The Jets are dealing with another offensive-line injury: C Ryan Kalil hurt his shoulder yesterday, won't practice today and is listed as day-to-day. LT Kelvin Beachum (ankle) still isn't practicing and there's a good chance he won't play Monday night. If Kalil sits, the O-line could look like this (left to right): Chuma Edoga or Brandon Shell, Alex Lewis, Jonotthan Harrison, Brian Winters and Edoga or Shell. GM Joe Douglas is glad he bolstered the depth in training camp.

AJ Hinch on CC Sabathia: "I hate to see that for him, I hate to see that for the sport. Our entire dugout was on the top step paying our respects to him trying to gut it out. You can see the impact he's had on numerous players on our team, and me and everybody else, that we have so much respect for him that in the middle of a heavyweight bout of playoff baseball we can pay our respects to what his effort was."

Jets S Jamal Adams called Monday night a huge game. But then he didn't. Anyway, here's what he said about the Patriots: "We're not gonna get caught up in all the hype, but we understand what's at stake, we understand this is a must-win for us. It's honestly like a playoff game. That's how we're treating it. It's a big game." Adams backtracked a bit, saying, "We're not going to make anything bigger than what it is.." Got it?

WR Sterling Shepard (concussion) is not going to be cleared this week given his situation, per sources. Will miss Sunday vs. Arizona. Even next week is uncertain. He's been practicing with a non-contact jersey but a lot to be take into consideration considering he suffered two concussions in a four-week span.
