AFC East links: Haynesworth back in action
By ESPN.com staff
After expressing his displeasure with his apparent place on the Bills' depth chart, Fred Jackson has been told he will start Saturday's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
As he entered camp as a projected starter, safety George Wilson has displayed more confidence, according to teammates.
Reggie Bush admits that he's taken some added motivation with him to his new home in Miami.
Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald says the Dolphins have nothing to lose by signing running back Larry Johnson.
New England Patriots
It's still only an exhibition game, but Saturday's matchup with the Detroit Lions will have some meaning for the Patriots.
Albert Haynesworth returned to practice on Tuesday, and the Patriots hope that's a permanent development.
New York Jets
Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post on Vernon Gholston's comments that Rex Ryan never gave him a fair shot while Gholston was with the Jets. "For all the chances and the kid-gloves treatment Ryan gave Gholston -- not to mention the $20 million in guaranteed money he got from the Jets for simply being drafted that high in '08 -- that's not a position he should have put Ryan in with those comments Monday night."
Shonn Greene says he expects to play against the New York Giants on Saturday night.
