Found November 02, 2011 on The Jets Blog:
The New York Jets have announced the signing of WR Michael Campbell back to the practice squad after about a week’s absence.  The team placed WR Scotty McKnight on practice squad injured reserve with a torn ACL in his left knee. It will be interesting to see what the team does with Scotty McKnight long-term … do they foresee a Danny Woodhead role for him down the road?  Woodhead of course wasn’t the right fit for the team at the time, their between the tackles running didn’t support his skillset … something that Brady’s spread offense is much better suited at doing. Kerley seems to be making a strong statement that he’ll be the slot receiver for many years to come, so where does McKnight fit?  Will he be able to carve out a role on specials in 2012?  That seems to be where he’d need to start.

Recent years have seen Brett Favre outduel J.P. Losman in a mistake-filled 2008 bit of nightmare fuel...
