The Jets' invisible wide receivers -- Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall -- are back at practice today. They skipped the opening week in what appeared to be a show of solidarity for the unsigned Ryan Fitzpatrick. Unfortunately, today's practice is closed to the media. We'll have to wait until tomorrow to get their take.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze isn't running from the Rebels' NCAA troubles, but told ESPN.com on Monday that to accuse him or anybody on his staff of knowingly breaking the rules would be wrong. "The first thing I would say is that I own it. That's part of it when you're the head coach. You take the good with the bad," Freeze said. "But there's a big difference between making mistakes in recruiting and going out there with the intent to cheat. I don't have any information that anybody on my staff has been involved in any illegal payments to players or offering any inducements to players, and if I did have that information, I would fire them."
