Judge hits 45th HR; Gregorius passes Jeter

Jets coach Todd Bowles said TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has "got to get in a little better shape. That's to be expected with two weeks off, but he'll get going." Bowles said it's too early to say for sure that Seferian-Jenkins will be active on Sunday against the Dolphins. It would be a surprise if he's not. The Jets have four other tight ends on the roster, but three are dealing with injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from a two-game suspension.

Three offensive starters missed practice for the Jets -- RG Brian Winters (abdomen), WR Robby Anderson (knee) and TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow). They're banged up at tight end, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to play this week after a two-game suspension. Winters bears watching because the right guard draws Ndamukong Suh. DE Mo Wilkerson said he's not concerned about his shoulder.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson said his injured shoulder is "no concern at all."

The Yankees beat the Twins, 11-3, to sweep their three-game series. But the immediate concern was a toddler being hit by a foul ball. The young girl was taken to a nearby hospital.

After walking Giancarlo Stanton four times on Tuesday, the Mets pitched to him today and the big guy swatted his 56th home run. With 10 games remaining, can Stanton get to 60? Based on his season rate of home runs, he'd hit 3.75 in the Marlins' remaining 10 games. Meanwhile, Aaron Judge slammed his 45th home run as he closes in on Mark McGwire's rookie record of 49 set in 1987. That's eight HR, 19 RBI and 20 runs in September for Judge as he re-ignites his MVP case.

Odell Beckham (ankle), Evan Engram (concussion) and LB Keenan Robinson (concussion) listed as limited practice. Engram entered into protocol as "precaution."
