Moore to remain with Jets for rest of season

The Jets offensive consultant Tom Moore was back on the practice field Wednesday as the Jets worked on the indoor field during some heavy rain outside the practice facility. The Colts former offensive coordinator -- ostensibly retired -- arrived last week and traveled with the team to Washington to see the 34-19 win over the Redskins.

Moore has been working individually with receivers, and coach Rex Ryan made it clear he'd like to have more of Moore. If the creative offensive plays last Sunday were any indication, the Jets have benefitted from his presence.

RG Brandon Moore (hip) was absent from the early part of practice. For more on his condition see the post below. Mike DeVito, who missed the Washington game with a knee injury, did not practice with the team but worked out on the sideline. with practice squad tight end Jamarko Simmons.

Joe McKnight (elbow) was present with a contraption on the hyperextended right elbow. WR Jeremy Kerley and RB LaDainian Tomlinson, both having missed recent games with knee injuries, practiced with their groups as well.

Not sure if this belongs in the "unusual occurrence" category, but Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum spent a lot of time talking together on the sideline as Tom Moore stood by the quarterbacks.


Update: Ryan said that Tom Moore will remain with the Jets for the rest of the season. Ryan joked that he went from consultant to "Mega Consultant." We will have more on that later.
