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.com

What 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?

Man I really do hope one of these reporters ask Patterson if he watched his tape for this game tomorrow. Talk is cheap

Very happy with no turnovers. He looked calm, and seemed to take what the D gave him. Decent start.

@a57se they called a b.s. drive killing holding call then next play was a bad snap...so instead of 2nd and 5 in fg range it turned into 3rd and 42

@John Ledo 

John, his injury history doesn't allow it !!

He is the true definition of "Gun for Hire" !!

@harold but it was also that false start call in the 1st that they waited for the play to start to call it and the holding call on patterson that was away from all the action...they are prob legit calls its just the way they do it that is so annoying

@a57se @wright5 @UncleJoesJetFarm Yeah it is the exact quote but every team wants to score 7 points. No one is satisfied with 3 points. He prefaced his quote saying we want to score TDs...

Still a bad call.  Hard to overcome 2nd and 25.  But point taken

He looks okay.  Very sure handed.  Needs to get more North and South.  Dancing thinks he is still in college

@Hanknaples @a57se @John Ledo 


One pre-season game does not make him a bust.


Although I must admit I am surprised at how bad he has looked.
