Marker Moulds unlikely to play against Jets [12:00 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It may take a minor miracle for Moulds to play. He didn't practice Wednesday and appeared to walk stiffly around the field. He went directly into the training room for treatment after practice and did not comment.'

Marker Practice is on the horizon for McGahee [11:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"When our doctors say he's cleared, I'm anxious to watch him practice," coach Gregg Williams said Wednesday. "But he's got to be cleared first."'

Marker No-huddle offense could return on limited basis [11:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills tried to run no-huddle on the first series versus the Bengals but were chased off the field too fast to keep it up. Bledsoe likes it. Expect them to do it again on a limited basis.'

Marker Moulds doubtful; Coleman is ready [11:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'No, Moulds did not practice, yes, he is feeling a little better, and yes, hes going to take it day by day and see what happens. It made for great comedy, but when the laughing stopped, the cold reality remained that it is not likely that Moulds will play Sunday in New York against the Jets.'

Marker Schobel lives for a sack [11:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It was good to get a turnover and we scored on it, so that was good, but Id trade it in for a sack/forced fumble, said Schobel, who picked off Jon Kitnas deflected pass because the Bills were in a zone blitz with Schobel in pass coverage.'

Marker McGahee's return is up to Bills' doctors [11:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Buffalo Bills running back and top draft pick Willis McGahee has received medical clearance from his personal surgeon to start practicing next week. The Buffalo Bills said hold everything.'

Marker Abraham Likely to Sit Out Despite Offering Apology [11:54 AM]
New York Times reports: 'Abraham will not lose his salary if he is benched. Edwards's options are limited by N.F.L. rules that allow only the league to suspend or fine a player for an incident involving alcohol or drugs.'

Marker Pennington Back on Oct. 26 [11:53 AM]
New York Times reports: 'Doctors originally estimated that Pennington would be out 10 to 12 weeks, which at the earliest would have made him available for the game on Nov. 2 against the Giants.'

Marker Abraham takes his punishment [11:52 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'The Jets can circumvent the suspension by deactivating Abraham, the likely scenario. (He still would get his weekly game check, $95,000.) Bryan Thomas, the disappointing No. 1 pick from 2002, would replace Abraham as the starting right end.'

Marker Pennington practices [11:51 AM]
New York Daily News reports: '"You saw him practice; I can't hide it anymore," Edwards joked. "I can't keep him in the (practice) bubble forever. Poor guy needs a tan anyway."'

Marker 'I'll take it on the chin' [11:50 AM]
New York Post reports: '"I wanted to see everybody in their face when we talked and I apologized," said Abraham, who crashed his 2003 Hummer Sept. 30 in Baldwin and pleaded guilty Tuesday to a reduced charge of driving while impaired. "Instead of doing it as a team thing, that doesn't seem as personal to me. I had different things to say to different people so I talked to everybody one-on-one."'

Marker Chad upgrade a symbol of progress [11:49 AM]
New York Post reports: 'In NFL terms, "doubtful" means the player has a 25-percent chance to play. Pennington, though he's starting to practice a little bit, will not play Sunday. The earliest hope is Oct. 26 against the Eagles in Philadelphia and the more realistic return date is Nov. 2 against the Giants, the team that sent him into surgery and rehab in the first place.'

Marker Chad Takes Another Step [11:47 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'While Vinny Testaverde ran the starting offense against the scout defense, Pennington took snaps from Lott about 20 yards behind the line to mimic the plays. Pennington, who had surgery on his dislocated left wrist 6 1/2 weeks ago, did not work with the scout team in seven-on-seven drills. He is expected to do that today.'

Marker Punishment Drill [11:46 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"It's Herm's decision," Abraham said. "Whatever he says, I'll live by. It has not been discussed whether or not I'm going to play."'

Marker Harsh reality makes Abraham feel fortunate [11:45 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: '"Then, right before I was getting on the plane to come back here, I saw that story and it kind of showed me that maybe it was for a reason that nothing happened to anybody. I wasn't hurt and no one else was hurt. Sure, the Hummer was (damaged) and the pole, but they can be repaired. Someone's life can't."'

