- No practice for Pace, Scott, McKnight
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — LB Calvin Pace was a new name on the Jets’ injury list Wednesday. He didn’t practice because of a “nasty” shin injury, as Rex Ryan called it. But Ryan said he’s encouraged that Pace will be able to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
RB Joe McKnight (high-ankle sprain) and LB Bart Scott (dislocated toe) also didn’t practice. McKnight was “pretty sore” after playing last Sunday, according to Ryan. Scott has been battling a painful injury for several weeks.

- More Tebow Or No Tebow
The Jets made a big splash this offseason acquiring quarterback Tim Tebow via a trade with the Denver Broncos. Tebow not only took over the starting quarterback job with the Broncos standing at 1-4, leading them to the playoffs advancing one round, but his strong religious beliefs and charitable works makes his popularity unprecedented.

- Scouting Report: Early look at Dolphins
A few quick thoughts on the Jets’ upcoming opponent:
1. The Dolphins (3-3), coming off their bye week, have won two in a row. They could easily be 5-1, but they lost by a field goal to the Jets and the Cards. At the same time, they haven’t knocked off any elite teams — they’ve beaten the Raiders, Bengals and Rams.
2. They’ve never been swept by the Rex Ryan-coached Jets.
3. RB Reggie Bush will be a big story throughout the week. Upset by Ryan’s “hot sauce” line before the previous meeting — as in, we need to pour hot sauce on him — Bush came out after the game and ripped the Jets, suggesting they deserved losing Darrelle Revis to a season-ending knee injury.

- Byrd, Mersereau: 20 years after collision
Twenty years ago, Dennis Byrd and Scott Mersereau collided on a football field. It was horrific. Believe me, I was there. In 25 years of covering professional football, I never saw that many players crying in a locker room. Byrd broke his neck and, obviously, his life would never be the same.
Byrd and Mersereau were good friends, but they went their separate ways. It happens to all of us; we lose touch with our friends. Because it’s the 20-year anniversary of the collision, I decided to catch up with the former teammates for a feature story.

- Source: Jets try out two tight ends
With Jeff Cumberland sidelined with a dislocated hand, the Jets began formulating a contingency plan. They worked out two free-agent tight ends Tuesday, according to a league source — Joey Haynos and Colin Cochart.
Haynos has played with four different teams, including the Dolphins (2008 to 2010), whom the Jets face Sunday at MetLife Stadium. There’s your Tony Sparano connection. Haynos (6-foot-8) has 21 career receptions for 184 yards and three TDs.
