Tested the injured ribs with an extended throwing session here in Indianapolis, most comfortable he's looked since suffering the injury in the preseason opener against the Bucs. The hope is to have him play in the preseason finale against the Jets.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall, chatting with personnel director Brian Heimerdinger, is scratched from tonight's game. He's smiling and talking with people along the sideline. If he's resting, it's an odd game to take off.
