Jets prep for Seahawks

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- It was cold this morning when the Jets took to the turf at their practice facility on the same day they will travel to Seattle in preparation for Sunday’s game. RB Joe McKnight (ankle) worked off to the side, but all the other players took part in team drills.

That included LB Bart Scott (toe) and defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis (knee) who both practiced in a limited capacity despite missing the Miami game before the bye.

Judging from Rex Ryan’s comments yesterday, the team is confident that they will still make the playoffs despite a 3-5 start. That is likely to mean winning the wildcard given that the Jets have already lost games to Miami and New England. But Antonio Cromartie (who didn't want to talk to Jets reporters after practice yesterday) was pretty confident that his team will make the playoffs.

Having Ellis and Scott back on the field this weekend would be a good start. Ryan hasn't made any definitive calls about any of the three who didn't play last week, but he could shed more light later when he holds his press conference.
