08:02 AM ET 10.26 | These days, Bart Scott is wearing a size 13 1/2 cleat on his 12 right foot. There was also padding -- a "pillow," he called it -- and carbon fiber plating near the front that was ripped on one side, courtesy of Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. A hyper-extended big toe, one Scott suffered in Week 3 against the Dolphins on the second play of the game, has forced him to take every measure to box in the massive, swollen toe which is not entirely in its socket. ... Typically, the injury carries a three- to four-week resting period to heal, similar to turf toe. Scott, who has a streak of 119 consecutive games played, has been playing on it ever since. ... Sunday, though, may be the first game a Rex Ryan-coached team has played without Scott at linebacker.

So, we're still talking about Rex Ryan and other people's toes.

A foot injury really has Rex concerned. He's volunteered to personally attend to Scott.

They have struggled to find thread subjects they found as interesting as the Favre stories, but have now discovered the Jests.

How do you hyperextend a toe ? Was someone tugging on it ?

Can't Tebow just, like, heal people? Or does that only work for stuff like leprosy?

That streak should be the least of their concerns.

Ask Rex, he's the expert.

Guess that's better than a hyper-extended taint

Normally I would agree with you, but it's the Jets--what else do they have to be concerned about?
