Analysis

There's no surprise with Montee Ball not practicing. He could be out as long as a month. Thompson apparently tweaked his knee vs the Arizona Cardinals, before he rushed for his touchdown. Obviously, it wasn't bothering him too bad and this is simply a precautionary move. Expect to see a healthy dose of him on Sunday.

Eric Decker surely hopes that his hamstring will progress between today and Sunday, so that he can make John Elway regret letting him walk. Broncos fans have largely forgotten about him with the emergence of Emmanuel Sanders, who has been an absolute revelation.

The Jets need all hands on deck if they hope to even stop this game from being an utter blowout. Giacomini's health is one to monitor moving forward.
