FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Mark Gastineau, who will be inducted Monday night into the Jets Ring of Honor along with Wesley Walker, spoke on Friday afternoon about the years since he retired from football. He detailed his peaceful life in New Jersey with his church, his wife and their two dogs. His pension, he said, is a blessing.
Inevitably, he was asked about the current Jets’ defensive problems.
“I don’t have any right to comment on those things and I will never step on a coach’s toes,” Gastineau said.

- Jets get physical in practice
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — When Rex Ryan met with his coaching staff early in the week, he put out a suggestion box, so to speak, asking for ideas on how to get the team out of its funk. OL coach Dave DeGuglielmo offered this:
An eight-minute period in practice in which the first-team offense faced the first-team defense — the type of thing they do in training camp.
So they did it Thursday, and Ryan loved it. All but one play in the period was a run.

“It’s a screen. It’s the way it’s supposed to be. You invite the rush and you throw it right over

through.” – Mark Sanchez 9.30.12

- Holmes faces six-month rehab
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets haven’t provided any details about Santonio Holmes’ season-ending foot injury, which will require surgery, but ESPN injury expert Stephania Bell said the typical recovery time for a Lisfranc injury is six months.
That means Holmes should be ready to go by training camp next summer, but there will be peaks and valleys once he returns to full activity, she said. His position, wide receiver, which demands a lot of cutting, will make it “a very slow process,” she said.

- Injury report: Jets could be three short
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets could be without three key contributors for Monday night’s game against the Texans as receiver Stephen Hill, tight end Dustin Keller and defensive tackle Sione Pouha missed Thursday’s practice.
For Pouha, who played Sunday against the 49ers, he was outside during the portion of practice open to the media but left to go inside the team’s facility, which is a never a good sign. His status will become more clear over the next two days.
- Jets’ D out to stop run vs. Houston
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Physicality hasn’t been the problem for the Jets’ porous run defense.
“It’s been an issue of alignment, assignment, fundamentals, tackling,” linebacker Aaron Maybin said.
That will have to change quickly as the Jets get ready to host Houston’s high-powered running game on Monday night. The Jets are next to last in the league in rushing yards allowed at 172.8, while Houston is ninth in rushing yards per game with 136.5.
“It’s going to be a great test for us up front,” Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito said.
- Tebow not frustrated with his role
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow said he is not frustrated with his role in the Jets’ offense and has not talked to anyone about his lack of involvement. ESPN’s Ed Werder said Tuesday that Tebow is frustrated with his lack of usage and believes the Jets haven’t honored promises they made upon acquiring him.
“I mean, yeah, you get frustrated when you lose football games. I think everyone in the locker room when you lose games you’re a little frustrated, but I think that’s natural,” Tebow said.
