Jets coach Rex Ryan talked up Vernon Gholston throughout Hard Knocks like he was going to break out this season. Five months later, Gholston isn’t even one of the Jets’ best 45 players.
Gholston was a surprise healthy scratch for Saturday night’s game against the Colts. Gholston was joined by fellow Hard Knocks favorites Joe McKnight and Vlad Ducasse on the inactive list.
The Colts’ biggest pre-game news comes with an official transaction. They placed starting cornerback Kelvin Hayden on injured reserve. They signed tackle Joe Reitz from the practice squad.
There wasn’t great news for the Colts on the inactive list either. Linebacker Clint Session, listed as questionable, is out.
Also inactive: tackle Ryan Diem, linebacker Clint Session, offensive lineman Jamey Richard, running back Javarris James, safety Al Afalava, guard Jaimie Thomas, defensive tackle Antonio Johnson, and the aforementioned Mr. Reitz.
