Cedric Houston vs Derrick Blaylock (C-mart on PUP list)

Martin placed on physically unable to perform list

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Jets running back Curtis Martin won't practice when training camp opens Friday because of a lingering knee injury.

Martin was placed on the physically unable to perform list Thursday, along with receiver Justin McCareins and center Trey Teague. The 33-year-old Martin had arthroscopic surgery last December to clean out his right knee, then was limited during minicamp last month.

Though the surgery wasn't considered invasive, it has taken Martin some time to recover. Martin and coach Eric Mangini were unavailable for comment Thursday, when players reported for camp.

Martin, who ranks fourth all-time on the NFL rushing list with 14,101 yards, reworked his contract so he could return for a 12th season. Last year, Martin gained only 735 yards in 12 games - the first time in his career he failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark

With Martin out, the majority of the reps will go to Derrick Blaylock, Cedric Houston and rookie Leon Washington.

McCareins hurt his foot during minicamp, and Teague broke his left ankle during offseason workouts. Teague is still in a walking boot. The Jets also placed defensive back Rayshun Reed on the PUP list. The moves are a formality, and the players can be moved back onto the active roster at any time.

In other moves Thursday, the Jets signed first-round pick Nick Mangold and second-round selection Kellen Clemens, getting all their players signed in time for the start of training camp.

Mangold, a center out of Ohio State, is penciled in to start with fellow rookie D'Brickashaw Ferguson. The No. 4 overall pick signed his deal Wednesday night. Clemens, a quarterback out of Oregon, is expected to compete for the starting job with Chad Pennington and Patrick Ramsey.

General manager Mike Tannenbaum has an excellent record of getting every draft pick into camp since he started negotiating contracts in 1997. He has signed every first-round pick on time, except for a brief absence from James Farrior in 1997.

The team also signed OL Pete McMahon and waived FB Luke Lawton.


So, if C-mart is out, who has better value? Derrick Blaylock or Cedric Houston? [/code]

Houston for sure. I would assume Blaylock would be the 3rd down back. :-? You also have to factor in Leon Washington.

Don't worry about C-Mart. He'll be back. There's no need to put him in training camp regardless of how small the injury is. Blaylock's value remains the same whatever that may be to you.

Benson has the best value here. As of now he's a good shot to split 50/50 with Thomas Jones. And there has been mention of Thomas Jones being traded to Denver for Lelie. If that were the case.....

.......draft TJ! :-B

Unless we're talking about fantasy pre-season football, C-Mart is the guy to have on your roster (and what a great value he is every year since he was washed up in most people's eyes about four thousand-yard seasons ago), not Blaylock or Benson-I-mean-Houston.
