Manish Mehta says the Jets are bracing for life without Mike Devito.

I've been told that the Jets are preparing to play without DL Mike DeVito (knee) tomorrow vs. Chargers.

The signing of Martin Tevaseu to the active roster is the writing on the wall. Why would the Jets beef up their defensive line depth by signing a guy they cut this week unless Devito was not going to go?

I really do like the depth on the defensive line for the Jets. Kenrick Ellis looked very good in his debut. Tevaseu has shown flashes of good play in his limited opportunities. The run defense is struggling, though. There are too many big runs against the unit where somebody is getting blown off the ball. Losing arguably the best run defender on the team when going up against a guy with a power/speed combo like Ryan Mathews is not sounding great.
