- Sanchez tests Rex’s patience — already
After last season, Rex Ryan said Mark Sanchez needs to erase his hard drive and start over. As for Ryan’s hard drive, it remans intact. That was the takeaway from Wednesday, the Jets’ second OTA practice, the first open to the media.
Sanchez, who threw three interceptions in a non-contact practice, became perhaps the first quarterback in recent history to be publicly chided by his coach for a bad performance in May. May! But here’s the thing: Ryan didn’t see it as May; he saw it as Week 18, an extension of last season’s 26-turnover debacle.

- Shades of ’12: Injuries at receiver
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets’ first open OTA practice Wednesday looked a lot like many of their games last season — their best receivers were on the sideline.
Starters Santonio Holmes (foot rehab) and Stephen Hill (knee swelling) didn’t practice. Neither did Clyde Gates (hamstring) and Jordan White (undisclosed).
“We had a good-looking receiving corps that wasn’t out there,” Rex Ryan said.
Holmes’ absence was expected, as he’s still recovering from a LisFranc injury that required surgery last September.
- Rex not pleased with Sanchez’s INTs
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Rex Ryan is not going to let Mark Sanchez’s three interceptions slide.
“This is OTAs and things, but that’s going to be the pressure we’re putting on him that this is unacceptable,” Ryan said. “Did a lot of great things, not that you try to cover up the fact that you had some bad plays, you flat tell him we can’t have these and all that type of stuff. He knows.”
Sanchez threw three interceptions on Wednesday as part of a 6-for-11 performance.
