- Rex report: Top-5 defense is a lock
CORTLAND, N.Y. — New Rex isn’t as brash as Old Rex, but he still exudes tremendous confidence on certain subjects — especially his own defense.
The Jets’ coach all but guaranteed a top-five ranking for his defense. He wouldn’t predict a return to No. 1, their standing in 2009, but he added: “Am I confident in our defense? Absolutely. Granted, I said top-five. I mean, that’s a given, I don’t care who we put out there. You could put (defensive coordinator) Mike Pettine at free safety.

- Practice report: Where’s Santonio?
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Santonio Holmes, nursing a rib-cartilage injury, was nowhere to be seen Wednesday on the practice field. According to the team, he was inside the facility, receiving treatment.

Rex Ryan already has said that Holmes won’t play Saturday night against the Giants — a no-brainer — but the question now becomes his availability for the third preseason game.

- Morning wake-up call: Day 21
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Wednesday is central New York’s last opportunity to see Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow and the gang in living color. Yep, it’s the Jets’ final public practice in this friendly burg. They practice again Thursday, but that’s open only to the media (Wildcat, anyone?). After that, they head home to Florham Park, N.J.
Unless another blast from the past shows up (see: Chad Pennington on Tuesday), the spotlight will likely shift to Saturday night’s preseason game against the Giants.

CORTLAND, N.Y. – It wasn’t a guarantee by any means, but Rex Ryan expressed his envious emotions regarding the New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin’s ’super’ bling Tuesday afternoon.

- Three things we learned: Day 20
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Observations from Tuesday at training camp:
1. Mark Sanchez’s patience is being tested. He might have the toughest quarterback job in the NFL. Not only is he dealing with the Tebow factor and a new offense, but he’s trying to break in a new receiving corps. Without Santonio Holmes, Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens (all injured) his top targets are Patrick Turner, rookie Stephen Hill and rookie Jordan White. On one occasion in practice, Sanchez barked at White for running the wrong route.
- Jets Waive DB Torrance

- Tebow: Birthday boy, cover boy
CORTLAND, N.Y. — Another ho-hum day in the life of Tim Tebow: He turned 25, was serenaded by fans after practice with a chorus of “Happy Birthday” and appeared on the cover of GQ magazine.
This marked the second straight year that a Jets quarterback appeared on the cover of GQ’s football issue. Unlike Mark Sanchez, Tebow didn’t pose for pictures and didn’t consent to an inteview, according to a Jets spokesman. He appears, shirtless, in the spread, but it’s an old photo, taken from his days at Florida.

CORTLAND, N.Y. — The Sione Pouha situation is becoming a bit of a mystery. The nose tackle hasn’t practiced since Aug. 1, when he required stitches for a gash on his forehead, but now his issue is an ailing back.
Pouha hasn’t been seen in recent days. Rex Ryan revealed that Pouha was in Manhattan for “treatment” on his back, although he didn’t say when that visit occurred. Ryan didn’t provide any details, except to say Pouha hasn’t undergone any type of procedures.
- Practice report: Hill hurts finger, Cro scores
CORTLAND, N.Y. — The last thing the Jets need is another injury at wide receiver, but rookie Stephen Hill hurt his right ring finger Tuesday and didn’t finish practice.
The preliminary indication was that the finger wasn’t broken, and it was confirmed later in the day when his X-rays came back negative. The team is calling it “mallet finger,” which means there could be some tendon damage, but it’s not believed to be serious. Hill said he hurt the finger while engaged with CB Darrelle Revis.

CORTLAND, N.Y. — Happy birthday, Tim.
Yes, Tim Tebow turns 25, which is sure to draw a response from the fans at Tuesday’s practice. The question is, does he get a birthday serenade?
After a closed practice that made national headlines because they unveiled the Wildcat, the Jets go back in front of the crowd. If you’re planning to attend, don’t expect to see another dose of the Wildcat. They probably will keep it under wraps until the next closed practice.
