A position-by-position breakdown of the New York Jets' playing time, starting with the offense (based on 551 snaps):

QUARTERBACK

Geno Smith -- 535 snaps/97 percent

Matt Simms -- 16 snaps/3 percent

Analysis: Say this for Smith -- he's getting plenty of on-the-job training. This much playing time will prove to be enormously beneficial in the long run.

RUNNING BACK

Bilal Powell -- 336 snaps/61 percent

Tommy Bohanon -- 222 snaps/40 percent

Chris Ivory -- 133 snaps/24 percent

Alex Green -- 33 snaps/6 percent

Mike Goodson -- 30 snaps/5 percent

Analysis: Shockingly low numbers for Ivory and Goodson, who were expected to be the leaders of the backfield. Ivory's numbers should spike now that he's healthy. Goodson is done for the season. Powell absorbed some of the lost time from Ivory and Goodson; it also helps that he can play all three downs. The Jets used more two-back sets than many expected, which explains Bohanon's relatively high number at fullback.

WIDE RECEIVER

Stephen Hill -- 414 snaps/75 percent

Jeremy Kerley -- 381 snaps/69 percent

Santonio Holmes -- 219 snaps/40 percent

David Nelson -- 155 snaps/28 percent

Clyde Gates -- 133 snaps/24 percent

Ben Obomanu -- 41 snaps/7 percent

Ryan Spadola -- 27 snaps/5 percent

Michael Campbell -- 24 snaps/4 percent

Josh Cribbs -- 7 snaps/1 percent

Analysis: This position has been hit hard by injuries, which explains the low number for Holmes and the high number for Kerley. Campbell, Spadola and Obomanu are no longer with the team, and Gates is on IR. Nelson has been a nice addition.

TIGHT END

Jeff Cumberland -- 326 snaps/59 percent

Kellen Winslow -- 201 snaps/36 percent

Zach Sudfeld -- 40 snaps/7 percent

Konrad Reuland -- 24 snaps/4 percent

Sheldon Richardson -- 1 snap/.1 percent

Analysis: Before his suspension, Winslow was seeing more time than Cumberland, which was a surprise. Winslow still has one more game to serve. As you can see, depth is a major concern.

OFFENSIVE LINE

D'Brickashaw Ferguson -- 551 snaps/100 percent

Willie Colon -- 551 snaps/100 percent

Austin Howard -- 551 snaps/100 percent

Nick Mangold -- 549 snaps/99 percent

Vladimir Ducasse -- 292 snaps/53 percent

Brian Winters -- 263 snaps/48 percent

Caleb Schlauderaff -- 2 snaps/.3 percent

Analysis: They've been remarkably healthy, as the starters have missed only two snaps due to injury. Winters replaced Ducasse at left guard after the fourth game.
