Terry Collins is not confident Jose Reyes will be able to return to the lineup on Friday, which had been the hope. Reyes suffered a strained intercostal muscle on his left side on Tuesday. "He was pretty sore last night when he left here," Collins said.

Terry Collins says the day off for Yoenis Cespedes is more than a prudent day off. The balky right quadriceps muscle has flared up. "My leg's pretty sore tonight," Cespedes told Collins late Wednesday. Collins said it's possible Cespedes' absence could last beyond one day.

Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, speaking to ESPN by phone from a doctor's office as he waited to take his physical, said he expects to practice today. On the five-month contract dispute: "It definitely was a long process. After coming to the realization that it wasn't going to get done right away and that it was going to take some time, I tried my best to put it out of my mind and tried to live life normally. But it was hard with people coming up to me and asking about the contract, people texting me. It was hovering ... looming over my head for five months. In the end, I'm happy the way it turned out." He said he walked into last night's first team meeting "one second" before it started. He told Todd Bowles, "Sorry I'm late." He said some players seemed shocked to see him.
