    No. 17 of the New York Jets is on the practice field with Gang Green this morning.

    Braylon Edwards, who was arrested Tuesday for driving while intoxicated, is stretching with his teammates, at the Jets home complex in Florham Park, New Jersey.

    A myriad of television cameras is following his every move.

    The Jets, who said they are "very disappointed in Braylon's actions," will not de-activate the player for Sunday's pivotal game with the Dolphins. Instead, General Manager. Mike Tannenbaum said, "he'll be active, but he won't start. Then we have to let the league punishment runs its course."

    D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Vernon Gholston, who were in the car with Edwards early Tuesday morning in Manhattan, are also on the practice field this morning.

    Coach Rex Ryan will address the media this afternoon. It is uncertain if, when and where Edwards, will discuss his arrest.

    The Jets wide receiver had a blood alcohol level of .16, double the. legal limit -- when he was pulled over at 4:47 a.m. by police officers for driving with excessive tinted windows on his white Land Rover.
