- Jets Waive Josh Baker After Season Ending Injury
Josh Baker was never going to be the biggest name or threat on this Jets offense, but his absence will most certainly be felt. Baker is one of those sneaky good players who slips out into a pocket of open space and makes timely plays, quarterbacks love to have the types of security blankets that [...]

- Keller, Baker injuries: Good news, bad news
Dustin Keller, who pulled a hamstring on the first series of Sunday night’s loss to the Panthers, said early Monday morning that he expects to face the Bills in 13 days. That’s good news for the Jets’ struggling offense.
“I should be fine for the season opener,” Keller said in a text message to ESPNNewYork.com, adding that he may avoid an MRI exam because “it’s not that bad.”
Keller can rest this week because the starters won’t play Thursday night against the Eagles in the final preseason game.

- Postgame Recap: Jets Lose To Panthers, 17-12
The Jets lost to the Carolina Panthers tonight 17-12, and they still haven’t scored any touchdowns, but there are positives to take away from this game. This is the kind of game most fans expected last week, where the team looked better than in its first preseason game. Instead, there was almost nothing positive to [...]
- Three up, three down
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Looking at some of the positives and negatives from the Jets’ 17-12 loss to the Panthers:
Austin Howard. You can bet the Jets are feeling better about their right-tackle situation. Howard, who started ahead of the demoted Wayne Hunter, probably nailed down the job with a terrific outing. He didn’t allow any sacks, and spent a good part of the night blocking Panthers DE Charles Johnson, one of the highest-paid pass rushers in the league.
- Playing-time breakdown
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The starting offense played about 2 1/2 quarters (a total of 36 plays) Sunday night. Here’s an unofficial breakdown of the snap counts:
Shonn Greene — 27 snaps
Bilal Powell — 7
Comment: Powell was used as the third-down back. He appears to have locked up that job.
Dustin Keller — 2 snaps
Dedrick Epps — 25
Wayne Hunter — 10
Josh Baker — 8
Comment: Keller pulled a hamstring on the first drive.
- Austin Howard Against The Panthers
Austin Howard stepped into the starting lineup against the Carolina Panthers and the early returns were good. He set out to prove that he is a starting right tackle and he played well. No sacks allowed is the stat that is the most encouraging. The line as a whole can do better when it comes [...]
- WR Hill is learning on the job
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill has been learning on the job this preseason — responsible for soaring moments, like a 32-yard catch from quarterback Mark Sanchez, and an interception when a ball slipped through his hands.
“That was just me trying to run before the catch,” Hill said.
Another lesson in the 17-12 preseason loss to the Panthers on Sunday night. The Jets are the only team in the NFL that has not scored a touchdown in thee games.
- Ryan: Coples copped an attitude
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Quinton Coples got his first start with the first-team defense in the Jets’ 17-12 loss to the Panthers on Sunday night. At the start, the rookie defensive end looked like a capable fill-in for Mike DeVito (calf). He got to quarterback Cam Newton and worked well with the defensive line.
But to coach Rex Ryan’s dismay, he also copped a little attitude when Ryan kept Coples in with the second-team defense.
“He kind of had a woe-is-me when we took out the starters,” Ryan said.
- NY Jets Fall To Carolina Panthers 12 -19
The New York Jets flashed potential on offense for the 1st time this pre-season, but still couldn’t manage touchdown. The Jets played their best first half of pre-season football against the Carolina Panthers tonight. Mark Sanchez went 11 – 18 passing for 123 yards with a one interception. A Stephen Hill drop caused the interception on [...]
- Rapid Reaction: Panthers 17, Jets 12
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The preseason can’t end soon enough for the New York Jets. They became the first team in 35 years to go without a touchdown in its first three preseason games, and they lost TE Dustin Keller (hamstring) and LB David Harris (ankle) to injuries. Oh, yes, and they dropped to 0-3, losing to the Carolina Panthers 17-12 Sunday night at MetLife Stadium.
Woe is O: In their final tune-up for the regular season, the Mark Sanchez-led starting unit stunk — again.
- JETS-PANTHERS HALFTIME HIGHLIGHTS
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – It may have taken three preseason games, but the Jets offense has finally showed up to the stadium. After averaging 4.3 yards per play over the course of their first two preseason games, the Jets had three plays of 20 or more yards — a sign that the team is moving [...]

New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow avoids a sack and scrambles through the Carolina Panthers defense to a 20-yard gain in the fourth quarter.
- Pregame notes: Bell, DeVito out
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The story line is obvious: Can the Mark Sanchez-led offense, buoyed by the return of wideout Santonio Holmes, find a rhythm and the end zone? The Jets have yet to score a touchdown this preseason, covering 24 possessions in two games.
That’s the big story Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers. Other things to watch:
1. RT Austin Howard makes his second preseason start, but this time he’s The Guy. This is the chance of a lifetime for the journeyman lineman, who can lock up the starting job with a solid performance.

Newly acquired New York Jets safety LaRon Landry picks off an errant Derek Anderson pass and returns it 22 yards.
