Terrell Owens tells New York Jets 'I'm available'


This nightmare start to the New York Jets' season keeps growing a little darker.

The Jets' Pro Bowl center, Nick Mangold, left Monday night's 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans in the third quarter with an ankle injury, although he was able to return. The Jets' offense continues to thin out, however.

Wide receiver Clyde Gates left the game with a shoulder injury. Chaz Schilens doesn't look like an NFL-calber receiver, much less a starter. Jeremy Kerley is a No. 4 receiver masquerading as a top option.

It's desperation time for Gang Green. How desperate?
