Dave Szott gone for the year

Twelve-year NFL veteran guard and North Jersey native Dave Szott blew his knee out at mini-camp today. We will have more on this story later.

Szott was happy to play with the Jets so he could spend more time with his son.

Szott's seven-year-old son Shane has cerebral palsy. He is confined to a wheelchair and communicates through a touch-screen computer. "It's a tremendous load off of my family. It allows me to continue to play and do something I love to do and feel good about what I'm doing — and I'm not putting undue pressure or strain at home."
