    Leonhard Returns to Practice, Sanchez Wins Award

    S Jim Leonhard returned to practice this morning after missing yesterday's session with a knee injury. CB Lito Sheppard (quad) and CB Donald Strickland (ankle), however, did not suit up at all. It's becoming more and more obvious that neither is going to play this Sunday against the Saints. CB Corey Ivy, a former Raven, was brought in for a tryout last week and will most likely be signed before Sunday's game. LB Larry Izzo and OL Wayne Hunter, both of whom missed yesterday's session as well, returned to practice this morning.

    LB Jason Trusnik was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for games played the third week of the 2009 season (September 27-28). This is Trusnik’s first career Player of the Week Award.

The Jets scored five plays later to take a 14-0 lead. Through Week 3, Trusnik is tied for a team-high six tackles on special teams. The last Jet to win AFC Special Teams Player of the Week was RB/KR Leon Washington in 2008 (Week 11).
