Gholston Out, Lowery Starts

Just a quick update from today, Vernon Gholston didn't practise for the third straight day, and will be inactive for the game against the Jaguars this weekend. Also Rex said that the team will be starting with Dwight Lowery opposite Revis, but Lito Sheppard will play:

"Even though he’s practiced fully, I don’t think Lito’s all the way back yet," Rex Ryan said. "We’ll evaluate and see how much he plays. I think we’ll start Dwight Lowery."

Rex also commented that Dwight Lowery and or Brad Smith may be returning kicks on Sunday

"We’re always going to do what’s in the best interest of us," Ryan said. "If we think Lowery or Brad Smith gives us the best opportunity to be successful in our return game, then that’s what we’ll do."

Not sure we should be giving up on Miller just yet, he certainly has the talent but he was out of practise for the Miami game, and if he is not returning kicks then he shouldn't be on the team. His defensive ability is limited and someone like Carrol gives us a better option on kick coverage
