Jets WR Greg Salas almost seemed surprised by all the fuss.
Sure, he was perhaps the biggest star of the New York Jets' scrimmage Saturday night. But as far as the wide receiver was concerned, there was nothing unusual about his performance.
"This is what I do in practice," Salas said. "I make catches. I make plays in practice and I was glad I could come out here and do the same in this little scrimmage we had."
Salas is part of crowded competition to win a spot in the Jets' receiving corps. He had five catches for 54 yards in the practice that was dominated by the defense. He dropped a pass, too, but that didn't take away from a solid night. Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley have jobs locked up, but Salas is among a group that includes Stephen Hill, David Nelson, Jacoby Ford, Clyde Gates and rookies Jalen Saunders, Shaq Evans and Quincy Enunwa competing for the last three or four spots.

Ford saw limited action last season for Oakland, catching only 13 passes. He was used more on punt and kickoff returns, and figures to handle those chores for the Jets.

Keenan Allen is active, as expected.
Terrelle Pryor, who The Chronicle reported is starting over Matt Flynn, has taken a lot more snaps with Denarius Moore, Rod Streater and Jacoby Ford the last couple of weeks. He already had a strong connection with Streater, a close friend who he worked out with all summer.
It's interesting to note that Pryor and Streater worked out all summer because that tends to have an impact in games. Passing yards will be hard to come by in this offense, but it sounds like Streater might be fantasy relevant in 2013.

Rod Streater opened eyes last season as an undrafted rookie from Temple. A raw player in college, Streater impressed Oakland from minicamps on. He finished his first NFL season with 39 catches.
With Darrius Heyward-Bey released because of salary-cap issues and Jacoby Ford coming off a foot injury, Streater has a chance to start alongside Denarius Moore. Oakland coach Dennis Allen said recently he hopes Streater continues to make strides.
“I want to see him start where he left off, but I want to see continued improvement,” Allen said. “I think the guy's got talent. I think he's a good route-runner. I think he's got good ball skills. I think he'll go up and attack the ball. I think he's a tough kid. I think he believes in a lot of the things I'm looking for in a football player.”
If he starts and the Raiders passing game is decent, Streater should be fantasy relevant in most formats.

Just because Raider wide receiver Jacoby Ford hasn’t practiced or played in a game for three weeks, that doesn’t mean that he won’t play Monday night.
That’s the word from Allen, who apparently is hoping against hope that Ford’s sore left foot will recover within the next 72 hours or so.
“No, it’s not a done deal,” coach Dennis Allen said. “We’re going to hold out and wait until we get closer to game time to go ahead and make that decision. He’s continued to get better. We’ll see where we’re at come gametime.”
