QB Teddy Bridgewater wouldn't directly address trade speculation, saying he wants to keep his focus on the Jets. But know this: He absolutely feels he should be a starter in the league. Alluding to his surgically repaired knee, he said Thursday night's game — in which he got banged around a little — served as "the final barrier I had to knock down."

Jets QB Sam Darnold responds to Redskins CB Josh Norman, who praised the rookie after a joint practice last week. Darnold said it's "cool" to have the respect of a player of Norman's caliber. He also said Norman offered some tips after the game — i.e. ways in which a corner can get "tells" from a quarterback by his reading his footwork.

A couple of wrinkles in the Jets' QB rotation in practice: Once again, Sam Darnold got the bulk of the reps, but his first-team share wasn't as lopsided as it had been in recent days. He took 11 with the first team (34 total). Josh McCown got 10 with the starters (19 total), meaning this was the first time in camp that he worked with backups. Interesting. Teddy Bridgewater had the lightest day — two with the first team, 14 overall. What does it all mean? I'd be surprised if Darnold doesn't start against the Giants. It's a fluid situation because I do believe there's a chance they could trade Bridgewater. Todd Bowles said he has "some ideas in my head" about who he'll pick as the starter, but will wait until after the last two preseason games. As for Saturday's practice, all three QBs were on fire — a combined 27-for-36.

Jets injury update: CB Trumaine Johnson missed practice with a strained hamstring, which occurred Thursday night against the Redskins. He was held out as a precaution, said Todd Bowles, who is "hopeful" that Johnson will be back soon. Johnson was their marquee addition on defense; they can't afford to lose him. Positive news: LT Kelvin Beachum and RG Brian Winters returned to the field, albeit on a very limited basis. Basically, they participated in the walk-through. Bowles said "they're close" to returning to action "We're just playing them slow. We're working them in slowly. We're going to take our time with them." Bowles is optimistic they will be ready for Week 1.

Pat Shurmur gave an obligatory "we'll see" when asked about playing Odell Beckham Jr. in the third preseason game. The star WR didn't play in the first two exhibition contests and hasn't played in a game since breaking his ankle in October.

The Giants plane last night didn't arrive in Detroit until after 2 am. They got back around 5 am. "Sleep is overrated" according to coach Pat Shurmur. Only injured players needed to come in Saturday for treatment.

The Yankees' Miguel Andujar now has 36 doubles this season and is on pace to finish with 47. The American League record for rookies is 47 — set by Boston's Fred Lynn, who won the AL MVP award as a rookie in 1975. The overall big-league mark for rookies is 52, set by Johnny Frederick of the Brooklyn Robins in 1929.

It was an evening of redemption for Davis Webb. After a shaky outing last week, he bounced back in a big way against the Detroit Lions. Webb went 14-of-20 passing for 140 yards with a touchdown while playing the entire first half. He showed a strong command to the offense and an ability to fit throws into tight windows. He had a QB rating of 106.3 after a 49.4 last week. This was much needed. Webb didn't play last year and likely won't play much next week in preseason game No. 3. That will be Eli Manning's opportunity to get ready for the season. Manning didn't play vs. the Lions. But Webb at least gave the Giants hope they have a trustworthy backup this year and potential for more in the future.

Tonight is going to be the Davis Webb show with Eli Manning unlikely to play. Pretty big opportunity for the young QB. Needs to bounce back strong. No Odell Beckham or Saquon Barkley either but should get to play behind starting OL + with weapons like Evan Engram/Sterling Shepard.

Odell Beckham Jr. making quite the entrance. Always having fun. Not expecting him to play tonight vs. Lions though.
