s battling Powell for the No.
- Sanchez outshines Tebow in scrimmage
CORTLAND, N.Y. — It was clear who was the people’s choice at quarterback during the New York Jets’ scrimmage Saturday night. You can hear fans yelling “Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!” at different points of the night from the crowd of 9,200.
But Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez looked unfazed by Tebow’s big reception and huge cheers. Instead, Sanchez did the talking with his arm.
Sanchez had a very good outing, completing 11-of-16 passes and a touchdown in New York’s first team-wide scrimmage.
- Holmes Injury Update: X-Rays Show No Fracture

It was believed that Holmes had broken a rib but x-rays were negative, showing no fracture, and Holmes has been listed as day-to-day: X-Rays on Holmes were negative, team spokesman said. [...]

While an official diagnosis has not been given it appears that wide receiver Santonio Holmes has suffered a broken rib during the Jets annual “Green and White” scrimmage: Mark Sanchez lost his primary weapon during Saturday night’s intrasquad scrimmage.

- Sanchez stars, Tebow flops in debut
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Quick takeaways from the Jets’ controlled scrimmage, which drew an announced crowd of 9,200 in the SUNY Cortland stadium:
• QB Tim Tebow made his Jets debut, putting a charge into the crowd when he came on the field. But that was it. He was 0-for-3 with one sack, three rushes for 14 yards and a completion to Eric Smith as the up-back on a fake punt. It wasn’t pretty for Tebow, but he worked exclusively with the second-team offense.
- Live: Scrimmage update
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The annual Green & White scrimmage began at 6 p.m., with an estimated crowd of about 6,000 watching the debut of Tim Tebow. Some early notes:
• Tebow received a loud ovation when he came on with the second-team offense, replacing starter Mark Sanchez. How’d he do? Tebow was Tebow, moving around the pocket and showing of his scrambling skills. In his first two possessions, a total of eight plays, he scrambled three times for 14 yards.
