There are two practices scheduled for today and the Jets are currently on the field for the first session, which began at 8:50 a.m.

The heavens have opened up and it's pouring at the moment, but hey, it's not going to stop these guys from getting the necessary work in apparently.

This afternoon's 4:15 practice is a special teams session.

We'll speak with Rex Ryan at 11:45 a.m. and then be back with our usual updates.

-- Santonio Holmes reported yesterday and looked pretty good.

-- Mark Sanchez is taking more of an active leadership role. 

-- Kris Jenkins returned to practice.
