*Damien Woody, Nick Mangold, Kris Jenkins, and Darrelle Revis will all miss Friday's game against the Rams. None of the injuries are considered serious, but there's no reason to risk any possibility of injury considering how important each player is to the team.
*Rams quarterback Marc Bulger expects to play two or three quarters against the Jets on Friday. If Bulger really is playing that long, chances are the Rams will provide him with some talent, particularly on their offensive line, so he doesn't get killed. It will be a good test for the defense, particularly the second stringers who need to show up and quell some of the depth questions people rightfully have. Let's just say, Vernon Gholston sacking Bulger means more than him sacking Kyle Boller, even though Bulger has been known to hold onto the ball for too long.
*Could the Jets be trading Thomas Jones? Mike Lombardi thinks so. It would make a lot of sense, given TJ's sudden change of heart in the offseason regarding his contract. Shonn Greene and Leon Washington have yet to prove they can handle http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifan NFL workload by themselves, but there's considerable reason to believe they can.
It's unlikely the Jets would receive more than a 4th round pick barring a major injury to a team's starting runningback. The team the Jets likely shopped him to was Seattle. The Seahawks do have some receiver depth, so it's possible a swap for a Nate Burleson or Deion Branch could occur, but that's just speculation on my part. A trade of Jones would also allow Danny Woodhead and Jehuu Caulcrick a greater opportunity to make the team. The Jets have used Woodhead a lot in practice, but there probably isn't a roster spot available unless Jones is shipped.
UPDATE: and Cimini both say the rumor is not true. Jones should remain a Jet.
