Nothing but Jets
New York Jets news, commentary and insider info from beat writer Kimberley A. Martin.
For the second straight week, the Jets will be without Dustin Keller (hamstring).
The tight end was listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report, but downgraded to out the following day.
Keller did not play against the Steelers in Week 2 after suffering a setback in the days leading up to the game. He told reporters earlier this week that he expected to face the Dolphins if he didn’t...Read more »
You know you've made it as a celebrity when Annie Leibovitz handles your photo shoot for Vogue. Tim Tebow might be having trouble getting on the field as quarterback of the Jets’ Wildcat offense, but he had no trouble landing in the pages of Vogue in an article featuring a Leibovitz photo of Tebow looking like Atlas holding up a giant tire.
So, when Tebow got to his locker after Friday’s practice,...Read more »
Jets linebacker Bart Scott and reporter Dan Leberfeld exchanged angry words Friday afternoon during the locker-room interview session when the 6-2, 242-pound linebacker had to be restrained by a team official from going after him.
The incident began when Leberfeld, who runs a magazine called "Jets Confidential" and has covered the team for 18 seasons after previously working...Read more »
LaRon Landry said Thursday that he never worries about penalties and fines while in the moment of a game.
Well, today, the Jets safety was forced to confront the reality of his "kill shot" style approach. The dreaded FedEx “fine” envelope eventually found Landry – and included his $15,750 punishment for his 15-yard horse-collar penalty on Pittsburgh’s Aaron Brown in last week’s loss.

The official word won’t come until after practice, but it doesn’t look as though tight end Dustin Keller (hamstring) or fullback John Conner (knee) will be ready to play for the Jets Sunday in Miami.
As soon as the warmup period was over at Friday’s practice, those two moved off to the side to join the rehab group, which also included backup cornerback Ellis Lankster (low back) initially....Read more »
As I was working on my matchups for Sunday's Jets-Dolphins game, I was reminded of how well the Jets have fared when Shonn Greene has one of his breakout days. The team is 5-0 (including a playoff win over Cincinnati during the 2009 season) when the running back hits the 100+ plateau:
144 yards vs. OAK on 10/20/09 135 yards vs. CIN on 1/9/10 (playoffs) 117 yards vs. BUF on 10/3/10 112...Read more »
It's the dilemma of every quarterbacks coach/
There just aren't enough practice reps to go around for backups, even if it happens to be Tim Tebow.
Despite the big plans the Jets (we assume) have for him, Matt Cavanaugh's hands essentially are tied. Mark Sanchez's starting role dictates that he should, and will, get the bulk of the practice snaps, the QBs coach said.
"It is...Read more »
It’s not just about stopping running back Reggie Bush when the Jets go to Miami on Sunday. He’s one of the most dangerous backs in the NFL, but the Jets believe that preparing for the Dolphins’ no-huddle offense and for the hot and humid South Florida weather will be major factors in controlling Bush and the Miami offense.
Defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said on Thursday that the Jets have...Read more »
The Jets’ self-anointed “second-best wide receiver” has decided to focus on being their second-best cornerback behind Darrelle Revis. In his first session with the media in a while, Cromartie smiled when a reporter brought up his training-camp boast and asked if he still entertains thoughts of playing both ways.
“None at all,” Cromartie said. “We have guys healthy, and guys are doing very...Read more »
Darrelle Revis left nothing to interpretation.
“I’m playing Sunday,” he said repeatedly, smiling each time.
The Jets cornerback said he passed the final test in a long series of hurdles en route to getting back on the field.
“Doctors cleared me, so I’ll be playing Sunday,” he said.
For the first time since he suffered a concussion in Week 1, Revis was cleared for contact...Read more »
