Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Austin Seferian-Jenkins' DUI arrest while playing for Tampa Bay. The Jets' tight end, coming off a two-game suspension stemming from the arrest, says he has gone 242 days without alcohol. He hopes his story can serve as an example to others.

After cutting return specialist Kalif Raymond, the Jets will have a new punt returner and kickoff returner Sunday against the Dolphins. Jeremy Kerley and Elijah McGuire are working in both roles in practice. Coach Todd Bowles said he won't make a decision until game day.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins has "got to get in a little better shape. That's to be expected with two weeks off, but he'll get going." Bowles said it's too early to say for sure that Seferian-Jenkins will be active on Sunday against the Dolphins. It would be a surprise if he's not. The Jets have four other tight ends on the roster, but three are dealing with injuries. Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to return from a two-game suspension.

Three offensive starters missed practice for the Jets -- RG Brian Winters (abdomen), WR Robby Anderson (knee) and TE Eric Tomlinson (elbow). They're banged up at tight end, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins is eligible to play this week after a two-game suspension. Winters bears watching because the right guard draws Ndamukong Suh. DE Mo Wilkerson said he's not concerned about his shoulder.

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson said his injured shoulder is "no concern at all."

Jets CEO wants to win, insists team not tanking

New Jets CEO Christopher Johnson said he, not brother Woody, is making the football decisions for the Jets and insisted Wednesday that the team is not tanking so it can draft a top quarterback in 2018.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

New Jets CEO Christopher Johnson spoke to the media for the first time since taking over the team from his older brother, Woody, the new U.S. ambassador to the U.K. Biggest takeaways: Johnson said he doesn't consult with Woody on any football matters. He said he will decide the fates of coach Todd Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan. He said, "We definitely are not tanking." Johnson is excited about the future, yet realistic about the present. He struck the right balance. It was an impressive media debut.

The Jets have waived PR Kalif Raymond, who had a costly muff on Sunday. Strong statement by Todd Bowles.

The Jets have re-signed DL Claude Pelon to the practice squad. He was cut last week after playing in Week 1.

Against the Raiders, the Jets had no sacks, no quarterback hits and only three QB pressures, per ESPN Stats & Info. They blitzed on only eight of Derek Carr's 28 dropbacks. Why didn't they blitz more often? Why couldn't they generate any pressure? The reason is because Carr got rid of the ball in 1.94 seconds on average, the quickest time in the league in Week 2.

NFL's best and worst QBs of Week 2: Josh McCown shines

It might be a little surprising to see a quarterback who lost 45-20 praised, but McCown had two big plays while the game was still close that boosted his Total QBR.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

For fans of 0-2 teams already looking toward 2018: the Jets are the current favorites to land the No. 1 pick in next year's draft, though there are plenty of bad teams lurking behind them that have a shot.

Week 3 NFL Power Rankings: Let's be optimistic

The Falcons shook their 28-3 demons (for now). The Chiefs are living up to the Week 1 hype. Even the Jets have a reason to hope. Here's how our experts stack all 32 teams after two weeks.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets' pass protection seemed solid yesterday, but the stats suggest otherwise. The Raiders defense pressured Josh McCown on 16 of his 32 dropbacks (50%), tied for their highest pressure percentage since 2009. Still, I thought RT Brandon Shell did a decent job against Khalil Mack. LG James Carpenter allowed no QB pressures and LT Kelvin Beachum had one, per Pro Football Focus.
