Pennington is nursing some kind of leg injury. He is wearing a sleeve on the middle of his right leg. Sometimes players where these due to rug burns from artificial surface . . .
For whatever reason, Eric Ainge rarely gets a chance to throw passes in practice. You have to wonder if his problematic pinky is acting up . . .
In the afternoon practice, you saw exactly why the Jets signed Jesse Chatman as a backup running back. The former Charger and Dolphin had a pretty run in the left flat, making several people miss with jitterbug moves. He is very elusive in the open field for a 223-pound back . . .
The Jets added a receiver to the roster on Tuesday by inking former Arizona State wideout Rudy Burgess. He doesn't have great size (5-10, 188), but can run under 4.4 in the forty . . .
LB Jerry Mackey is back in town. He has been on and off the roster, and practice squad, too many times to count over the last couple of years. But one good thing for the Jets is that it doesn't cost much to bring him back. He is from Freeport, which is 15 minutes from Hofstra.
