- Is a Change at Running Back in Order?
Florham Park, N.J.- Darrelle Revis is out for the season and as Rex Ryan said it’s up to every one of his players to step up in Revis’ absence. That means not just the defense, but the offense as well.
Dustin Keller needs to return, the receivers and tight ends have to get open, beat press coverage [...]

- Jets sign RB Grimes From Texans Practice Squad; Tryout Veteran CB Carr
The Jets have made a roster move today signing undrafted running back Jonathan Grimes (5’10”, 201) off of the Houston Texans practice squad to their 53-man roster. Grimes rushed for over 1,400 yards with a 5.0 yards-per-carry average along with 23 receptions for 262 yards during his senior season at William & Mary. He also [...]
- Jets sign RB from Texans practice squad
One day after Rex Ryan put his running backs on notice by saying “we left some yards on the field,” the Jets signed RB Jonathan Grimes from the Texans’ practice squad, a source confirmed.
Grimes is an undrafted rookie from William & Mary who impressed the Texans in training camp. In the preseason, he rushed 28 times for 130 yards, a 4.6 average. He was one of their final cuts and landed on the practice squad.
Grimes joins a crowded but unproductive backfield.

- Five plays that shaped the game: Week 3
A look back at the most impactful plays in the Jets’ ugly/lucky OT win over the Dolphins:
1. LaRon’s LaScore: After a lifeless first half, S LaRon Landry energized the Jets with the first touchdown of his career — an 18-yard interception return. Landry, their defensive MVP after three games, did a terrific job of reading Ryan Tannehill. The rookie QB drifted to his right and stared down TE Anthony Fasano, who was open along the sideline. Landry dropped into a deep-half zone and broke toward Fasano.
- Drive of the game: Kerley TD
The Jets had gone 18 straight possessions without a touchdown — shades of the preseason — when they got the ball with 5:34 remaining in the fourth quarter, trailing by four points Sunday to the Dolphins. Somehow, they managed to overcome the bad karma to produce an eight-play, 53-yard touchdown drive, ending with Mark Sanchez’s 7-yard scoring pass to Jeremy Kerley.
This was anything but flawless — Sanchez overthrew a wide-open Chaz Schilens on what could’ve been a 69-yard TD — but the Jets made a few alert plays to keep the drive going.

- Rex: ‘I’m confident’ in Wilson
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Life’s about to change for Kyle Wilson. He’ll be stepping in as the Jets starting cornerback for the injured Darrelle Revis.
“I just feel like I’m going to continue to go out there and do my job, make plays and have fun,” Wilson said.
Wilson, a first-round pick in 2010, has served as the Jets’ third corner behind Revis and Antonio Cromartie.
After playing inconsistently for his first two years in the league, Wilson has steadied in Year 3.

- Revis took costly leap of faith
“Sooner or later, something has to happen.” — Darrelle Revis, June 13
All spring, there was a question of whether Darrelle Revis would attend the New York Jets’ mandatory minicamp. When he did, the star cornerback was asked if he planned to attend his team’s training camp.
Each time, Revis was noncommittal.
He had held out as a rookie and then again in 2010. That year, when Revis skipped out in Cortland and was a subplot in HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” his agents and the Jets came to an agreement Revis thought would be revisited in two years.
- Bryan Thomas And Patrick Turner Are Back
The carousel with the Jets roster continues, this time Bryan Thomas and Patrick Turner have been signed once again. WR Stephen Hill has a pulled hamstring so bringing Turner back makes a lot of sense. Especially when you factor in how the Jets offense struggled yesterday. Here is the official announcement from the Jets, along [...]
- Pace: No bounty on Bush
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — There was no harm intended, Calvin Pace said Monday.
Trying to clarify the remarks he made about Reggie Bush after Sunday’s game, Pace claimed there was “no bounty” on the Dolphins’ running back.
“Apparently, I said something about Reggie Bush, trying to get him out of the game,” Pace told reporters at his locker. “I wasn’t trying to say it as if we were trying to hurt him. I’m sad to see him get hurt. We aren’t running any kind of bounty system or anything like that and, actually, looking at the play, somebody just fell on his knee.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Reacting to injuries, the Jets made several roster moves Monday. They re-signed OLB Bryan Thomas and WR Patrick Turner, and waived DT Marcus Dixon, CB Donnie Fletcher and OT Dennis Landolt.
Thomas’ return came as no surprise. He was released Saturday in a move designed to create a roster spot for Sunday’s game in Miami. Even though it didn’t cost him a nickel — his salary is guaranteed — Thomas, the Jets’ longest-tenured player, said Monday he was “pissed” that he was let go for a couple of days.

Florham Park, N.J.- A win is a win, but good lord that was one ugly win.

A look back at a wacky and sloppy win for the Jets, a game that took exactly four hours:
1. Santonio Holmes. Returning to the scene of his infamous benching, Holmes rescued the Jets from what would’ve been a crushing defeat. He tied a career high with nine receptions, and recorded his first 100-yard receiving day (149) in 28 games. He came up big in overtime, one of his trademarks. Finally, he played “Santonio football,” as he called it.
