The one to watch is Elijah Moore, their best offensive player. The team remains hopeful he can play. This is not related to the quad injury he suffered in training camp, per Robert Saleh. They're banged up at running back. With Michael Carter on IR and Tevin Coleman in the concussion protocol, Ty Johnson could be the RB1 on Sunday. That would leave Austin Walter and La'Mical Perine as the backups.

The Jets remain hopeful that LT Mekhi Becton (knee) will play again this season, but his return to practice won't happen this week. He hasn't had a setback, per Robert Saleh, who said, "It's just that everyone is different in terms of how they heal. Hopefully, we can get something going soon." Becton is 11 weeks removed from surgery; it was an 8-week timetable. Saleh said he always felt 8 weeks was on the low side, considering the type of injury.

Robert Saleh agreed with C.J. Mosley's no-respect rant: "As an organization, we have to find a way to go change it. No one is going to give it to us. No one is going to give us calls. No one is going to feel sorry for us. The organization has been through a lot these last 10 years. It's not something that's easy to fix… We're going to get this thing flipped. We're going to change the narrative and earn the respect we deserve." He sees Super Bowl runs in "3 or 4 years."

Hour 3: Minshew Mania (again)

Jets CB Bryce Hall says that the Jets did not prepare for Garnder Minshew. How surprising is it to hear that? Rex Ryan joins to explain why this is the most important off-season in Jets history. Plus, Monday Night Football's Brian Griese previews the game, and talks about his Michigan Wolverines making the CFP

The Jets are signing PK Eddy Pineiro, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. This comes one day after Alex Kessman, in his NFL debut, missed two PATs. Pineiro hasn't kicked in a game since 2019 with the Bears. He made 23 of 28 FGs and 27 of 29 PATs. His long was 53. Pineiro will be the Jets' third kicker this season and their eighth since 2017.

Analysis: Davis re-injured his groin. Mims an afterthought until garbage time. Walter, a hero last week in Houston, was a non-factor.

The bright spot for the Jets was QB Zach Wilson. Robert Saleh called it "by far his best game in terms of just working progressions and playing within the system." Saleh said Wilson was "ready to have an explosive game," but the offense had limited plays in the second half. Wilson said "there were definitely improvements." He said the next step is finding balance between using his playmaking ability and staying within the offense.

New PK Alex Kessman probably kicked his way off the team, missing two PATs. Robert Saleh hinted another change is coming, saying, "We have someone else in the building. We'll just keep going until something works." He didn't explain what he meant by "someone else in the building." Kessman offered no excuses, saying, "I didn't do my job today, plain and simple … I'm not going to let two kicks define me."

Jets injury report: WR Corey Davis re-injured his groin. He's day to day. RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif left with an ankle injury. CB Michael Carter II is in the concussion protocol.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets inactives: DT Sheldon Rankins (injured), TE Trevon Wesco (injured), RB La'Mical Perine, OT Isaiah Williams, DE Tim Ward, CB Rachad Wildgoose and S Jarrod Wilson.

No surprise here: The Jets have changed kickers, signing rookie Alex Kessman from the practice squad and cutting Matt Ammendola. There was an open competition in practice, the result of Ammendola's recent struggles. The Jets can't get this kicking this right. Kessman is their seventh kicker since 2017.
