View Full Version : Pennington to Miss Season Opener, Could Miss Miami Game Too

From Pro Football Talk Rumor Mill....


Jets QB Chad Pennington will miss at least the regular-season opener (and likely more) due to a fractured and dislocated left wrist.


The Jets also lost QB Brooks Bollinger with a sprained knee, which likely will prompt the Jets to sign at least one veteran quarterback.

So there's a fairly good chance that the Dolphins will be facing Vinny Testeverde in Week 2.

Definitely increases our chances of winning the game, which is good because the 2nd Jets game is at home where we were near perfect last year (excepting of course a Lucas hiccup)

Tough break for Chad though, I really like him as a QB and he's a good guy. He's a good ole country boy that doesn't need to be in NYC I tell you that. Jay Fiedler's a New York kinda guy, you think we could switch?

he'll be back week 4 or 5..

Whoa no way...he can't be out for the season. No way dude! He's my fantasy QB!

Heh. Nah I don't think he'll be out for the year. Sounds like a week-to-week thing where he'll be back by game 4 or something.

NYTimes says this...


The injury is to Pennington's nonthrowing hand, and the Jets did not initially announce how long he would be out, but he will definitely miss the season opener in 12 days against Washington and perhaps much longer. Standard guidelines call for an injury like this to take six to eight weeks to heal, but that is for a nonathlete. Because the injury is not to Pennington's throwing hand, it seems unlikely that it would end his season.

To me it sounds like there's an outside shot the Jets could rush him back into action just in time to beat the Dolphins

You talk like he will beat us if he's in.

Trust me, he won't be back that quick. But then again, there's no way he misses more than 5 games. It's his non-throwing arm. But still.. I'm sure it's highly doubtful he makes it back in time for week 2!

If they want to rush them back..let em.

I'm fine with him fumbling a few snaps inside the 20 ;0.

Yeah I was thinking in my head, that Ray Lucas is out there looking for a job and he knows Herm, wouldn't be surprised at all If they sign him. Then If we took Vinny out in week 2....us Vs a Ray Lucas who doesn't know the system.....AHHHH YEAHH!

Yeah. Take a look at this picture:

Yup. That's the fingers of his left hand you can barely see in the grass. "Typical" recovery may be 6-8 weeks, but in Herm Edwards' words, that is a "gruesome" injury.

Willis McGahee's knee was a "gruesome" injury. Supposed to take at least a year to recover. Here we are, about 8 months away from the injury and he's already practicing with the Bills. He'll be put on IR for political reasons, not health.

I'm telling you, since its his NON-throwing hand, his recovery will be way quicker than the normal 6-8 weeks. I doubt he'll be in against Miami...and I'm not saying Miami automatically loses to the Jets but lets face it...its in NY. We were a horrible road team last year and the Jets with Pennington are still a quality team. This team will have to prove to me that our road woes are over, before I think any differently.

lets face it, we lost that game by a fumble (if you look close at teh replay its not a fumble cus rickys knees were down)and a TD that was called back due to that stupid new rule that says even if you catch it in the endzone for a second and then fall out of bounds where the ground jogs the ball slightly, then it is not a TD! lets face it, we got ripped off by NY once again.

3:45 EST - ESPN RADIO just reported - NYJ reports Pennington out at least 12 weeks.

The Bills offense is *highly* overrated. In fact, I wouldnt be surprise if we had a better offense this season then they do. Last season they gained 200 more yards then us and scored one more point.

They lost approximately 2000 yards of offseason production between Price, Riemersma, and Centers. The onus is on wheover they replaced at FB, TE, and Josh Reed to take up that extra. A frankly, it shouldnt surprise anyone if they fail to next season.

Josh Reed hasnt exactly been tearing it up, from what I hear. He hasnt had 5 receptions yet this offseason, and obviously hasnt looked like Price did. I dont even know who the other guys are.

They're going to a more run oriented offense, but with who? For example, we're a run oriented offense. Henry is a good back, but he cant do it by himself. For example, we had like 700 yards last season rushing that Ricky didnt run on. Who is going to fill in those gaps for them? Olandis Gary is susposedly on his way out, and McGahee still aint playing for a while. How much more can you afford to run fumbling bumbling Henry, anyway? And can he handle the extra planning against him now that they have less of a passing game?

that sounds like a lot of wishful thinking disgusting....address your own team first....your receiving corps rivals some of the worst in the league, you automatically assume ricky will rush for another 1800 yards, your offensive line is shaky, your lb corps is paper thin, and you have the hardest december schedule....good luck:lol:

Our offensive line was more shaky last year, we are resting Ricky throught the preseason and giving him more snaps this year then last when we used to take him out on 3rd downs for the first 2/3rds of the season which we aren't doing now. Our LB corps is STRONGER then last year and we've always had a tough december schedule.

Nice try though.

well, when you are constantly 10 points behind, like our defense always put us in, you have to throw, and teams know this...

If that's not crazy I don't know what is.

Now I wonder if Pennington will even be back by the second game with them.

The AFC East just got a little easier today. Jets were a 1-4 team before Pennington took over.

Brady hasn't torn an achilles lately, has he? What about Bledsoe?

Where did he hear this? Well, I read it here about Gary.

Teams in the market for a running back have two they can choose from as Buffalo's Olandis Gary and Pittsburgh's Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala were being shopped around this week. Both teams are asking for a third-round pick in exchange for the players, a price that is far too high. If somebody will part with a seventh-round pick for either of those two, look for them to be traded. If not, they face being released, especially Gary, who has not impressed in Buffalo.


Good job :lol:
Wasn't this guy supposed to make a huge impact in the running game for you guys?

Deuce was doing just as good as Ricky before he sustained his ankle injury...but he played through it.

You got slower on defense, that's my point

I'd take a little bit of speed for some turnovers.

Anyway, here is your link http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/6578987

Read everything on the page. It mentions Madison (who we know you oh so love) and it mentions the Dolphins recieving core as well.

yeah, a couple minutes before you posted it, I read something on it at KFFL.com

and that's what the Bills are doing, indirectly, but yes...we are giving up speed(Price)...for turnovers(a new defense, cause last year's was last in the NFL in takeaways)
