Chrebet Unhappy

In uncharacteristic fashion, Wayne Chrebet complained to the New York Times that he is unhappy with his reduced role in the offense.

Chrebet specifically called out offensive coordinator Paul Hackett for removing plays that feature him as the go-to receiver, and for being difficult to communicate with. Actually, Chrebet said communicating with Hackett is akin to talking to a wall. 


Herman Edwards downplayed the issue today, saying it did not warrant him speaking privately with his veteran receiver. Edwards explained that the offense is designed for the quarterback to be productive and he and Hackett are less concerned with who's making the catches.


Guard Dave Szott has been upgraded to probable for the Oakland game Monday night, and if he is activated, he will rotate with J.P. Machado. Edwards said he will speak to the veteran guard, and to his training staff, and make sure Szott is healthy enough to play, before activating him.


Defensive End Bryan Thomas was inactive for Sunday's game against Buffalo because the team wanted an extra defensive back for the game, and activated CB Andrew Davison instead. Mike Westhoff has been very high on the special teams play of LB Khary Campbell, and with him on the active roster, there is one less spot for Thomas to make. The Jets have said Thomas' playing time will not increase until he puts enough weight back on.


Full back Richie Anderson is questionable with a left ankle sprain.
