With the theme song from Sesame Street blaring from a nearby parking lot, the Jets put in a full morning workout in preparation for Saturday's game with the New Orleans Saints.

The session was spirited and relaxed with a lot of kibitzing between the offensive and defensive players. One noteworthy moment came during the 7 on 7 drills when Chad Pennington fooled the defense with a quick shovel pass to Curtis Martin, who broke a nice run. The designed play caused the defensive players to boo while Pennington whooped it up.

Pennington was extremely sharp all morning. Following a quick read and pass to Anthony Becht, offensive coordinator Paul Hackett was quite pleased with the aptitude and performance of his young signal caller, prompting him to exclaim, "Yes! Intelligent."

Chad was also perfect during extended Red Zone drills, finding Curtis Conway free several times on underneath routes.

Martin was gazelle-like every time he touched the ball, which was frequent. He deeked the linebackers and galloped untouched on several attempts. Wayne Chrebet was equally sharp and looks ready and raring to go Saturday. Both Martin and Chrebet should see ample playing time as the Jets get closer to their much anticipated Sept. 4 season opener in Washington.

Speaking of running backs, Jonathan Reese had a few eye-opening bursts that drew oohs and aahs from the players and fans alike. Chester McGlockton showed nice pursuit on the defensive side of the ball.

From the X-rated category: safety DeShaun Hill inadvertently yanked down Lamont Jordan's sweatpants during a later drill, exposing the former Maryland Terpsí hind quarters.

CB Jamie Hendersonís knee sprain is not serious. He is day to day and could play against New Orleans. WR Jonathan Carter may not be so lucky. The Jets are waiting for MRI results on Carterís injured knee and the buzz is that it may be more serious than thought. He will definitely miss Saturdayís game at the least. Not good news for someone who is trying to lock down that fifth wideout spot.
