Jets injury update: CB Trumaine Johnson missed practice with a strained hamstring, which occurred Thursday night against the Redskins. He was held out as a precaution, said Todd Bowles, who is "hopeful" that Johnson will be back soon. Johnson was their marquee addition on defense; they can't afford to lose him. Positive news: LT Kelvin Beachum and RG Brian Winters returned to the field, albeit on a very limited basis. Basically, they participated in the walk-through. Bowles said "they're close" to returning to action "We're just playing them slow. We're working them in slowly. We're going to take our time with them." Bowles is optimistic they will be ready for Week 1.

Pat Shurmur gave an obligatory "we'll see" when asked about playing Odell Beckham Jr. in the third preseason game. The star WR didn't play in the first two exhibition contests and hasn't played in a game since breaking his ankle in October.

The Giants plane last night didn't arrive in Detroit until after 2 am. They got back around 5 am. "Sleep is overrated" according to coach Pat Shurmur. Only injured players needed to come in Saturday for treatment.

The Yankees' Miguel Andujar now has 36 doubles this season and is on pace to finish with 47. The American League record for rookies is 47 — set by Boston's Fred Lynn, who won the AL MVP award as a rookie in 1975. The overall big-league mark for rookies is 52, set by Johnny Frederick of the Brooklyn Robins in 1929.

It was an evening of redemption for Davis Webb. After a shaky outing last week, he bounced back in a big way against the Detroit Lions. Webb went 14-of-20 passing for 140 yards with a touchdown while playing the entire first half. He showed a strong command to the offense and an ability to fit throws into tight windows. He had a QB rating of 106.3 after a 49.4 last week. This was much needed. Webb didn't play last year and likely won't play much next week in preseason game No. 3. That will be Eli Manning's opportunity to get ready for the season. Manning didn't play vs. the Lions. But Webb at least gave the Giants hope they have a trustworthy backup this year and potential for more in the future.

Tonight is going to be the Davis Webb show with Eli Manning unlikely to play. Pretty big opportunity for the young QB. Needs to bounce back strong. No Odell Beckham or Saquon Barkley either but should get to play behind starting OL + with weapons like Evan Engram/Sterling Shepard.

Odell Beckham Jr. making quite the entrance. Always having fun. Not expecting him to play tonight vs. Lions though.

Aaron Boone says Aaron Judge played catch today and could be in a position to take dry swings this afternoon depending upon how he's feeling after earlier work. Also, Gary Sánchez will head to Tampa on Sunday as he continues his recovery, and will have a rehab start soon thereafter. Sánchez likely will play in a lot of rehab games before he gets back to the big-league roster, Boone said. He didn't want to put a new timeline on when we might see Judge.

Jets stock-market report: Rising — QB Teddy Bridgewater, WR Tre McBride, WR Charone Peake, LB Jordan Jenkins and S Doug Middleton. Falling: T Brent Qvale, G/C Jonotthan Harrison, WR Chad Hansen, LB Frankie Luvu, LB Lorenzo Mauldin, CB Juston Burris and PK Cairo Santos. Holding steady: QB Sam Darnold.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Notable snap counts from last night: QB Teddy Bridgewater played 30 snaps (57 percent). Sam Darnold got 23 snaps (43 percent). C/G Jonotthan Harrison led the way on offense (46/87) because he did double duty, playing with the starters and backups. TE Jordan Leggett played 15/28 in his preseason debut. Chad Hansen (22/42) finished third among the receivers, but he played with the backups. S Terrence Brooks (41/64) led the defense. Notably quiet: David Bass, their leading sacker among linebackers in 2017, had only two special teams snaps, none on defense. LB Dylan Donahue (14/22) also played sparingly.
