Head coach Rex Ryan believes wide receiver Braylon Edwards and quarterback Tim Tebow will be available when the New York Jets play at the Tennessee Titans on Monday night. Edwards, signed this week, is refamiliarizing himself with the playbook while also dealing with a sore knee. "How much he'll play, we’ll see, but I'm optimistic he'll be ready for Monday night," Ryan said Saturday. "We're not going to put specific play numbers on him, or whatever, we'll just see how he progresses. Right now, I feel like he's getting better each day." While Edwards returns to the Jets, the playbook has changed under new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. "It really is a brand new system for Braylon," Ryan said. "But you are exactly right, he is familiar with Mark (Sanchez). There is no question about it. "He definitely brings back that mentality as a blocker and everything else that we certainly appreciate. Really, it's just the overall thing that we've been kind of banged up at the receiver spot. We were very familiar with Braylon and his attributes that he brings to the table. He's a smart guy and obviously, very competitive. I absolutely do love the way he blocks." After saying on Thursday that Tebow was unlikely to see action in Wildcat formations or as the personal protector on the punt team due to his rib injury, Ryan said on Friday that he could end up doing both against the Titans. "I think he practiced well again today, so he looks good and he'll be ready to go on Monday," Ryan said Saturday.
