Rookie tight end Joel Dreessen is looking more and more like a sixth round steal. He looked good in both the morning and afternoon practices. While he's not great running after the catch, he has very good hands, and decent straight-line speed . . .
Quarterback Brooks Bollinger is quietly having a very solid camp. He threw the best pass of the afternoon practice - a rocket to wideout Eddie Jackson on a skinny post for a touchdown. The Jets have a solid quarterback situation with Chad Pennington, Jay Fiedler and Brooks Bollinger manning the top three positions. And let's not forget rocket-armed Kevin Eakin, who will likely land on the practice squad . . .
Pennington came up limping after a play in the afternoon practice. A lineman seemed to roll up his left ankle. The trainers taped the ankle, and he continued to practice. The tape went all the way up to his knee . . .
With Jonathan Carter (knee) and Wayne Chrebet (hamstring) held out of both practices on Monday, Jerricho Cotchery and Chas Gessner moved up to the third and fourth receiver spots. Gessner made a number of catches, and is making himself very tough to cut. He reminds some of former Denver Broncos wideout Ed McCaffrey . . .
Defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson is practicing with a wrap on his left leg. He seems to be dealing with left knee issue, and this might be one reason why he's had a very quiet camp . . .
Linebacker Kenyatta Wright continues to rehabilitate a leg injury. With the impressive play of rookies Ryan Myers and Dennis Haley, he better get on the practice field soon. Those three seem to be battling for the last linebacker spot . . .
Law watched most of the afternoon practice from the sidelines, but he did participate in some individual drills. Terry Bradway's heart must have skipped a beat when Law slipped on some loose sod . . .
While Australian punter Ben Graham is getting a lot of attention in camp due to his powerful leg, veteran Micah Knorr is also punting the ball very well. The decision of which punter to keep is going to a very difficult one for Jets assistant head coach Mike Westhoff . . .
