"No, there's no reason to think that," Smith said. "He's making progress. You guys see him around here right now. Hopefully that won't be the case.

However, the Jets targeted QB Mark Sanchez in the draft.

QB | David Garrard | Jacksonville Jaguars | Fantasy
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Mike Sims-Walker vented about his frustration after another no-catch game in Week 4, reports The Associated Press. "I know I can play. I know I get open," Sims-Walker said.

It's kind of like it's out of my control. I've just got to roll with the punches for right now." Sims-Walker insisted teams haven't been rolling more coverage or placing their top cornerback on him. Head coach Jack Del Rio placed some of the blame on QB David Garrard, who missed Sims-Walker when he was open against the Indianapolis Colts at times in Week 4.

You may not get as much play on the perimeter but you'll get it running downhill at the defense. (McFadden) has been very productive so we've got to find a way to get that same production but I think Michael's ready to take that load." RB Rock Cartwright will be the backup to Bush if RBs Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Michael Bennett (hamstring) are ruled out.
