Thursday Update

Jets All-Pro defensive end John Abraham was charged with drunken driving after he drove his sports utility vehicle into a fire hydrant and lightpole in Nassau County. <p>

"Probably the best thing about this was that nobody was hurt," said Herman Edwards.

Radio and television reports have stated that there were two other passengers in the car, neither of which was injured.

Edwards said that the league will get Abraham the proper help. However the NFL's punishment most likely will not include a suspension, according to the head coach.

"I don't think there is a suspension at this point," said Edwards who has his own disciplinary plans for his DE when he returns to the team. "I know what I am going to do. I am not going to discuss that."

Obviously the depleted Jets aren't going to suspend their best player.

Abraham will return home to South Carolina this weekend to spend time with his mother, and will return to the Jets on Monday. He will play against the Bills.

The Jets released a statement from Abraham this afternoon.

"I apologize to my family, my teammates, the coaching staff, and the entire New York Jets organization for my actions," said Abraham. "I am embarrassed by this situation, and I will learn from this."
