Vrentas: Jets Tweets Tues 8/28
Jenny Vrentas @JennyVrentas
Sparano says Sanchez's passes have come out in good rhythm, with good velocity. Also making good decisions.
Sparano gushes about three throws Tebow made in Sun night's game. Says the stats don't tell the story of the progress he's made.
For the record, Sparano says, "We want TDs, not field goals." Asks us to put that in the headlines. Well played, sir.
Sparano + Rex had the "long discussion" abt how to use/roll out WC-esque plays soon after he was hired, and again after getting Tebow.
Sparano said he was "not interested" in putting WC on film in preseason and giving teams a month to prepare. #nyj
RT @ConorTOrr: Slauson said he's a believer in Wayne and hopes things can work out in the future. #nyj
Sparano says "I wasn't disappointed at all." Points to positives: Run game, said 11pct of plays called were explosive plays. #nyj
Bell's knee injury was a bone bruise. Said he did everything today, could have played Sun if in regular season. #nyj
Harris said he did some running + cutting today. It's a sprain, not the high ankle kind. #nyj
Folk said he feels like he's kicking the best he has as a Jet. Said offseason helped get timing down w/snapper and holder. #nyj
Team says Moore's procedure was scheduled. It was not something that came up. #nyj

Jets' Brandon Moore resting after 'minor procedure,' will be ready for opener
RB Joe McKnight is excused for personal reasons. #nyj
Brandon Moore, through team spokesman, had a "minor procedure" and will rest this week. He'll be back for opener. #nyj
Didn't see McKnight or Moore at practice. Media only there for 30 mins. #
Cumberland, Bellore in red non-contact pinnies. #nyj
Add Landry, Smith to that list. #nyj
Rehab group assembling: Harris, Keller, Po'uha, DeVito, Schilens, Sapp, Lankster. #nyj
Keller (hamstring) is standing off to the side as the team warms up. He's in uniform though.
RT @AdamSchein: Fred Jackson says the Jets will "take it to the next level" in season. He adds, "Rex is going to bring everything in week 1"
RT @ConorTOrr: Rex expects a healthy roster come Buffalo, with S Eric Smith as the lone exception #Jets
Rex Ryan 'assumes' Austin Howard will be opening-day starting right tackle
Rex admits, "I think we've been surprised we haven't scored a TD yet."
Rex adds they'd "definitely" be interested in bringing another TE in. #nyj
When asked if they'd bring in another TE, Rex gives his usual "you'd consider anything that would help the team."
I missed Po'uha. Rex says he's getting better and should be ready for Buffalo too. #nyj
Rex said Holmes, Kerley and Schilens should all play in opener. May be limited in reps.
Rex said he gave honest answer about Coples the other night. Said he doesn't have concerns about him.
Rex said E. Smith is biggest question mark for opener. Says it's his hip. Other guys (Keller, DeVito, Bell, Cumberland) should be ready
Asked if Howard is the opening day starting RT, Rex said, "I feel pretty good about Austin."
Rex "not comfortable" talking about Hunter-Smith trade until 4pm, after it is official. Smith is in building doing physical.
Rex congratulates Nick Folk on winning kicking job. Called competition "as tough as it gets." They hope Brown catches on elsewhere.
