The Jets (3-3) take on the Dolphins (3-2) on Sunday in Miami at 1 p.m. Here's what's going on today:
Need to know
The Jets are preparing for the trip to Miami, so there will be no media access at Florham Park on Friday. The entire term, apart from Muhammad Wilkerson, practiced without limitation yesterday, so they are in good shape for the road trip.
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano will preview the game and send his three keys. Follow @RVaccianoSNY on Twitter to keep up with all the happenings.
In case you missed it on TJB
It's starting to seem inevitable that Wilkerson will be gone in less than five months.
Running back Bilal Powell is set to return to action on Sunday in Miami.
Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is making the most of his fresh start with Jets.

Seferian-Jenkins has been a revelation for the Jets this year. It's rare that an under-the-radar player who supposedly tears it up in training camp continues to produce during the regular season as well. However, that's exactly what Seferian-Jenkins has done.
He has caught 14 passes over the last two games, and although he's only averaging 6.6 yards per catch on the season, he's starting to show that he can be a weapon in the red zone, too. When the running game is struggling, it's vital to have a safety valve who can help a team sustain drives and move the chains, but Seferian-Jenkins hasn't just improved his pass catching production; he looks dramatically improved as a blocker too.
The only downside to Seferian-Jenkins' contributions is that rookie Jordan Leggett isn't seeing any action, but Seferian-Jenkins is only 25 himself, so there's no reason he can't be a part of the team's long-term future. There's one major hurdle to overcome though: He'll be a free agent at the end of the season and won't come cheap if he keeps playing like this. That said, the Jets should have plenty of cap room, so hopefully the fact they were prepared to give him a second chance will entice Seferian-Jenkins that this is where he wants to be.
