Day 10: What to expect

Wednesday in Florham Park, N.J.:

• No practice. This is a day off for the players, their second day off since training camp opened. Welcome to the NFL's post-lockout world.

• The Jets return to practice Thursday, giving them three days of work before traveling to Houston for Monday night's pre-season opener on ESPN. These are known as the dog days. Even though this training camp has been less taxing than previous years, this is the time when players get tired of the monotony of practice and want to get into game mode.
