Some player reaction to Christopher Johnson's vote of confidence for Adam Gase: Jamal Adams said, "I have his back. That's our head coach and that's who we ride with." Jonotthan Harrison said, "It shows he has faith in coach Gase, like the rest of us do. It shows he sees the potential and he sees where this team is going. Instead of listening to the outside noise — Gase this, Gase that — he said, ‘I have total faith in coach Gase.'" WR Demaryius Thomas: "That's good for Adam."

Notables on the Jets injury report: DID NOT PRACTICE — RB Le'Veon Bell (knee/ribs/illness), CB Darryl Roberts (calf), LB Brandon Copeland (hip); LIMITED — WR Robby Anderson (back), C Ryan Kalil (knee). Analysis: Bell will be fine. Kalil returned after missing two games. Even if he's ready to play Sunday, the Jets might stick with Jonotthan Harrison.

Jets CEO: Gase 'has my trust,' will return in '20

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said the team's 2-7 start has been "exceedingly frustrating" due to injuries, but that coach Adam Gase would be returning in 2020.

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell won't practice today due to an illness. Adam Gase said it's not serious. When a reporter jokingly asked if it's mono, Gase replied, "Way too soon." CB Darryl Roberts (calf) won't practice. It looks like he will miss another week. Their corners are Brian Poole, Nate Hairston, Arthur Maulet, Bless Austin, Maurice Canady and Kyron Brown.

The Jets made it official, placing TE Chris Herndon and G Brian Winters on season-ending injured reserve. They now have 13 players on IR, eating up $40 million in cap space. They promoted CB Kyron Brown from the practice squad and re-signed LB B.J. Bello.

TE Chris Herndon (fractured rib) and RG Brian Winters (dislocated shoulder) likely are done for the season. In Winter's case, surgery is a possibility. Winters, 28, is the second-longest tenured Jet. This raises questions about his future. He has one year left on his contract ($7.5M cap charge), so there's a chance he could be released in the anticipated OL overhaul. Winters is respected for his toughness, but this will be the fourth time in the last six years that he finishes the season on IR.

After playing in only one game over the previous 26 months, Jets rookie CB Bless Austin (sixth-round pick) made his NFL debut. He played two-plus quarters, recorded two pass break-ups and forced a fumble. The former Rutgers player missed most of the 2017 and 2018 seasons due to major knee injuries. His only game since 2017 was Sept. 1, 2018 against Texas State. Quite a comeback. Said Austin: "I got a goal in mind. I'm on a mission."

Jets safety Adams silences critics with banner day

Jamal Adams finished with a team-high nine tackles and two sacks in the Jets' win over the Giants after taking umbrage with the perception that his recent feud with management created a distraction.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets RB Le'Veon Bell missed some plays in the fourth quarter because of sore ribs. He said "really didn't want to take too many carries on my body," so they went with Bilal Powell. Bell said "of course" he will play next week.

Yep, Sam Darnold said it: "We need every win from here on out because we still have a chance. If we get on a roll here and we win out, we've got a chance to make the playoffs." According to the ESPN playoff predictor, the Jets (2-7) would have a 75 percent chance to make the playoffs IF they win out. If they lose to, say, the Ravens, it drops to 7 percent.


Sam Darnold: We still believe

Jets QB Sam Darnold discussed what allowed him to be successful against the Giants and explained why this season isn't lost yet.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jamal Adams' day: Two sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one touchdown and a team-high nine tackles. Said Adams: "This is nothing, man. This is just the start."
