The Day After; New York Jets

News and notes on the New York Jets.

--DT Dewayne Robertson was benched for most of the second half in favor of veteran Chester McGlockton. Robertson was solid at the beginning of training camp, regressed, but then showed some decent pressure on the quarterback in the season opener. If his rollercoaster of a rookie year continues -- and the Jets' 30th ranked run defense doesn't improve -- the Jets could use McGlockton even more.
    --DT Chester McGlockton played much more than the original 20-25 plays predicted by the Jets coaching staff. That playing time will likely increase as the Jets desperately need to improve their run defense and rookie Dewayne Robertson has been inconsistent.
    --WR Wayne Chrebet's seven receptions moved him into sole possession of second place for career receptions as a Jet (518). Chrebet also went past Al Toon as the third-leading receiver in Jets history (6,695).
    --CB Donnie Abraham will have an MRI on his right shoulder taken and the Jets hope to have the results by Tuesday morning. Abraham sustained the injury while hitting Jay Fiedler at the goal line on his touchdown run. The Jets acknowledge that Abraham could miss some time and that the injury may even require surgery. Ray Mickens would start in Abraham's place and Jamie Henderson would also get more playing time.
    --CB Ray Mickens will probably start if Donnie Abraham's shoulder injury is serious. The Dolphins went after Mickens as soon as he entered the game for Abraham in the second quarter and didn't play exceptionally well. Mickens has always been a solid defender and is an important part of the Jets' nickel package.
