Key notes from Jets injury report: DID NOT PRACTICE — CB Darryl Roberts (calf); LIMITED — OT Kelvin Beachum (ankle) and RT Chuma Edoga (ankle). Analysis: Edoga returned to practice after missing a day, so it looks like he and Beachum will be good to go against the Raiders. Roberts is expected to miss his third straight game.

Ryan Griffin's "sticky hands" TD celebration last Sunday prompted a sports-apparel company to produce these T-shirts. When Griffin spiked the ball, it got "stuck" to his hand. No, it wasn't because of stickum; it was a spoof based on the Madden video game. He got the idea from former UConn teammate Steve Brown.

Rookie CB Bless Austin received praise from coach Adam Gase, who said: "He was driving us nuts on the scout team. When you're making receivers angry ... you know he's got something to him." Austin, who spent the first eight games on the NFI list as he recovered from his second ACL surgery, has held up well in two starts. He has allowed only six catches for 59 yards as the closest defender, per NFL Next Gen Stats.

Key notes from the Jets' injury report: DID NOT PRACTICE — RT Chuma Edoga (ankle), CB Darryl Roberts (calf); LIMITED — LT Kelvin Beachum (ankle) and LB Brandon Copeland (hip/thumb). Analysis: Edoga is day-to-day. Frankly, it wouldn't be the worst thing if he doesn't play. Brandon Shell probably is a better all-around player. Doesn't look good for Roberts. The defense has been getting by with Arthur Maulet and rookie Bless Austin at corner, but they will be tested by Raiders QB Derek Carr.

Jets S Jamal Adams predicted he will break the NFL's single-season record for most sacks by a DB. "If you're asking, am I going to beat the record? Yes, I will beat the record," he said. "That's something I will get." Adams has six sacks. The record is eight, set by former Cards S Adrian Wilson.

Jets' Bell rips NFL for 'random' HGH blood tests

Injured WR Quincy Enunwa, who spoke to the New York Post at a charity event on Tuesday night, declined to elaborate on his criticism of the team last week on Twitter. Enunwa, recovering from neck surgery, said, "I'm just working my way back. I plan to do whatever my body allows me to do. For me, it's about going back out there and doing what I can to get back (on the field)." In his Twitter rant against the Jets, he said he had a 50/50 chance of playing again.

The post-Jacksonville convo between QB Sam Darnold and Adam Gase has generated attention as a potential turning point. Gase welcomed Darnold's assertiveness, saying it was the "right time" for the young QB to express his opinions on the pros and cons of the offense. Darnold said he spoke up because of his comfort level with Gase and the offense, saying "it was important for that conversation to happen." Since then, his play has improved.

Le'Veon Bell played 75% and 56% of the snaps in the last two games, his lowest numbers of the season. Why? Three reasons, per Adam Gase: They don't want to be predictable. The other RBs "deserve" to play. They want to keep him fresh. Said Gase: "We want to make sure we have a strong, 16-game season from him." Smart move, especially since Bilal Powell has provided a spark as a change-up off the bench.

Jets injury report: This week's spotlight will be on OTs Kelvin Beachum (ankle) and Chuma Edoga (ankle/knee). Edoga had an MRI and is day-to-day. Adam Gase said he's "optimistic" that Edoga can play against Oakland. Beachum aggravated a previous injury, but it's not as bad as the first one. He finished the game and should be able to practice this week.

Jets injury report: RT Chuma Edoga is having tests Monday on an ankle injury that occurred in the first half. He was replaced by Brandon Shell. The offensive line is getting decimated: Ryan Kalil (IR), Brian Winters (IR) and Kelechi Osemele (surgery/cut). They've already started six different combos.

S Jamal Adams has six sacks, a new single-season team record for DBs. All six have come in the last three games. "The picks aren't coming my way, so I thought I'd do something different," he said. He's two shy of the NFL record for a DB.
