The Jets' final practice before leaving for San Diego later Friday afternoon was well-attended and the team appears to be heading to the West Coast without much of an injury issue.

The players who have been dealing with health issues this week were all on the field and working in the field house: Thomas Jones, Bart Scott, David Harris and Donald Strickland. They even had back-back-backup quarterback Erik Ainge back in the mix; he had missed Thursday's practice with an illness.

We have locker room access a little later Friday at around 11:15, so check back during or after your lunch break to get the final words from the Jets before they fly west.
