Dolphins favored in the Meadowlands

ESPN's FPI gives the Dolphins, who rank top-10 in offensive efficiency, a two-thirds chance of going on the road and beating their AFC East rivals, the Jets, who have the second-worst defensive efficiency.

The Jets have ruled out RG Brian Winters, which means a backup will have to block Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh. It'll be Dakota Dozier or Brent Qvale, per Todd Bowles. DE Mo Wilkerson (shoulder) is questionable. He returned to practice (limited) and showed improvement. He's expected to play. They're hurting at tight end. Eric Tomlinson (elbow) is out, Will Tye (illness) is questionable and Jordan Leggett (knee) is doubtful. Good thing Austin Seferian-Jenkins is returning.

Jets DL Leonard Williams (wrist) was downgraded to "limited" with what he's calling a bone bruise. It's a preseason injury that was initially called a sprain. Williams said he's having "ups and downs with it. It's been bothering me at times." He has been experiencing post-game swelling. This sounds like something he'll have to play through this season.

Forte's thoughts on Morton's comments for three-man backfield (0:23)

Fantasy owners, take note: Jets offensive coordinator John Morton said he'd like to continue with a three-man backfield -- Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and rookie Elijah McGuire, who made his debut last week. Forte shares his thoughts on the switch.

Explaining why they re-signed PR/WR Kalif Raymond to the practice squad after his costly muff on Sunday, Jets coach Todd Bowles said they wanted to keep working with him because he's "got some tools to develop." He was referring to Raymond's receiving ability, not just punt returning. Bowles ruled out the possibility of signing Raymond to the roster and using him on Sunday. They have a "handful" of candidates to return punts and kickoffs, per special teams coach Brant Boyer. Jeremy Kerley and Elijah McGuire are thought to be among the candidates.

Jets WR Robby Anderson (knee) practiced on a limited basis. As expected, DE Mo Wilkerson (shoulder) and RG Brian Winters (abdomen) didn't practice. DE Leo Williams still is experiencing soreness from a preseason wrist injury and was limited in practice.

Early look-in at practice: DE Mo Wilkerson (shoulder), WR Robby Anderson (knee) and RG Brian Winters (abdomen) are sitting out for the second day in a row. Anderson, wearing a brace, did some running off to the side.

Dolphins-Jets could be 'closer than people imagine' (0:52)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Looking to bolster their edge pass rush, the Jets have signed DE David Bass, who was released earlier this week by the Seahawks. He played 25 snaps in two games for Seattle, recording one tackle. He also played with the Titans and Bears (5.5 career sacks). Bass could be a nickel rusher for the Jets, who have only two sacks. To make room, they waived LB Freddie Bishop.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Two days after waiving PR Kalif Raymond, whose muffed punt loomed large in the loss to the Raiders, the Jets have re-signed him to the practice squad. This is a curious turn of events. So much for sending a message. Maybe coach Todd Bowles doesn't like his replacement options on the current roster, Jeremy Kerley and Elijah McGuire.

Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Austin Seferian-Jenkins' DUI arrest while playing for Tampa Bay. The Jets' tight end, coming off a two-game suspension stemming from the arrest, says he has gone 242 days without alcohol. He hopes his story can serve as an example to others.

After cutting return specialist Kalif Raymond, the Jets will have a new punt returner and kickoff returner Sunday against the Dolphins. Jeremy Kerley and Elijah McGuire are working in both roles in practice. Coach Todd Bowles said he won't make a decision until game day.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets coach Todd Bowles said TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has "got to get in a little better shape. That's to be expected with two weeks off, but he'll get going." Bowles said it's too early to say for sure that Seferian-Jenkins will be active on Sunday against the Dolphins. It would be a surprise if he's not. The Jets have four other tight ends on the roster, but three are dealing with injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from a two-game suspension.

Three offensive starters missed practice for the Jets -- RG Brian Winters (abdomen), WR Robby Anderson (knee) and TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow). They're banged up at tight end, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to play this week after a two-game suspension. Winters bears watching because the right guard draws Ndamukong Suh. DE Mo Wilkerson said he's not concerned about his shoulder.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson said his injured shoulder is "no concern at all."

Jets CEO wants to win, insists team not tanking

New Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said he, not brother Woody, is making the football decisions for the Jets and insisted Wednesday that the team is not tanking so it can draft a top quarterback in 2018.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

New Jets CEO Christopher Johnson spoke to the media for the first time since taking over the team from his older brother, Woody, the new U.S. ambassador to the U.K. Biggest takeaways: Johnson said he doesn't consult with Woody on any football matters. He said he will decide the fates of coach Todd Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan. He said, "We definitely are not tanking." Johnson is excited about the future, yet realistic about the present. He struck the right balance. It was an impressive media debut.
