Jets/Texans preseason opener - GAMEDAY THREAD
 
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.”

Preview of Monday night's game with Jets and Texans
 
Quote:

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."

No, Schaub will start, probably play one or two series, then Leinheart until the 4th quarter, and our new draft choice probably gets a series or two in the 4th quarter.

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!
