New York Jets news and notes

1) Revis likely out- New York Jets All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis remains out of practice and more than likely will not play on Sunday.  One can only wonder if this hamstring injury will linger around the entire season.

2) Pace to see action- Linebacker Calvin Pace continues to makes progress and there is a chance he could see some action on Sunday. Pace will not start, but could get on the field on third down where the Jets defense has struggled a bit.

3) Jets sign Omon, Rinehart to practice squad- On Wednesday the New York Jets announced that they have signed running back Xavier Omon and  guard Chad Rinehart to the practice squad.  (Note: The Jets lost running back Chauncey Washington to the Rams as they signed him to their active roster.)

4) Coleman to start? It appears that cornerback Drew Coleman is going to start opposite of Antonio Cromartie on Sunday, pushing Kyle Wilson to nickel back. This is a smart move by the Jets as Wilson has been struggling and seems to be very effective working inside.  Rex Ryan offered the following comments on the situation:

On if Drew Coleman is practicing with the ones on defense because of Kyle Wilson’s struggles…

“I think Kyle’s struggling a little bit, without question, but I think Drew has earned it. When we put him in, he stood up. Both of those guys will play a bunch. We think as coaches that he deserves a shot.”

On Wilson not getting his head around to play the ball…

“Right, you are either in control or out of control. When you’re in control, you should play the football. If you’re out of control, you have to play through the defender, the offensive receiver. He really did a good job the first game even though he got flagged. I thought he looked back a couple of times. Clearly, the one penalty he had, it was poor judgment. It looked like the ball was going out-of-bounds anyway. He’s playing green right now a little bit, but he studies. Everything he does is like a professional. I really think he’s going to get better, and soon.”

On if they are surprised Wilson is struggling…

“I think, ideally, we wanted him to come in and be the nickel while he’s earning. It’s tough enough when you need to learn to play the nickel and the outside. That’s kind of hard. This guy, quite honestly, has been much better than I thought picking things up. I think the communication part (needs some work). It’s definitely not a physical thing, it’s more of a technique issue and maybe tightening the thing down a bit more. I think he’s going to be fine.”

On if Wilson will be moved inside if Coleman starts…

“I think that would be an ideal situation for Kyle.”
