Chrebet to be Honored

Chrebet to be Honored

WR Wayne Chrebet has been skipping practices during the bye week to rest his injured knee, but will be active this Saturday, as Hofstra University retires his number.

The ceremony will take place during halftime of the Hofstra Homecoming game against the College of William & Mary. Chrebet was a four-year letterman at Hofstra from 1991-1994, and amassed 150 receptions for 2,297 yards and 31 touchdowns. He graduated holding six University records, and tied Jerry Rice's 1-AA record for touchdown receptions in a game with five (since been broken). In his eighth NFL season, Chrebet has brought national recognition to his Alma Mater.

 

LG Dave Szott, who has been recovering from off-season knee surgery, was able to jog for the first time on Wednesday. Szott has been on the physically-unable-to-perform list this season, but hopes to return by late November. The Jets have missed the veteran's stability at left guard this season, and have a platoon situation going at that position with J.P. Machado, Jonathan Goodwin and Darnell Alford.

 

Rookie DE Bryan Thomas has been struggling in his first NFL season. After an impressive preseason, Thomas has only one sack and one QB pressure thus far. In an effort to shake things up, the rookie shaved his head this week, losing the cornrows he's sported for the last three years.

 

The Jets will have the weekend off, and will return to practice Monday morning.
