Early Practice Notes
FLORHAM PARK, NJ – With the amount of money, $101 million to be exact, the Jets had riding the stationary bike at the start of practice, you’d swear they signed Lance Armstrong to a contract. However it was Darrelle Revis (hamstring) and Nick Mangold (shoulder), not the seven-time Tour De France champion, who stayed in stride side-by-side for the duration of practice.
Revis has already been ruled out for this Sunday night’s game against the Miami Dolphins (2-0) with the possibility of missing the following week’s game at Buffalo. No one, including Revis, wants the All-Pro corner to rush back after his 37-day holdout from training camp.
“I’m just going to take my time and get back to 100 percent and then I’ll be playing,” he said. “I’m progressing every day and [the hamstring] is getting better every day.”
As for Mangold, this is the second straight day he did not participate in practice with a shoulder injury suffered in last week’s victory over New England. The severity of the injury is still gray, however when the injury reports are released later on today, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on his status for Miami.
Jason Taylor, who was limited in practice yesterday, participated in early team drills before the media were asked to leave the practice field. Despite early participation, Taylor is still sporting the Barry Bonds-like protective armor on his left arm. When asked about his status for facing his former team, Taylor said “I’ll be there Sunday. As far as how great it will be, I don’t know.”
