The Jets, like everyone else, are awaiting some type of resolution to the replacement referees. 

Though they say they're not worrying about the current officials' affect on the outcome of their games, it's clear players are hoping the old refs are back soon.

RG Brandon Moore: “It’d be good just to have them back, sooner rather than later. I look forward to seeing them and I hope it works out. It won’t change anything in what we do. Maybe I’ll have a little more confidence that the guys calling the penalties and having to make crucial decisions know more about what they’re doing.”

LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson: “I think it’ll be back to business as usual. I know there’s been some controversy. It’ll be good to have things running at full-speed again.”

QB/RB Tim Tebow: "We gotta play with whoever’s out there and we’re not gonna let that bother us, no matter who it is. We’re not gonna worry about what we can’t control."
