A day after a 20-player brawl highlighted a chippy practice, Jets coach Rex Ryan had his players run a series of sprints Tuesday as punishment for a few minor scuffles on the field. With most of the media off to the side speaking with team owner Woody Johnson, a few players got into it and Ryan immediately called the team together. He shouted at his players and then had them run gassers - sprints from sideline to sideline - for at least 10 minutes. Ryan watched as his players did each lap, and then spoke to his team again in a raised tone before resuming practice. The Jets have one more day of practice in Cortland before their preseason opener Friday at Cincinnati.
