--DE John Abraham missed parts of the second half with a sore hamstring and is listed as questionable for the game against the Cowboys. Since Abraham is a speed rusher and hamstrings are tricky injuries that last a while, there is a good chance Abraham won't play or at least be limited this Sunday. If Abraham doesn't play or plays less, second-year DE Bryan Thomas will play more.
--WR Curtis Conway may still be adjusting to the
ball thrown by QB Vinny Testaverde. He dropped three passes Sunday, including a
12-yarder that would have been good for a touchdown in the third quarter. Conway
still led the Jets with five receptions for 70 yards.
Chad Pennington did not play Sunday and 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.
--DE Bryan Thomas played much of
the second half because of John Abraham's sore hamstring and got his first
career sack. Thomas, last year's first-round pick, has been a disappointment
--LB Marvin Jones missed parts of the second and
third quarters because of dehydration but will return to practice this
--WR Wayne Chrebet remained in the receiver rotation
but played primarily on third downs because of a sore knee that kept him out of
practice most of last week. He should return to practice and will play
--K Doug Brien had hit six consecutive field goals
before missing a 42-yarder in the fourth quarter that would have cut the
Patriot's lead to just four points.
--DT Chester McGlockton got his first sack of the season and played well once again. His
playing time should increase in the rotation of tackles. It's a tough situation
because the Jets want to play rookie Dewayne Robertson as much as possible - he
also played well after a slow start in the first two games. Do the Jets play the
veteran over the younger player in a losing season?
