Cowart and Strait update

Beware of Jets players who are listed as probable.

Usually "probable" means a player is most likely to play.

But two Jets listed as "probable" this week, linebacker Sam Cowart (knee) and cornerback Derrick Strait (foot) will be inactive for the Jets game in Buffalo on Sunday. In fact, neither player made the trip. The both stayed back for treatment.

Jets coach Herman Edwards admitted recently that "probable" to him means there is a 50-50 chance a player will play. In the NFL, "probable" is supposed mean their is a 75 percent chance a player will play.
