Predicting the Jets' inactive players for tomorrow: RB Tevin Coleman (illness), WR Jamison Crowder (injury), WR Denzel Mims, DT Jonathan Marshall and RB La'Mical Perine. Analysis: Can see Josh Adams as the RB3 over Perine because of special teams value. Only three safeties on the 53-man roster, so the hunch is that CB Jason Pinnock will be active for the first time. Mims a healthy scratch again.

The Jets have ruled out RB Tevin Coleman with a non-COVID illness. He practiced today. In 2016, Coleman told ESPN he has the sickle cell trait, a blood disorder that can be exacerbated by high altitude. A member of the Falcons at the time, he wasn't sure if he'd play their game in Denver. He did, and played well. This time, it appears that it was a factor in being ruled out.

The Jets are staring at the possibility of 0-3, but Robert Saleh remains upbeat as ever. On Friday, he said, "Call it a biased look at the film, but I felt like we played a really good brand of football (last week). We just turned it over four times, which in the history of football you'll never win." On Sunday, they will "try to showcase who we are." Here's the problem: While certain parts are doing OK, they haven't found the formula for a sound game of complementary football.

Jets OC Mike LaFleur said he's not worried about Zach Wilson's psyche after last week's bad game. LaFleur cautioned that there will be growing pains for everyone. "From the start when we got here, going into next year, there's going to be ups and downs with him, this offense, for myself, for everybody," he said. He said Wilson is "unflappable." The Jets have scored 20 points in two games.

After a rough opener, rookie WR Elijah Moore said he felt more comfortable in Week 2. Asked about Week 1, which included a drop on a long pass, he said, "It's something unexplainable."

Michael Carter will face his old college running mate on Sunday, Broncos rookie Javonte Williams. They were a dynamic tandem at North Carolina. Carter said they still talk almost every day, adding that it will be a "weird experience" to be on opposite sides. They're both off to solid starts — Carter has 65 yards on 15 carries (4.3 ypc) and Williams has 109 on 27 (4.0 ypc).

Jets injury report: WR Jamison Crowder didn't practice, meaning he apparently suffered a setback last Friday. Robert Saleh called it a "flare up." The early hunch is that Crowder will miss his third straight game. LB B.J. Goodson, listed as a DNP, decided to retire, the Jets announced.

Cute story from Robert Saleh: He said his mother, who doesn't know much about football, offered advice after Sunday's loss. Saleh: "She'll probably kill me. God bless my mother. (She speaks) broken English, doesn't even know how many yards to get a first down, but she was coaching me up on what we should tell our receivers." He didn't say what that was. "I was a little upset at the time," he said, "so I'm not sure I took it all in."

Injury of note: QB Zach Wilson is dealing with a minor groin injury. Robert Saleh said he's not concerned, adding that the rookie will practice fully today. Wilson reported soreness after the game and received treatment. By rule, players that receive treatment must be listed on the injury report.

C.J. Mosley on Zach Wilson: "I haven't seen him with his head down. I haven't seen him look sad or feeling sorry for himself. That's the kind of person he is. That's the kind of man he is. We all believe in him. We all expect great things from him, but nobody ever said it was going to be easy. It's all about growing pains in this league and life. I think he's going to bounce back. I KNOW he's going to bounce back."

On the day after his historically bad game, Zach Wilson received gushing support from Robert Saleh — as you'd expect. "There's going to be some hair-pulling moments. There's going to be some exciting moments. There's going to be unbelievable moments. Yesterday was a rough one, but it doesn't mean that's the trend. He's going to get better from this and he's going to have moments where it's like, ‘Holy cow is he special!"
