Found December 14, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
After the Seattle Seahawks released wide receiver Braylon Edwards, head coach Pete Carroll said they believed he wouldn’t be able to play for three weeks because of a hamstring injury. New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan doesn’t agree with Carroll. “Obviously, we felt different,” Ryan said, via the Newark Star Ledger. “He passed the physical, he’s cleared to practice,” added Ryan. “I’m optimistic he’ll be able to play on Monday but I’ll learn on our trainers and doctors. I’ll say this about Braylon — he’s extremely happy to be here, I’ve seen him in the locker room, he’s hugging guys, he’s going crazy. I was happy to see him despite the obvious comment.” I’m sure the Jets will do whatever they can to make sure Edwards plays on Monday night, since they’re somehow still in the AFC playoff race.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counte

Braylon Edwards back “home” with the Jets

The Jets have picked up their former wideout, Braylon Edwards off of waivers. Remember it was just last week that Braylon referred to Jets management as “idiots” for the way they’ve handled QB Mark Sanchez. Apparently the Jets are very forgiving and were trying to trade for Edwards a few weeks before the Seahawks cut him. Two seasons ago Sanchez and Edwards had great chemistry...

Edwards optimistic he’ll play against Titans

As Braylon Edwards rejoices a reunion with quarterback Mark Sanchez, the wideout's balky hamstring might be a cause for concern leading up to the Jets' Monday Night Showdown against the Tennessee Titans.

5 Replacements for Rex Ryan, Jets

The New York Jets may be on their way to making a playoff push but don’t be fooled. This season is by far the most frustrating and most disappointing of Rex Ryan’s tenure as Head Coach. After thirteen weeks of nailbiters and fumbles, it is clear New York is in need of a coaching change (to say the least). Woody Johnson would do his team a favor by firing Ryan. A lot has changed...

Rex Ryan thrilled with Edwards' return

While Braylon Edwards garners attention for his freakish athleticism and highlight reel catches, it's the veteran wide receiver's blocking skills that have Rex Ryan excited the most.

Sanchez, Jets see 'comfort level' with Edwards

Braylon Edwards was pretty good in 2010, and so was Mark Sanchez. The two have pretty much stunk since. Edwards and Sanchez, who connected on 62 passes, eight touchdowns and more than 40 first downs in the New York Jets' 2010 campaign, were reunited this week after an odd sequence of events."We have a good chemistry together," Sanchez said Tuesday, via the Star-Ledger...

Jets focusing on struggling Titans, not playoffs

Rex Ryan is taking nothing for granted, not the way this season has gone for the New York Jets. The Jets still have hope that a favorable schedule will give them a chance at the playoffs even after a 3-6 start. Ryan, though, is taking it one game at a time, beginning with the woeful Tennessee Titans on Monday night. ''I know we have three games left in the regular season...

Ryan changes mind about Tebow's role

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan flip-flopped on Tim Tebow's possible role in Monday night's game against the Tennessee Titans. Ryan told reporters Friday that Tebow may serve as a personal protector on punts and might see action in the Wildcat formation on offense. Earlier in the week, Ryan said Tebow would not perform those functions. Ryan changed his mind after watching...

Fantasy Football: Week 15 Injury Report

As always, if the player is not mentioned here, I have no doubt he’ll be out there on Sunday/Monday. Here’s the skinny on the rest of the Week 15 question marks: Antonio Brown (P): He’s still not 100% back since returning from a high ankle sprain, but he’ll be out there and should be productive. Ray Lewis (O): He’s close, but team doctors want him to sit one more week...

The Jets need change.. even with a chance still to make the playoffs

Sports.com may report that  New York still has a chance, it’s not likely to happen, [...]

Tebow won't run wildcat for Jets

Tim Tebow's days of running the New York Jets' wildcat-style offense appear over for now. Rex Ryan said Thursday that the backup quarterback will be active Monday night at Tennessee, but will likely not run the wildcat or participate as the punt protector on special teams. Tebow has not played in the Jets' last three games while dealing with two broken ribs, sustained...

Making sense of Rex Ryan's backup quarterback quandary

Tim Tebow hasn't been healthy enough to see the field for a month, yet New York Jets coach Rex Ryan insists Tebow remains the No. 2 quarterback. Meanwhile, Greg McElroy, Gang Green's third-stringer, is the only quarterback not named Mark Sanchez to run New York's offense in a regular season game this year. The healthy and capable McElroy replaced Sanchez in the second...
