Game: The Jets and Colts open their preseason with a game at MetLife Stadium on Thursday night.
Time: The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and air on CBS. The game will re-air on SNY at 11 p.m.
Injuries: Calvin Pryor will not play in Thursday’s game, as he continues to recover from a concussion. Shaq Evans will also sit out, as he’s dealing with a “severe” shoulder injury.
Their Previous Meeting: Back when Andrew Luck was a rookie, the Jets bested the Colts 35-9 in Week 6 of the 2012 season. The Jets had four sacks (two by Antonio Allen) and both Stephen and Jason Hill had five yard touchdown catches. RB Shonn Greene had three scores.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comWhat To Watch: Geno Smith will start with the first team, while Michael Vick is expected to get reps in with the first team. Geno will likely play into the second quarter, Rex Ryan said on Wednesday. Tajh Boyd and Matt Simms will continue battling for the No. 3 quarterback position, both expecting to get time on Thursday night.
With Pryor sitting, see how the Jets secondary rotation looks against a fairly good passing offense; watch the one-on-one play as opposed to getting caught up too much in the schemes.
Keep an eye on the first team offensive line. How does the group look with a new right tackle, specifically how sympatico the play is between Willie Colon and Breno Giacomini?
