Really bad break today for the Jets -- literally -- as Jim Leonhard collided with Patrick Turner in practice and broke his leg. He's done for the year. This costs the Jets not only one of their starting safeties, but also their main punt returner and the guy who calls defensive signals. Eric Smith replaces him at safety, and I'm guessing Bart Scott will get the radio, but this isn't really good news with the big matchup against New England just three days away.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
