Jets Notebook <p>
Jets weakside linebacker Sam Cowart will miss this week's game with a deep thigh bruise and a knee strain.
Jets weakside linebacker Sam Cowart
will miss this week's game with a deep thigh bruise and a knee strain. The combination of those two injuries make it tough for him to run effectively. So the Jets will start Jason Glenn
in Cowart's place. Glenn took over for Cowart last week after the first quarter, and proceeded to lead the Jets in tackles. He also had an impressive pass defensed. However, his performance was considered just average by the defensive coaches. He was a culprit in the team's poor run defense, and he needs to improve. These last few games are important to Glenn. He must show he has starting potential at linebacker, because at his salary, they need him to be more than a role player . . .
Good news for wide receiver Jonathan Carter. His knee injury isn't as serious as originally thought, and he won't need surgery, just rest and rehabiliation. He should be healthy by the team's spring minicamp . . .
The Jets signed kick returner Kenyon Rambo yesterday, but he will not return kicks this Sunday. The team will go with Lamont Jordan instead. They want to give him more time to get acclimated to the system . . .
The big buzz today in the press room was about John Abraham's potential move to linebacker next year. Neither Herman Edwards or John Abraham would comment on the topic.
