The Patriots end has been an integral part to the their success this year, stepping in on a one-year contract and making plays against the run and rushing the passer. With Ty Warren out for the year and Myron Pryor missing practice this week, Warren could be huge. Making it more crucial is that Jets starting right tackle Damien Woody was put on I.R. on Wednesday with an Achilles injury. Backup Wayne Hunter must step in. If the Jets don't get the running game going, pass protection against Warren, and perhaps Pryor, gets that much tough.
