FLORHAM PARK, N. Josh Sitton Dolphins Jersey .J. -- Joe McKnight and Braylon Edwards are suddenly out of work, surprising cuts by the New York Jets on Monday. For McKnight, a backup running back and the teams primary kick returner the last two seasons, its the latest setback in a tumultuous summer. Edwards departure in his third stint with the Jets could put his career in jeopardy. "Both those guys, both Joe and Braylon, had tremendous moments for us," coach Rex Ryan said. "They contributed a lot to our franchise, without question, but were trying to move forward." Veteran guard Stephen Peterman, who was signed in the off-season and appeared in line to start at left guard until recently, was also released as the Jets reduced their active roster to 75 players by the NFLs Tuesday deadline. Also cut were: running back Chad Spann, offensive linemen Patrick Ford and Trey Gilleo, wide receivers Joe Collins, Marcus Rucker, K.J. Stroud and Rahsaan Vaughn, linebacker Sean Progar-Jackson, defensive backs Donnie Fletcher and Bret Lockett, punter Ryan Quigley and long snapper Patrick Scales. McKnight, the teams fourth-round draft pick in 2010, was involved in a series of incidents this summer that included an arrest for unpaid traffic warrants, a concussion, migraine headaches, a few questionable posts on Twitter and some tension with the media. He was active for the first time this preseason on Saturday night after being sidelined by a concussion, but did not play. In an interview with The Associated Press last week, McKnight said he didnt feel comfortable about his roster status. "I have to get on the field this week, these next two games, and then prove something," he said last Tuesday. "Ive got to make sure these next few practices and these last two preseason games are real good. Ive just got to get out there on the field and make some plays. I just need to do this." He never made it onto the playing field against the Giants, even on kickoffs, which seemed curious at the time. McKnight has two career kickoff returns for touchdowns, including a team-record 107-yard return in 2011 that stands as the longest play in Jets history. Kyle Wilson, Clyde Gates, Jeremy Kerley and even Antonio Cromartie might now serve as the teams kick returners. In May, McKnight angrily responded to speculation that his time with the Jets could soon be up, saying: "Theyll have to kill me to take my spot." McKnight didnt pass his conditioning test the day before the team reported for training camp to SUNY Cortland last month, but did so the next day. He was arrested in New Jersey on a day off from camp last month for outstanding traffic warrants, and later released on bail. McKnight then injured his head during practice -- he confirmed it was a concussion although the Jets never officially called it a concussion -- and was cleared to return a few days later, wearing a red no-contact jersey. He refused to answer questions that day about the concussion or arrest, repeatedly saying, "Im not getting into that right now." Two weeks ago, McKnight was carted to the locker room, wearing an oxygen mask, after banging his head on the ground during a play. He had taken a knee three times on his way to the field earlier that day while dealing with a migraine headache. Later that morning, he angrily responded on Twitter to someone he thought was a reporter who wrote that he should get released. The final straw for the Jets might have come last week when McKnight, refusing to speak to the media, gave a reporter one of the team-issued media "bridges" cards that was given to players with suggested talking points for interviews. "Im over it all, but for whats going on, I know who my enemies are and whos with me," he told the AP last week. "Ive just got to address those people accordingly." Edwards was dealing with a leg injury that kept him out of the teams preseason game against the Giants on Saturday night. Edwards was signed just before training camp began last month, marking his third tenure with the Jets. He had been given rest days throughout camp as a precaution after dealing with recent knee issues, but the Jets appear to have moved on. The team signed Mohamed Massaquoi last week to add depth to the receiving corps, and had two catches for 36 yards while Edwards wasnt active. The 30-year-old Edwards played his first four seasons in Cleveland, and was acquired by the Jets in 2009. He signed with San Francisco as a free agent in 2011, and was claimed late last season off waivers by the Jets from Seattle. "Will we close our door on a player returning? No, I dont believe so," Ryan said. "But right now, this is what we felt was in the best interest of our football team overall." Peterman was signed in April after spending the last seven seasons with Detroit. The improved play of Vladimir Ducasse and rookie Brian Winters at left guard made him expendable. Peterman was also working a bit at centre to potentially back up Nick Mangold. A.J. Derby Dolphins Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Durham Smythe Jersey .

The Swedish mens hockey team capitalized on a quick start and some shaky opposing goaltending to skate to a 4-2 win over the Czech Republic in their opening game of the Olympic tournament at the Bolshoy Ice Dome on Wednesday. Ottawa Senators star defenceman Erik Karlsson scored two goals while his defensive partner Oliver Ekman-Larsson added two assists. Henrik Zetterberg and Patrik Berglund had the other two goals for the Swedes, who jumped to an early 3-0 lead thanks to some suspect goaltending by Czech starter Jakub Kovar. Head coach Alois Hadamczik made the surprising decision to not even dress the teams only NHL goaltender for the teams stiffest test of the preliminary round. Winnipegs Ondrej Pavelec was scratched in favour of KHL goalies Alexander Salak and Jakub Kovar. Kovar got the start, which backfired horribly when he let in three questionable goals before being pulled early in the second and replaced by Salak, who let in the Swedes fourth goal before the Czechs got on the board. Salak settled down after that and kept the Czech Republic in the game, and Marek Zidlicky and Jaromir Jagr scored two quick goals midway through the second period to spark the Czechs. But the Czech Republic couldnt put any more past Swedish goalie Henrik Lundqvist, who kept the lead intact while the Czechs outshot the SSwedes 15-5 in the third. Dan Marino Dolphins Jersey. . Lundqvist made 23 saves for the win, while Kovar and Salak combined for 25 stops in the loss. Swedens next game in Group C is against Switzerland, while the Czech Republic faces Latvia, both on Friday. Quick start from Swedes Sweden carried the play for most of the first period, capitalizing on a couple miscues by Kovar to go ahead 2-0 after 20 minutes. Karlsson scored the opening goal of the Olympic tournament from the point on a delayed penalty halfway through the period, as Kovar struggled to deal with the traffic in front of his net and saw the Swedes shot go through his glove. Berglund made Kovars opening 20 minutes worse by scoring Swedens second goal from a bad angle at 13:17, firing a shot right through the Czech goaltender from outside the left faceoff dot. It didnt get any better for Kovar in the second. Zetterberg scored on another shot that went through the Czech goalie only 51 seconds in. That goal ended Kovars night after Salak came in to replace him. But the switch didnt matter. Karlsson scored his second of the game with a laser from the point with little over three minutes after Salak made his debut. The Czechs clawed their way back into the contest with goals from Zidlicky and Jagr two minutes apart midway through the second, and pushed the Swedes hard for the remainder of the period.
