Practice report: Missing Reed

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Jets safety Ed Reed was not present at the open portion of practice Thursday. This could be a maintenance day -- the team has given him days off during the week.

The Jets were also without tight end Kellen Winslow (knee), who receives days off to help manage the pain in his knee. Winslow did not work earlier in the week. He has yet to miss a game because of injury.

Cornerback Ellis Lankster (jaw) was participating in positional drills, sometimes with his helmet on and other times without it. Lankster didn't play against Cleveland and didn't practice earlier this week.
