not that he was going to play much anyway
Jets’ Burress has sprain, won’t play vs. Texans

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP)—It’s a no go for Plaxico Burress(notes) in the New York Jets’ preseason opener.

An MRI on Friday revealed that the wide receiver has a sprained left ankle, and he won’t play against the Texans on Monday or even fly with the team to Houston.

“They think the altitude when you fly there, that that can increase swelling,” coach Rex Ryan said. “We’re trying to get Plaxico at 100 percent, so what we’ll do is he’ll come out (next) Wednesday, we assume he will be 100 percent then if we back off him completely now.”

HOUSTON (AP) - The return of Plaxico Burress will have to wait. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has work to do with his other receivers anyway when New York opens the preseason against Houston on Monday night.

The Texans, meanwhile, are eager to see how well they've learned Wade Phillips' new 3-4 defensive scheme. Houston's defense can only improve after ranking last against the pass last season (267.5 yards per game), the main culprit in a 6-10 record.

Monday's game would've been notable for the resurfacing of Burress, who signed with the Jets on July 31 after serving a 20-month prison sentence on a gun charge. But Burress won't even make the trip to Texas after spraining his left ankle in practice last week.

The other stars on both teams aren't expected to see much action, either.

Jets Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold will not travel, either, after hurting his neck Thursday, and Arian Foster, the NFL's leading rusher in 2010, is also not expected to see action because of a hamstring strain.

In his limited time Monday, Sanchez can focus on building chemistry with free-agent pickup Derrick Mason, who was brought in to essentially replace Jerricho Cotchery, who was cut.

New York also lost Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith in free agency, but re-signed go-to receiver Santonio Holmes.

"I'm well prepared. I think this team has the potential to surpass what we did last year," Sanchez said, "but it starts with this first game."

I'm pretty sure it's blue jersey's for all home games, except Liberly White day against the Colts, and Battle Red day against the Jags.

Preseason if just fun time for me. I don't get caught up in this "we must win" mentality. I go to see the guys practice, knowing that over half will be cut before Sept. I also go to see friends, both at our tailgate, and my seat buddies in section 116. Some of us have been together since 2002, and it's fun to see the dedicated one's return every year. At 10 or so tonight I just wanna go home knowing we got through this game with NO major injuries!

According to TC's blog the Jets will be playing their one's for the entire 1st quarter. If Kubiak sticks to his 10-12 snaps it might get ugly. IMO, I'd rather keep our starters heathy than taking a chance on injuries by keeping them in that long. Who cares if we win or not

Thorn

By the 3rd preseason game, they will be playing the starters for the whole first half if they follow their history. That makes the half time score of that particular game the only score in preseason that might tell you anything at all.

I agree 100%...I really do.

The only reason why in this 1 instance I would want the Texans to look across that sideline and send a message by keeping our starters in there as long as they do is I am so effing tired of coach Stay Puff and his tramp stamp or whatever the eff he got tatted on him and I still want payback for how he repeadetly calls the Texans bitches publicly (albeit deservedly so sometimes....)

So while I agree, I also what to see some backbone and a middle finger to the Jets even though I know it's stupid in pre season.

So please, I know it's stupid on my end....maybe just too long without football and I want to take the kids gloves off right away, but still, so tired of the Jits.

Re-watched the failed Jacoby Jones pass play on 2nd down.

Schaub is pumping the ball, slapping it in the off-hand.

Which means he's not comfortable and not well-timed yet. He comes off field and he looks disgusted. He ought to be, too. 2 out of three passes he has mis-judged where his WR is at and where he (Schaub) should put it.

I was afraid of this. I watched the Cowboy game the other night to see how their OLBs played.

Whomever is playing center for us, tried to help out the left guard and then got seriously *****-slapped and left standing still on the side of the highway.

Was that our starter, or another guy getting reps at Center right now?

He needs his ass chewed. Leinart and Townsel were going to hit that slant and maybe even score a TD on that play.

So far, I'm really OK with Matt Leinart as a backup QB. He had two good throws, one poor throw, and an iffy throw to Townsel that I think was going to be a big gain had it not been for the center blowing the block.
