Nothing but Jets
New York Jets news, commentary and insider info from beat writer Kimberley A. Martin.
Geno Smith's job as the Jets' starting quarterback seems to be on the line every week. Rex Ryan refuses to name him the starter for the rest of the season. After each interception Smith throws, a host of fans clamor for backup Matt Simms to enter the game.
But is the heavy scrutiny warranted?

Barring a setback, it appears Stephen Hill (concussion) will face the Falcons.
The Jets receiver reportedly practiced Saturday without his red non-contact pinnie and is listed as probable for the Jets Monday Night Football game against the Falcons.
As expected, veteran receiver Santonio Holmes (hamstring) is out. So, too, are rookie cornerback Dee Milliner (hamstring) and rookie left...Read more »
Mike Goodson officially is a Jet.
The running back was moved to the active roster on Saturday after completing his four-game suspension for an offseason arrest. The Jets are anxious to see Goodson showcase his speed on the field, but how much work he’ll get Monday night against the Falcons remains to be seen.
Goodson – who already was being eased into the flow of things – suffered hamstring...Read more »
In an expected move, Falcons coach Mike Smith has ruled out running back Steven Jackson for Monday night's game against the Jets.
Jackson hasn't played since Week 2 because of a hamstring injury and did not practice all week.
Earlier in the week, the Falcons (1-3) ruled out left tackle Sam Baker (knee) and linebacker Akeem Dent (sprained right ankle) for the game....Read more »
Rex Ryan confirmed Friday that a tight hamstring kept Mike Goodson out of practice and off to the side with trainers. But the Jets coach said he wasn’t “overly concerned” by the injury.
“He was a little tight today and he went with the trainers for a while,” Ryan said, when asked about Goodson spending time in the rehab area during practice. “The thing about Mike is, like we’ve said, we’ll...Read more »
Even with Mark Sanchez sitting on the injured reserve list, the Jets’ quarterback situation still is an open question unless rookie starter Geno Smith gets a grip on the turnover situation. Smith has been responsible for 11 turnovers through four games, including eight interceptions.
The quarterback competition in training camp only was resolved by the shoulder injury to Sanchez, not by their...Read more »
Let the games(manship) begin.
Usually it’s the Patriots who stockpile tight ends. But this time, the Jets were able to add a former Patriot to their arsenal Friday – Zach Sudfeld.
The 6-7 tight end was claimed off waivers by the Jets a day after his release from New England. In a corresponding move, the Jets waived linebacker Scott Solomon.
And as luck would have it, the Jets and...Read more »
For the second straight day, Stephen Hill was on the practice field. But this time, the Jets second-year wideout was wearing a red non-contact pinnie and shells.
It’s a step in the right direction for Hill, who suffered a concussion in the first quarter of Sunday’s game in Tennessee. With Santonio Holmes (hamstring) expected to be ruled out for Monday night’s game in Atlanta, the Jets and...Read more »
One day after complaining about getting only one pass reception in the Jets’ loss at Tennessee, wide receiver Santonio Holmes took to Twitter to suggest his comments were misinterpreted by that ever-present enemy: the New York-New Jersey media.
For the record, Holmes said on Thursday, “I can’t throw it to myself and catch it, otherwise I would.” Given a chance to express his thoughts on rookie...Read more »
As the cameras descended upon Quinton Coples, the Jets outside linebacker flashed his boyish grin.
“I got a letter,” he said, confirming that he had been fined by the NFL for his joint hit on Titans quarterback Jake Locker last week. “The league felt like it was a personal foul or inappropriate hit. But one thing about it, it’s up for debate. So I’m going to appeal it and we’ll go forward...Read more »
