New York Jets news and notes

1) Slauson injured? New York Jets offensive lineman Matt Slauson missed practice on Wednesday due to an injury to his right knee.  Slauson is expected to return to practice on Thursday but this is definitely something to keep an eye on.

2) LT, T-Rich sit- Both LaDainian Tomlinson and Tony Richardson sat out of practice on Wednesday as Ryan is starting to give some of his older veterans rest during the week.  It will be interesting to see how Tomlinson performs the rest of the season as some believe that he is starting to slow down after a hot start.

3) Edwards amped- On Sunday Braylon Edwards faces his former team for the first team and it is no surprise that the playmaker is super amped for the match-up. Braylon was traded to the Jets last season after a turbulent career in Cleveland, which included a rocky relationship with the organization as well as the fans.  I would not be surprised to see the Jets get Edwards the ball early in the game, but they must try to keep his emotions somewhat in check.  This has the potential to be a close game and Gang Green cannot afford stupid personal foul penalties.

4) Push-up time- According to Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, Rex Ryan has implemented a team wide punishment for when a player commits a penalty in practice.  Team wide meaning everyone from the players, to the training staff, to even owner Woody Johnson.  Cimini reported that on Wednesday when a player committed a penalty the entire organization, except for that player, had to do push 10 push-ups.  Reportedly Woody Johnson along with every other member of the Jets organization took part in the punishment.  You got to give Rex credit for this one because A) it is great to see that he is trying to address the Jets penalty problems and B) he continues to promote team unity.  Could you imagine if Mangini tried to pull this off and what the backlash would have been?

5) New starter in Miami- According to several published reports former Jet quarterback Chad Pennington has been named the new starter in Miami.  Pennington will be taking over for Chad Henne, who has somewhat struggled this season.  This seems to be a desperate move by the Dolphins as Henne seems to be enduring the trials and tribulations of a young quarterback.
