Greene: I'm OK
Jets RB Shonn Greene, who finished with 76 yards on 19 carries, took a hit to the head in the fourth quarter and left the game. He didn't return although he did not have a concussion.
"I'm OK," he said after the Jets' 27-11 victory. "I got dinged up a little bit. As I started going toward the sideline, I started feeling weird. I had to go through [a concussion] evaluation. I could've come back, but we were ahead in the fourth quarter and it would not have made sense."
TE Dustin Keller also took a hit to the head when he landed hard after trying (and failing) to leap over a Buffalo defender in the second quarter. He returned to the game in the second half. NT Sione Pouha left briefly in the second half with an apparent foot injury, but also returned.
Smith and Maybin
Much of the pregame talk centered on the possible impact former Jet Brad Smith and former Bill Aaron Maybin might have for their new teams.
As it turned out, not much.
Smith averaged 19 yards on four kickoff returns, and wasn't used as a Wildcat quarterback. Maybin was credited with one hit on Buffalo's Ryan Fitzpatrick. The pass rusher who has resurrected his career with the Jets had no sacks or tackles.
Smith's former teammate and close friend, Eric Smith, tackled him on his first return.
"It was great to see Brad," Eric Smith said with a smile. "I'm mad I didn't get to hit him a little harder but it was good to see him."
DE Mike DeVito (knee) warmed up before the game and took on coach Rex Ryan in a one-on-one drill, but was scratched for the second straight game. Ryan indicated he believes DeVito will be ready for the New England game on Sunday. Marcus Dixon started in DeVito's place against the Bills. ... TE Josh Baker had a 5-yard reception in the second quarter, his first NFL catch, while filling in for Keller.

Florham Park, N.J. - The question most commonly asked by reporters this week has been, "What's the biggest difference between where this Jets team is now as opposed to where they were before the last game against the Patriots?" A simple question gets a simple answer, the play of the offensive line is easily the biggest difference. Of course that has a lot to do with...

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Remember that queasy feeling Jets fans would get last season when their team made it into the red zone? Remember the way eyes used to roll and negative tweets used to flow as everyone feared that the offense again would flame out near the goal line?
Don’t ask Plaxico Burress about Eli Manning.
The wide receiver bristled when questioned about his former quarterback in the Jets locker room, twice telling a reporter that he wouldn’t comment on Manning’s recent stretch of great play.
“I’m not talking about any of that,” Burress said, ...
Best quote? When asked what would Sanchez say about his not getting a role in Sandler’s movie?
"They wanted the A team … not the B team!"
Just to be clear, this was something that Ryan did over the summer … not in-season …
FLORHAM PARK–By all accounts the Jets are ready to roll for Sunday’s match-up against the Patriots. Shonn Greene who suffered both a head and groin injury against the Bills said he’s fine and ready to go. He looked relaxed and said he’s totally comfortable with where things are at offensively, “Knowing we’re finally back to the ground and pound.”
The question of whether...
With the Jets playing the most important game of the year Sunday, Plaxico Burress sat out of practice today.

Burress has been dealing with a back issue that nearly kept him out of the game against the Bills last week. Jets coach Rex Ryan said Wednesday he thought Burress could play Sunday against the Patriots.

Since week 5 both the New York Jets and the New England Patriots have been trending in opposite directions. It was then we saw the Patriots move to 4-1 and the Jets fall to 2-3 after the pats hung 30 points on the Jets defense to beat Rex and his band of talkers by 9.
After getting to 13 straight games with at least 30 points or more Brady’s Bunch has been having trouble reaching...
