The Jets confirmed what was expected when Head Coach Herman Edwards announced today that starting RG Brandon Moore is out for this weekend’s game against San Francisco joining fellow starting guard Pete Kendall.

The Jets confirmed what was expected when Head Coach Herman Edwards announced today that starting RG Brandon Moore is out for this weekend’s game against San Francisco joining fellow starting guard Pete Kendall.

Moore was downgraded after being listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury. Moore hurt his hamstring in last week’s win over Buffalo.

The Jets offensive line will also be without starting LG Pete Kendall who broke his big toe on his right foot in the win over Buffalo. Edwards confirmed that Brent Smith will start at LG and Jonathan Goodwin will fill in for Moore at RG against the 49ers.

Both Smith and Goodwin will have to step up as the offensive line has been outstanding this season, leading the way for RB Curtis Martin and protecting QB Chad Pennington.

Pennington owns a 66.8 career passing completion percentage and a 98.7 passer rating in the regular season during his career. Today, Edwards talked about why Pennington has been so successful.

“It’s the system, he’s smart, and he’s accurate,” Edwards said. “You have to be accurate and you can’t be greedy. He has a good pocket presence.”

MISCELLANEOUS TIDBITS: The Jets signed RB/KR Keith Burnell and C Drew Caylor to the practice squad. Burnell was a member of the 2003 Jets practice squad and spent part of 2004 training camp with the Jets. Caylor was on the Jets active roster for games three and four but was inactive. He was waived yesterday to make room for G Dave Yovanovits who was signed from the practice squad.

INJURY REPORT: As mentioned above, RG Brandon Moore is now out for Sunday’s game. WR Santana Moss remains questionable and did not practice today. LB Eric Barton is probable with an ankle injury and practiced today.

-LB Sam Cowart (knee): Out
-SS Rashad Washington(foot): Out
