Sheldon Richardson's return to the lineup saw the fourth year defensive lineman play 75% of the snaps last night for the Jets. It isn't anything extreme, but Richardson is a guy who has regularly been in the 80's and 90's. Perhaps the Jets were easing him back into things as he returned from his one game suspension to start the season.
Richardson's return was always going to take snaps away from somebody, and that someone unsurprisingly seems to be rookie Lawrence Thomas. Thomas went from playing around half the snaps in Week 1 to just 3 against the Bills.
In other news, Darron Lee continues to look like the starter. He got 41 snaps compared with Erin Henderson's 11. First round picks tend to gain snaps more than they lose them so right now it feels as though the job is Lee's to lose. He would have to play his way onto the bench for Henderson to see more time.
