Injury report: Scott sitting out, again
By Jane McManus
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Bart Scott was not on the field for the Jets’ final practice of the week, leading up to Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
The linebacker has been struggling with a toe injury since Week 3, and will likely miss the game, ending a 119-game playing streak.
Also missing from practice was OT Jason Smith. He has not been one of the chronically injured Jets players, so we are awaiting an explanation on that one from the Jets.
DT Kenrick Ellis (knee), LB Bryan Thomas (hamstring) and RB Joe McKnight (ankle), who have not participated in practice this week, were working out with trainers on the sideline. RB Bilal Powell (shoulder) appeared to be working with the running backs during the brief time that media members were allowed to watch.
Rex Ryan will speak later, to offer more concrete answers on who may or may not play on Sunday, and Tim Tebow is slated to talk as well. No doubt he will be asked what it’s like to be voted the most overrated player in the NFL.
