FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Kerry Rhodes hasn't had a Pro Bowl season, but he thinks more than a few of his defensive teammates have.
The Jets safety, who's played much better of late and regained his starting job after a demotion, is bothered that the NFL's top-ranked defense didn't get much respect in the voting. Rhodes was still a bit annoyed Tuesday that the Jets' lone representative is cornerback Darrelle Revis.
"It gives us something to prove," Rhodes said. "We're the No. 1 defense and we have one guy. There's definitely other deserving guys, but they didn't get in. So we've just got to go out and prove it, prove each week that we're capable of having those guys there and we should have those guys there. We definitely have a chip on our shoulders."
Happy at home
"Well, my wife is just happy that I'm at home," Scott said. "She don't care what I do. She can deal with the noise and the guys being guys. She's like, 'Well, at least I know where my husband is at.' You know how it is. Anti-Tiger."
RB Thomas Jones and FB Tony Richardson were held out of practice to keep them fresh . . . P Steve Weatherford (right hamstring) didn't practice for precautionary reasons, but expects to practice Wednesday . . . CB Donald Strickland (quadriceps) was limited but thinks he'll play Saturday . . . Bengals RB Cedric Benson on the possibility the Jets could be without LB David Harris (ankle): "I don't know how big of an impact he makes on that defense. I'm not a big-names guy or who's playing. I don't even really know who that is."
