Szott Probable

LG Dave Szott is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Raiders, and says he feels good enough to play. Herman Edwards however, is proceeding with caution, and will wait until Saturday before deciding whether or not to activate the veteran.

Szott will get significant time in practice this week, most of which will be on the turf in the bubble, due to the cold weather. It will be a good final test for his knee.

 

DE John Abraham is one Jet who is particularly looking forward to facing the Raiders on Monday. Abraham had to sit out last year's playoff game in Oakland when he got a stomach flu the night before. Abraham took fluids and did everything he could, but was ultimately unable to play.

 

The "Black Hole" in Oakland is considered one of the toughest places to play football in the NFL, but Edwards isn't worried.

 

"To me it's a good deal," Edwards said. "It's what a home venue should be like. How they back their football team, that's great. I think it's an arena that you like playing in. It's fun. If that's not fun, you don't really like football."

 

Edwards continues to say that Wayne Chrebet's comments about not getting the football enough is not an issue, and he does not need to talk to Chrebet about it. Chrebet and offensive coordinator Paul Hackett did meet to discuss the issue. Don't expect anything to change though as both Hackett and Edwards have said that Chad Pennington and his consistency is what's important, not who he's throwing the ball to.

 

WR Santana Moss actually has more of a right to be upset than Chrebet does. Since his five-catch, 111-yard performance against Minnesota, Moss has only averaged two catches a game, for just 10 yards a game. He gets the least amount of plays of any of the Jets three receivers.
