AFC East links: Rex not worried about 'D'

Buffalo Bills

Alex Carrington is still adjusting to his new role as a linebacker.

Kraig Urbik knows he'll have to be on top of his game Thursday night when the Bills face Ndamukong Suh and the Detroit Lions.

Miami Dolphins

Running back Larry Johnson hopes he gets a chance to show what he can do Thursday in the Dolphins' preseason finale.

Jake Long says he's not optimistic that he'll see the field Thursday against the Dallas Cowboys.

New England Patriots

Wide receiver Wes Welker remains hopeful that he'll be on the field for the regular-season opener after injuring his neck on Saturday.

Owner Robert Kraft shared his thoughts of Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth.

New York Jets

Coach Rex Ryan on his defense: "I wouldn't trade this defense for anybody's in the league. You're not going to be perfect, but will we end up being the best defense in football? I think so. Believe me, the least concern I have is about our defense. I think our defense is going to be outstanding."

The offense, on the other hand, still has some work to do.
