We won't know the full details of who did what until a little later, but Brad Smith (groin) was out on the practice field during the 30-minute media window.

Smith, their versatile wide receiver/kick returner, didn't appear to be going full tilt, though. So his status probably won't be determined until much later in the week.

Linebacker Jason Taylor wasn't practicing and was dressed in a sweat suit. He mostly stood off to the side watching his teammates go through their various drills. Ryan has given Taylor a day of early in the week to keep him fresh, which is the same thing he was doing with running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

But Tomlinson was practicing today, so it's unclear what's happening with Taylor. More to come when we speak with Rex Ryan in about an hour.
