  • Rex Report: Matt wins, Vlad loses
    CORTLAND, N.Y. — So much for that intense left-guard competition. Rex Ryan didn’t even need to see a game before deciding that Matt Slauson — not Vladimir Ducasse — is the Jets’ best bet.

    The Jets talked up Ducasse’s chances of winning the starting job, but he has lost out to Slauson for the second time in three years. For the third straight year, Ducasse — a former second-round pick from UMass — will start the season on the bench.

    Ryan tossed a carrot to Ducasse, telling reporters that he will have a role off the bench.

  • Carr doesn’t envy Jets’ QB situation
    ALBANY, N.Y. — David Carr has marveled at the incredible hype and attention surrounding Jets quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow.

    “I don’t envy their situation at all,” Carr said.

    Like Tebow, Carr is a backup with first-round pedigree. The former 2002 top overall pick, though, is firmly entrenched as Eli Manning’s backup. The dynamic between Sanchez and Tebow could be a full-blown quarterback controversy in a matter of weeks.

    “I don’t think it will be easy,” Carr said when asked how it might impact Sanchez.

  • Holmes ruled out for preseason opener
    CORTLAND, N.Y. — The Jets will be without their No. 1 wide receiver when they open the preseason Friday night in Cincinnati.

    Santonio Holmes, battling a rib-cartilage injury, was ruled out Wednesday by Rex Ryan. Slot receiver Jeremy Kerley (hamstring) also won’t play, leaving a patchwork receiving corps. Rookie Stephen Hill, Patrick Turner and Chaz Schilens, who have a combined total of 82 career receptions, will be the top three wideouts in the game.

  • Practice report: Tebow beats Rex — again

    CORTLAND, N.Y. — After two days of fighting, the Jets managed to restrain themselves Wednesday and made it through the entire practice without any skirmishes.

    It got slightly tense when QB Mark Sanchez yelled at OLB Aaron Maybin for hitting QB Matt Simms as he delivered a pass, violating the no-contact rule for quarterbacks. Nothing came of it, although Maybin was flagged later in the practice for unnecessary roughness on WR Eron Riley. Maybin is having a productive camp, but he’s so relentless that he sometimes crosses the line and gets too physical.

  • Morning wake-up call: Day 14
    CORTLAND, N.Y. — Round 3, anyone?

    After two straight days of practice skirmishes, the Jets return to the field for their final practice before Friday night’s preseason opener in Cincinnati. This time, the practice is open to the public.

    The spotlight, of course, will be on the players’ behavior. I’d be surprised if there are any altercations. C Nick Mangold practices for the first time since last Friday; he returned Tuesday from London, where he watched his sister in the Olympics.
