Jets News:

There is not a lot going on in Jets-land today. Players have returned from injury and there is nothing yet about what is ailing Andrew Copp. Hopefully it is not another concussion. As for everyone else, it is business as usual with a game tonight. It will be interesting to see if they keep on scratching Sami Niku or if they will play him against the extremely bad and struggling Chicago Blackhawks.
