Practice Notes: Jets banged up/What about Kendall?

The Jets are a banged up team. <p>

They had a number of players sit out the Tuesday afternoon practice. None of the injuries appears to be serious. Here is the list:

Center Curt McGill - knee

Defensive tackle Josh Evans - knee

Defensive end Kevin Fales - knee

Linebacker Eric Barton - hamstring

Linebacker Jonathan Vilma - calf

Wide receiver Ken-Yon Rambo - hamstring

Wide receiver Lawrence Hamilton - hamstring

Notes: Former Pittsburgh Steelers great Terry Bradshaw and former Jets defensive end Mark Gastineau were in attendence at the afternoon practice . . .Linebacker Sam Cowart had an excellent day of practice, making several nice plays . . .Filling in for Eric Barton at weakside linebacker was Jason Glenn, and he had a very good day in pass coverage . . .Center Jonathan Goodwin returned for the afternoon practice and resumed his role as backup center. He missed three practices attending a funeral and was sorely missed. With third-string center Curt McGill injured, the team had to use several players with no background at center at the position, and the results were disastrous with a myriad of fumbled snaps . . .With the wide receivers Ken-Yon Rambo and Lawrence Hamilton hurt, former CFL star Matt Dominguez has emerged as the strong candidate for the fifth wide receiver spot. He had an excellent day of practice with three nice grabs . . .Former Jets guard Dave Szott is now working part-time with the team in player development and is spending time tutoring Brandon Moore . . .With the Jets lack of depth on the offensive line, you have to wonder if they are going to attempt to sign former Arizona Cardinals center Pete Kendall. He was released on Monday. JC asked Terry Bradway, through a spokesman, if the team is interested, and the response was, "Why would we tell the media if we were interested in a player." This sounds like interest to us. Kendall is from Marshfield, Mass., so it might be appealing for him to come back to the Northeast.
