The New York Jets lost the preseason opener to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football.  An injury to a Jets' player could end up being the biggest loss of the evening.

Versatile offensive lineman Robert Turner suffered a leg injury and had to be carted off of the field.  Turner started at center last night for the injured Nick Mangold.  Turner also plays guard and is a blocking tight end in goal line situations.  It would be a big loss for the Jets if he misses significant time.

Mark Sanchez played well completing 6-of-7 passes for 43 yards.  He completed quick slants to Santonio Holmes and Derrick Mason.  Offensive lineman Vlad Ducasse, the Jets' 2nd-round pick last season, struggled immensely.  He whiffed on a couple of blocks which resulted in Mark Sanchez and Greg McElroy taking some big hits.

Linebacker Bart Scott was briefly injured when his left leg got caught in a pile under a teammates' body.  Scott walked off of the field on his own but did not return.  The Jets had a chance to win the game when Greg McElroy threw a perfect pass in the final minute, but the ball was dropped by wide receiver Michael Campbell.  If you're an undrafted rookie free agent like Campbell, dropping a game-winning pass in the back of the end zone doesn't help your chances of making a squad.

The Jets have lost their opening preseason game for three seasons in a row.  They made it to the AFC Championship Game the last two years.  We'll see if history repeats itself this year.
