- Tanny: Tebow will get 10 to 20 percent
There has been several months of speculation on how much playing time Tim Tebow will receive in the Jets’ Wildcat package. On Friday morning, GM Mike Tannenbaum put a number to it — albeit a vague number.
“Mark (Sanchez) is going to be on the field for the lion’s share,” Tannenbaum said on “Mike & Mike” in the Morning on ESPN Radio. “You guys will see. His playing time will be 80-90 percent over the 16 games. He’s clearly our quarterback.”
OK, let’s do some math.
- Sione Po’uha and Eric Smith Out, Keller “Ready to Roll.”
Florham Park, N.J.- Rex Ryan has ruled out Sione Po’uha and Eric Smith for Sunday’s game against the Bills, but said he expects everyone else to play. Ryan said Po’uha has made improvements and has been begging him to play, but the Jets clearly don’t want to risk further injury and feel comfortable enough with [...]
- Po’uha, Smith out; Keller likely to play
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets defensive tackle Sione Po’uha and safety Eric Smith will miss Sunday’s season opener against the Buffalo Bills due to injuries, coach Rex Ryan said Friday.
Po’uha has a back injury, while Smith is dealing with hip and knee ailments.
Ryan said he “feels better” about both players returning in Week 2.
“(Sione’s) close. He really is close. He’s begging us to play, but I think we’re gonna be smart and give it a little time,” Ryan said.
- Rex: "There’s Something About That First Game"
Coach Ryan is excited for the season opener on Sunday.
- Keller runs routes during Friday’s practice
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets tight end Dustin Keller stretched, worked on the side and then ran some routes with the offense during the portion of Friday’s practice open to the media.
Keller (hamstring) was limited Thursday, but believes he will play in Sunday’s season opener versus Buffalo.
Also, defensive tackle Sione Po’uha participated in position drills. Like Keller, Po’uha (back) was also limited Thursday.
The Buffalo News reported that Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson (groin) was on the field for Friday’s practice.

- Jets-Bills: W2W4
Are you ready for some Tebow?
After months of anticipation, the Jets open the fourth season of the Rex Ryan era Sunday against the Bills. The last time we saw them in a real game was New Year’s Day, and they were fighting among themselves in Miami. The team hasn’t changed much since then, but the attitude is better (so they tell us) and they have Tim Tebow as their backup quarterback/Wildcat quarterback/personal punt protector/publicity stunt. (Joe Namath made me add the last one.

- ‘D’ notes: Play calls, safeties and Revis
After being responsible for most of the playcalling on defense last year, coordinator Mike Pettine acknowledged that Rex Ryan will be more involved with those duties in 2012.
“We used the word collaboration and that’s the way we do it. There are some opponents that I have a better feel for, that I’ll do the bulk of it and vice versa. Sometimes it’s during a game, we’ll switch it in game, we’ll always talk and have a plan for it,” Pettine said. “I think that’s the strength of what we do is that we have the ability to bounce calls off of each other.
- Powell stepping into bigger role
Bilal Powell won’t have to wait 11 weeks to receive a carry this year.
Powell enters this season as the Jets’ third-down back and should receive carries against Buffalo on Sunday. While coach Rex Ryan said Powell and Joe McKnight share the team’s No. 2 role, Powell received more carries during the preseason.
“Whenever my opportunity comes I’m going to make the best of every opportunity,” Powell said.
Ryan described Powell, a fourth-round pick in 2011, as a back who has the skill set to be an effective runner, pass protect and receive.
- Sunday tix still available, but no blackout
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets haven’t sold out MetLife Stadium for Sunday’s opener, at least not in the traditional sense, but you will still see the game on local TV.
“We won’t be blacked out,” owner Woody Johnson said Thursday. “Whether we’ve sold every seat, I don’t know.”
The Jets will satisfy the sellout rule for this game because they’ve sold the required number of tickets — an amount predetermined by the team, per league rules. They expect that to be the case for every home game and, therefore, they don’t anticipate having to purchase tickets on their own to satisfy the requirement.
- Tebow one of Westhoff’s favorites
To Mike Westhoff, Tim Tebow invokes memories of Dan Marino.
No, not as a quarterback. But in terms of what the Jets special teams coach sees from Tebow as a person, not just on the football field.
“To me he’s one of those guys that takes what he does and does it 100 percent and doesn’t ask anything else out of it,” Westhoff said on Thursday. “He’s one of those guys that you hoped what he would be off the field, he is in my opinion; (seeing him) in my meetings.
- For Jets, a win Sunday starts up front
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Football games are won and lost in the trenches.
A cliche we’ve all heard before. Against a revamped Buffalo Bills defensive front, Sunday’s game will be decided by the effectiveness of executing this overused football phrase and not by the arm of Mark Sanchez.
Or the legs of Tim Tebow, for that matter.
- Injury report: Keller, Po’uha limited
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The official practice reports from Thursday.
Our analysis: The news is that TE Dustin Keller returned to practice on a limited basis. Afteward, Keller said he expects to play Sunday, barring a setback. Rookie WR Stephen Hill showed up in the practice report with a calf injury. He was seen in the locker room after practice, and didn’t seem to have any issues. The news out of Buffalo is that WR Stevie Johnson, Darrelle Revis’ old friend, didn’t practice after going limited on Wednesday.
