The Jet Report Aug 30 Rewind:
FB John Connor injured his ankle Monday night against the Giants but Rex Ryan hopes to have him ready by week one against Dallas. Don’t be shocked to see former FB Tony Richardson’s name pop up over the next few days should Connor’s situation take a turn for the worse.
The Jets released K Nick Novak, ending a battle for the kicker’s job that never really heated up to intense proportions. Folk has been steady on field goals and kickoffs this preseason and althohg Novak has been solid as well, it was Folk’s job to lose.
Punter Chris Bryan was cut as well, leaving those duties to TJ Conley, who lost the competition to Steve Weatherford in 2010. Conley appears to be safe. Jets nation though, has raised the question of whether the Jets may still be consider the loser of the Giants punting battle between Weatherford (now a Giant) and Matt Dodge, as a last second option.
