-CB Ray Mickens had a rough time replacing Donnie Abraham after Abraham got hurt last week against Miami and struggled at times against the Patriots. His pass interference penalty - a mistake that always irks coach Herman Edwards - put the Patriots at the 1 and led to a Tom Brady touchdown run that gave New England the lead. Mickens - generously listed at 5-foot-8 - is a very competent nickel back but will continue to get picked on at the corner. The only other option the Jets is Jamie Henderson, an inexperienced third-year player who is taking Mickens' place at the nickel.
--QB Vinny Testaverde threw for 264 yards
to move past Johnny Unitas for eighth place on the all-time passing list with
40,300 yards. He needs 252 yards to pas Joe Montana to move into seventh
--RB Curtis Martin's struggles will have to be more
heavily scrutinized by the Jets now. Martin rushed for just 53 yards on 15
carries and has just 133 yards in three games this season. The offensive line
has been a problem but Martin may indeed be slowing down at age
--QB Chad Pennington is expected to miss at least another
six weeks with a fractured and dislocated left wrist. Pennington is shooting for
a return by the Nov. 9 game at Oakland but realistically, his recovery will take
at least a few weeks longer than that.
--CB Donnie Abraham did
not play because of a fractured right shoulder and is expected to miss at least
seven more weeks.
