A few nuggets from the Jets' Saturday morning open practice that drew more than 1,700 people to the team's training facility in Florham Park:

If Kellen Clemens loses the much balleyhooed quarterback competition, he might have spot on Rex Ryan's defense. Clemens made the "best tackle of training camp without question" (according to Ryan) when he undercut Eric Smith on a lateral drill. Clemens insists he slipped when he went low on Smith. Ryan got a chuckle out of it.

Just how similar are the Ravens' and Jets' defenses? As former Ravens LB Bart Scott said, "They do what they do. Oddly enough, they do what we do."

Added RB Leon Washington: "It's the Ravens against the Ravens."

Rex Ryan believes rookie RB Shonn Greene is "part battering ram and part finesse." The rookie coached also admitted that Greene "could be a special back."

Third-string QB Erik Ainge will play the majority of the second half and rookie Chris Pizzotti will get one series, Ryan said.

Alan Faneca (finger) and Damien Woody (head) practiced, but will not play.

CB Darrelle Revis participated in red-zone drills, but hasn't been cleared to by the team trainer to run more than 30 yards on his sore hamstring.

C Nick Mangold practiced and is "probable." Ryan said he will likely play, but wasn't sure for how long.

NT Kris Jenkins (calf) didn't practice and is out.
