- WR Pollard to Practice Squad; WR Arukwe Released
The New York Jets have signed WR Royce Pollard to the practice squad and released WR Stanley Arukwe from the practice squad. The announcements were made by General Manager Mike Tannenbaum. Pollard (WR/6-1/175/Hawai’i/San Diego, CA) joined the Jets as an undrafted free agent (05/07/12) after initially being invited to rookie mini-camp as a tryout player. [...]

- Revis status still uncertain
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Darrelle Revis’ return to the lineup this week isn’t a slam dunk.
“I don’t think we can assume that,” Rex Ryan said Monday. “To the NFL standards, he has to pass tests. He looks to be doing well, so hopefully he’ll be playing.”
Revis didn’t make the trip to Pittsburgh over the weekend because he wasn’t cleared after suffering a “mild” concussion in Week 1. The Jets knew early in the week they’d likely be without their star cornerback, but they didn’t officially rule him out until Friday.

- Morning After Report
Well, as it turns out, LaMarr Woodley was right when he claimed on Twitter that his Pittsburgh Steelers would not be 0-2 following their match-up with the New York Jets on Sunday.
The Jets started out hot — right where the left off after their 20-point drumming against the Buffalo Bills — with two great drives [...]
- The Morning After Drill
For all the optimism, excitement, and hope the New York Jets provided in their dismantling of the Buffalo Bills last week, this week in Pittsburgh it was pessimism, pain, and despair that were delivered to the Jets faithful in heavy doses. Making it even more difficult to stomach was the fast start they got off [...]

- Jets get beat up in Pittsburgh and exposed in every aspect!
Cromartie is still looking to find the TD pass to Mike Wallace and Jeff Cumberland is still running after the ball hits him in the rear for a critical 3rd down conversion. That was the Jets day yesterday and it didn’t get any easier the rest of the day.

PITTSBURGH — A look at the positives and negatives from the 27-10 loss to the Steelers:
1. Garrett McIntyre. Dude played his butt off. Starting for the injured Bryan Thomas, McIntyre finished with six tackles, two sacks and four tackles-for-loss. He’s not the greatest athlete, but he always plays hard. Thomas should be worried about his job.
2. Muhammad Wilkerson. He was one of the big reasons why the Jets shut down the Steelers’ ground game.

- Notes: Kerley makes ‘selfish’ play
PITTSBURGH — One week after winning AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his 68-yard punt return for a touchdown, Jeremy Kerley committed the only turnover Sunday in the Jets’ 27-10 loss to the Steelers. He muffed a punt in the third quarter.
“It was a selfish play,” Kerley said. “If I had to do it again, I definitely would’ve made the fair catch. I wanted to get the team going, get the guys going, and make a play there.”
KILLER CRO: CB Antonio Cromartie, who allowed a 37-yard TD reception by Mike Wallace, bolted before reporters arrived in the locker room.
- Steelers Ground Jets, 27-10
The Jets started the day with a touchdown but never found the end zone again, losing 27-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers today. If the Jets miss the playoffs by a game, they can point to this one and say, “If we’d played a good game, we’d have won.” The Steelers were injured. Troy Polamalu and [...]
- Tebow a non-factor — again
PITTSBURGH — The Jets must still think they’re in Cortland, trying to hide the Wildcat, because they’re doing a pretty good job of keeping it under wraps.
For the second straight week, Tim Tebow was a non-factor on offense. In Sunday’s 27-10 loss to the Steelers, the Jets’ backup quarterback lined up in shotgun for only three plays, not entering the game until the 8:39 mark of the third quarter.
Tebow ran for 22 yards on his first play — a zone-read option — and he handed off the next two plays, a 12-yard run by Joe McKnight and a 6-yard loss by Shonn Greene.
- Third downs are key
PITTSBURGH — New York Jets coach Rex Ryan takes pride in fielding teams that play tough, physical defense, but that unit fell a bit short in the club’s 27-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field.
The Jets — who were playing without All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis and veteran linebacker Bryan Thomas due to injuries — bent and didn’t break in the early going but eventually wore down against the Steelers. While there were several critical situations where the Jets faltered, the difference in the game was third-down conversions.
- Holmes-Taylor rivalry renewed at Heinz
PITTSBURGH — Santonio Holmes and Ike Taylor are not strangers, as the New York Jets wideout and Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback were teammates during Holmes’ first four NFL seasons and the two also train together in the offseason.
Holmes and Taylor renewed their on-field rivalry for the third time Sunday at Heinz Field, and each side could claim several in-game victories. But since the Steelers won 27-10, Taylor certainly would hold bragging rights.
- A Nightmare for ‘Night Train’ Landry
PITTSBURGH — New York Jets coach Rex Ryan compared him to Dick “Night Train” Lane after last week’s game, but safety LaRon Landry did not have a performance befitting the Hall of Fame defensive back Sunday afternoon at Heinz Field.
The 6-foot, 220-pound Landry led the Jets with nine tackles and a forced fumble last week. Landy tallied seven tackles during a 27-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, but was called for two critical personal foul penalties that enhanced drives.