Marker Pennington is no longer 'out' [11:44 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Edwards confirmed Pennington had been throwing in the team's practice bubble for three days last week before he threw in front of the media on Monday. "It's day-to-day," Edwards said, flashing a smile. "He's showing a lot better. It's good to see him out there throwing the football."'

Marker Bills coach likes his new defense [11:43 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'He's one of the premier players in this league and he played like a tremendous warrior this last game (an OT victory against Cincinnati). Even when he strained his groin on the last play, he did it on the elevation to the catch and he still ran and took the ball down inside the 10 yard line. He's one of those few guys that when he steps on the field, people can argue that he's the best player out there.'

Marker Abraham awaits reprimand [11:42 AM]
Bergen Record reports: '"I just apologize to the fans, my family, coaches," Abraham said, "everybody around who has any kind of feeling for me and knows anything about me and hopefully knows what kind of person I am."'

Marker Jets odds and ends [11:41 AM]
Bergen Record reports: 'But let's not get carried away. Edwards said Pennington will not play against the Bills.'

Marker Jets' Thomas sees opportunity [11:40 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: '"When they draft you and the fans and everybody expect things from you, how can you prove to them if you aren't getting an opportunity?'' said Thomas, adding his playing time is more adequate this season. "Sixty percent of last year I was getting like one snap a game. I can't do anything with that. You have to accept all the media stuff and the fans saying, 'He's not doing that.' They don't know, they don't watch the individual players and say, 'Well, he got one snap a game, so we can't talk about him, we can't say stuff about him.' '''

Marker Pennington might be back earlier than expected [11:39 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: '"These rumors as soon as he started throwing ... better than what my wife asked me yesterday,'' Edwards said. "She just figured he was playing. She had a great point. 'Only given up two sacks all year, why can't he play?' Honey, lay down, you're tired. But you know, that's my wife. She asks a crazy question like that when you come home at 1 in the morning. That's all right. It's a bye week, you'll be OK in the morning.'''

Marker How much do the Jets really want it? [11:38 AM]
Asbury Park Press/Home News Tribune reports: 'That 1992 Chargers team is the only NFL team to lose its first four games and come back to make the playoffs. I was in the locker room at Giants Stadium two Sundays ago after Bill Parcells and the Dallas Cowboys dropped the Jets to 0-4, and I didn't see a tear shed. Nor did I sense any outrage at the fact that the season was slipping into oblivion. And that's the biggest indictment of the 2003 Jets.'

Marker Moulds doubtful because of groin strain [11:37 AM]
AP reports: 'Without Moulds, the Bills would have to elevate two untested rookies: undrafted free agent Clarence Coleman, fourth-round pick Sam Aiken. Coleman doesn't have a catch this season, Aiken has been inactive.'

Marker Urgency in McGahee's step as he approaches first practice [11:36 AM]
AP reports: '''I think you all are getting more excited than me,'' McGahee said, laughing, to a group of reporters. ''Yeah, I'm getting excited. I'm looking forward to see how things are going to turn out.'''

Marker NFL pushes back start time for Redskins-Bills game [11:35 AM]
AP reports: 'The move was made to accommodate television schedules.'

Marker Pennington upgraded to doubtful but will not play [11:34 AM]
AP reports: '''I don't know if he's ahead, but for him to go out and throw and for all of mankind to put it on TV like we found our lost son, I have to say something,'' Edwards said. ''His status is doubtful. It's not like I can hide it any longer. He's been throwing for three days.'''

Marker Bradway taking heat for Jets slow start [11:33 AM]
AP reports: 'Bradway seems the perfect target after an offseason in which the Redskins plucked four players including top receiver Laveranues Coles from the team. Bradway also traded two No. 1 picks to move up and take defensive tackle Dwayne Robertson, who has not had an immediate impact.'

Marker Buffalo (3-2) at NY Jets (0-4) [11:32 AM]
AP reports: '``The bottom line is the running game isn't getting it done right now,'' said Martin, who has run for just 197 yards and no touchdowns in four games.'

Marker Moulds doubtful for Sunday's game versus Jets [11:31 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Moulds suffered the injury during this past Sunday's overtime win against Cincinnati. On the game-winning drive, he caught a 28-yard pass and landed awkwardly after being tackled by Bengals safety Kevin Kaesviharn.'
