For the first time in two weeks, Jets DT Mike DeVito was on the practice field in uniform with the Jets. He has missed two games with a knee injury.

CB Marquice Cole was stretched on the sideline. He said he was kicked in the leg during the Jets win over the Chiefs Sunday. He missed some time but returned to that game.

Also absent was OL Brandon Moore, who played against the Chiefs with a hip injury. Jets coach Rex Ryan said the right guard would be managed each week going forward, and missing Wednesday practices would be part of that.



There was a new addition on the field in S Gerald Alexander, who has been brought in to add depth to a group that will miss Jim Leonhard. Brodney Pool will take over Leonhard's starting spot, but Ryan mentioned that they would look to add pieces.

Most notably, the Jets practice DJ played "Philadelphia Freedom." It was a bit jarring coming on the heels of "All I do is Win" and a new Jay-Z/Kanye West hit with an unprintable name. With the Eagles up this week however, Elton John was a suitable addition to the playlist.
