Pretty much everybody is banged up at this point of the season, whether they appear on the injury report or not. The fact Kris Jenkins is still limited is troublesome. His hip does not seem to be responding. Brandon Moore's appearance on the report is a reminder of how lucky the Jets have been with injuries this season. Any recipe for success requires a healthy offensive line. No New York lineman has missed a start. The continuity has built the chemistry. Brad Smith should not dress even if he is healthy. David Clowney brings more to the passing game. If the Jets are desperate to use the Wildcat formation, they can play Leon Washington in lieu of Smith. That is about the only use Smith has that Clowney does not.
