We told you the other day that Jets CB Darrelle Revis (hamstring) probably wouldn’t play this Sunday vs. Buffalo but that LB Calvin Pace – who’s missed the entire season so far with a foot injury – might have a chance to do so.

But as Rapid Reporter Lisa Zimmerman writes, neither participated in practice today as both worked with the team’s conditioning staff.

But there was some good news from Jets practice.

In a successful prank, QB Mark Sanchez walked up behind offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and yanked down his shorts. Where I come from, we called that “a shank,” though curiously my wife grew up calling it a “rip down.”

While we’re talking about big-name players who aren’t practicing today, Baltimore’s Ray Rice (knee contusion) also isn’t participating. But here at the Facts & Rumors blog, we hate bringing you bad practice news without some good news. So, here it is: OT Jared Gaither (back) practiced for the first time since Aug. 5, writes the Baltimore Sun.

UPDATE (1:57 p.m.):
Dealing with this yanking-down-the-shorts issue, I issued an instant Twitter poll to see what other people called it.

Some interesting answers, including “Pants’d” and “Dropdrawls” and, by far the most popular answer, “Drooping" (that must be a Cincinnati thing).

One guy said his buddies called it “free ballin,” and when it happened, everybody in the vicinity started singing, “Free Ballin’” to the tune of Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin.’” Which is pretty awesome.

My favorite response, though, came from @nvanholt. “I call it hilarious.” Great point.
