David Nelson misses practice for Jets

There was no sign of wide receiver David Nelson at New York Jets practice Wednesday, the first time the Jets took the field since a 24-17 loss to the Lions Sunday. Nelson suffered a sprained left ankle in the game. On Monday, Jets coach Rex Ryan said he was unsure of the extent of the injury, but the fact that Nelson didn’t finish the game was a bad sign. But in good news for the team’s banged-up secondary, the Jets did get cornerback Dee Milliner back on the field.

Jeremy Kerley has faith in Geno Smith

Two lockers down from where Geno Smith was surrounded by reporters asking about his latest struggles, Jeremy Kerley, his voice barely above a whisper, offered unwavering support for the Jets' embattled quarterback. And no, this wasn't your typical default reaction of one teammate defending another from an onslaught of criticism, the kind you see in most locker rooms when a quarterback is in a protracted slump.

Jets' Geno Smith testy in response to Michael Vick question

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Geno Smith lost his poise Sunday when he yelled a profanity at a heckler, and he became agitated Wednesday when a reporter asked about Michael Vick. Some will try to connect the dots, saying the embattled quarterback is succumbing to the pressure. You could draw that conclusion from the stadium outburst, but a testy exchange with a reporter? Well, you be the judge. Standing in front of his locker for his usual Wednesday session with the media, Smith was asked if he believes a relief appearance by Vick would be the "best avenue to take" to win a particular game.
