    this could be good news. Hopefully Keller has fully recovered from the debilitating bruised vajayjay that has kept him out of the lineup for weeks

    Out of curiosity, what happens to a guy like Epps now?

    Does he have to pay out of pocket for his medical expenses for his recovery, assuming he has no coverage now that he has been waived?

    Always wondered how that worked for the guys that got hurt and then waived like this.

    wow.

    Dustin has been a really productive Jet, and has done nothing to deserve these remarks about his sexuality.

    Way to support the team man.

    Either the Jets have reached agreement to let him go and pay him an injury settlement for his medical expenses, or else he is headed for IR if he clears waivers in which case he would still get paid while rehabbing.

    I actually just finished my own PT at TEST in Martinsville NJ. Patrick Turner and Royce Adams were there beofre Turner was brought back this week. The Jets must insure the players when they are cut when injured. They go to the Jets offseason approved facility, which happens to be TEST like I mentioned.

    how many weeks has he missed with a hammy injury now?

    Isnt he in a contract year?

    Soft.

    I know hammies are a pain to heal up from, and are very susceptible to being re-injured.... but c'mon.

    why was Epps waived? why are the jets holding onto this pipe dream that their going to make the playoffs and have Revis come back and not placing him on IR? i mean i know Epps hasn't really done much, but he's a big body, a young guy with some potential. i get he was hurt but come on, lets place Revis on IR already.

    If your theory was true then how do you explain so many of these guys ending up broke? Sure they have connections, but some of these guys are not that intelligent and took basket-weaving in college.

    As for Epps, i feel a little bad for him, but would feel a little worse if he would have held on to the ball after the catch and injury. I have seen plenty of players suffer serious injuries and not just give up the ball. We had two guys do it during the same game. Then again, i kind of expect that from Holmes.
