- BREAKING NEWS: Howard ousts Hunter at RT
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Third year offensive lineman Austin Howard, Rex Ryan announced at his Thursday’s press conference, will be replacing Wayne Hunter at the right tackle position this Sunday as the Jets host the Carolina Panthers for the team’s third — and most important — preseason game.
Howard, who boasts a career total of four [...]
- Report: Revis questions front office
The Jets’ poor start on offense has fueled questions about whether the front office has surrounded Mark Sanchez with enough weapons. The best player on the team, Darrelle Revis, apparently is wondering the same thing.
“You’ve got to do what’s best for the team,” Revis told Newsday on Wednesday, “and I don’t know if we’ve been wise in that department.”
That, of course, is a reference to GM Mike Tannenbaum. Asked about Revis’ comment Thursday morning in a previously scheduled interview with WFAN radio, Tannenbaum said he hadn’t read the remark.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — It’s almost over — training camp, that is.
The Jets have a full practice Thursday, their next-to-last practice open to the public. Once they get through the couple of days, things start happening quickly:
The third preseason game. The first major roster cutdown. The fourth preseason game on a short week. The final roster cutdown. Before you know it, they’ll be preparing for the Bills in Week 1.
11:10 – 11:30 a.

- Three things we learned on Day 28
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Observations from Wednesday:
1. Looks like no Wildcat in the preseason: The starters will play into the third quarter Sunday night against the Panthers, but Rex Ryan said he doesn’t envision Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez on the field together. In other words, he’s not planning to unveil the Wildcat. Because Sanchez won’t play in the final preseason game, it means the world won’t get to see the over-hyped Wildcat until Week 1 against the Bills.
- Practice report: Holmes, Kerley limited
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Slowly, the Jets’ receiving corps is coming together. It’s about baby steps.
Santonio Holmes (ribs) and Jeremy Kerley, both of whom missed the first two preseason games, returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis. There’s a chance one or both could play Sunday night against the Panthers.
Holmes, wearing the red non-contact jersey, took five reps in team drills. He didn’t make any catches, but he seemed to be running without any discomfort.

- Report: Jets Inquire About Maurice Jones-Drew
Per Yahoo Sports’ Tom Krasniqi, “the Jets are one of several teams that have called to inquire about Maurice Jones-Drew. This would seem to conflict with previous reports the Jets were not interested. But in today’s news cycle, nearly everything is so five minutes ago, and rumors about the Jets possible interest in the running [...]

- Hunter back, ready to practice
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — One day after being excused from practice for an undisclosed personal reason, embattled RT Wayne Hunter was back with the Jets and will practice Wednesday afternoon, according to Rex Ryan.
Hunter, coming off a poor performance Saturday night against the Giants, met with Ryan on Tuesday and didn’t accompany the team to its evening practice at MetLife Stadium. He attended meetings earlier in the day. Ryan has been tight-lipped as to why he excused Hunter.

- MJD to Jets is pure fantasy
I’ve been getting bombarded with questions from Twitter followers on whether the Jets have any interest in Maurice Jones-Drew, who is holding out in Jacksonville and reportedly is open to a trade, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Tuesday.
I can tell you this: The Jets have zero interest in trading for Jones-Drew.
Sure, he’d raise the Jets’ fantasy-football profile (MJD himself is an avid fantasy player), but the trade would make no sense on several levels.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Wayne Hunter is expected to return as the Jets head back to their training facility in Florham Park for Day 28 of camp. Hunter missed the evening practice at MetLife Stadium, which was open to fans, but it was an excused absence.
The schedule gets back to normal. Rex Ryan addresses the media just after noon, and the team will practice from 1:30 to 4. On Thursday, the Jets will open that facility up to fans as well for a 12:30 practice.

New York Jets head coach was asked to give an injury update and here is what he had to say: It’s good to see Santonio (Holmes) out here, running more individual routes. We got him in a red jersey so we don’t want him to get hit by any player or coach, for that matter. [...]

New York Jets right tackle, Wayne Hunter, was excused from practice on Tuesday night. The Jets held practice at MetLife stadium and Rex Ryan said Hunter was excused for personal reasons. He expects Hunter to be back at practice tomorrow and Rex also indicated that Hunter will be with the first team on Sunday night [...]
- Practice report: Tebow thrills MetLife crowd
Tim Tebow may not have dominated the day, but he did make the most anticipated throw of the day.
As the Jets opened camp to their fans at MetLife Stadium — this was the day they were slated to go back to Hofstra but construction interfered — all of the quarterbacks got into an informal competition.
The goal was to throw the ball into a yellow garbage can about 25 yards away. It was cute at first but although Tebow, Mark Sanchez, Matt Simms and Greg McElroy got close at times, round after round went by and no one hit the “receiver.

Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is lucky he doesn’t have Jets linebacker Bart Scott as a teammate.
Asked about the the hazing incident gone viral in which Amukamara got thrown into a pool full of ice water by defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, Scott scoffed to ESPN New York 98.7’s Stephen A. Smith on Tuesday, “I mean, I heard about it, but come on man, at the end of the day, Amukamara is still a rookie after (seven) games. This morning he should’ve brought the doughnuts.
