Jets injury report: Barring setbacks, they should get WR Jamison Crowder, LT Mekhi Becton, RT George Fant and CB Quincy Wilson back for Thursday night. WR Breshad Perriman will miss his second game.

The Jets will face Broncos third-string QB Brett Rypien, who makes his first NFL start. DC Gregg Williams doesn't have much tape to go on — 15 plays last week, plus 91 in the 2019 preseason. He said Rypien did a good job of changing protections last week. Look for Williams to send the kitchen sink and try to confuse him. His blitz numbers are down this year.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder, out two games with a hamstring injury, said he feels "real good" about his chances of playing Thursday night. Crowder said he did running and cutting today, and that he's confident he can get through the whole game. With Crowder on the sideline, Braxton Berrios did a solid job in the slot. It'll be interesting to see if Adam Gase finds a way to get Crowder and Berrios on the field together.

Sounds like QB Joe Flacco (neck) will be inactive for the fourth straight week. The Jets knew he'd miss about three games when they signed him in May. Meanwhile, he continues to take up a roster spot. Asked if he needs more time, Flacco said, "Yeah. I feel good, but it's one of those things where ... you don't want to all of a sudden rush something in the last hour. I've taken my time and I feel really good, but I want to make sure I have my feet underneath me."

Broncos give Rypien start at QB for Jets matchup

On Thursday night against the Jets, Brett Rypien will be the ninth different quarterback to start a game for the Broncos since the start of the 2017 season.

Based on what Adam Gase is saying, the Jets are one angry team. On Sam Darnold: "I could see it on his face after the last game, like, he's pissed. He's not only mad at the score, but how it went down." On how the team feels about the lopsided deficits in the first three games: "I think they're pissed." By that, he meant they missed opportunities to prevent the "avalanche" from happening. Watch out, Denver.

Adam Gase said he has talked to Sam Darnold about pressing — trying to do too much. He said it happened a couple of times vs Indy. But Gase added: "You don't want to just completely make him a robot because that TD pass against Indy, when he made five guys miss in the pocket, squeezes out of there and makes a great throw to (Braxton) Berrios, those things ... are game-changing type plays. You have to find that fine line."

Jets early injury report: They should get some key players back for Thursday night: WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring), RT George Fant (concussion) and LT Mekhi Becton (shoulder) are trending toward playing, per Adam Gase. All will be limited today. CB Quincy Wilson (concussion), LB Jordan Jenkins (shoulder), S Ashtyn Davis (groin) and WR Chris Hogan (quad) also limited. WR Jeff Smith (shoulder) will come off IR.

Jets' Gase: Struggling Darnold won't be benched

Adam Gase said Monday that he has no plans to bench struggling quarterback Sam Darnold because "he needs to keep playing and keep fixing the mistakes that are made."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

With a Thursday game, the Jets and Broncos released an injury report based on estimated status, as neither team practiced today.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Rumors are flying that Adam Gase will be a goner if the Jets lose on Thursday night. Asked how he's handling the speculation and criticism, Gase said, "This is the NFL. We're 0-3 right now. We haven't played well. We have to improve quickly. My job is to do everything I can to get our guys in the right head space heading to (the game)."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets injury update: WR Breshad Perriman (ankle) won't play Thursday. WR Jamison Crowder (hamstring) has a chance. Sounds like a game-time decision. LB Jordan Jenkins played through a shoulder injury yesterday and it's "going to be hard to hold him out," Adam Gase said. RT George Fant and CB Quincy Wilson remain in concussion protocol, but are advancing.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Finally, some positive injury news for the Jets: Rookie LT Mekhi Becton (shoulder) did not suffer a serious injury yesterday, an MRI revealed, and he could play Thursday night against the Broncos. Initially, they feared a pectoral injury, which could've been devastating. He's now day-to-day, per Adam Gase, who said: "I know he's very motivated to get back out there. He kind of saw how the holes weren't quite opening up the same when he was out of the game."

Williams is charged with two felonies, including criminal possession of a weapon (ammo clip). His attorney has said he's confident the criminal charges will be dismissed.
