    Tackle Jeff Otah must pass his physical by Tuesday for the Jets' trade with Carolina to stand. But two days before the deadline, Otah is still not sure if he will pass due to his ailing knee. "I feel better," Otah said. "I don’t really know exactly what the physical is. I'm just trying to get healthy so I can play some football." The former first-round pick by the Panthers has only played four games in the past two seasons. He aggravated his nagging left knee injury again this spring during OTAs with the Panthers. Otah said on Friday that there was fluid in his knee. "It’s getting better. It’s not 100 percent, but that’s what I'm doing right now," Otah said. "All this work on the field, working with the trainers, they're getting me ready."
