NY Jets Training Camp Report 8/2

The Jets had another training camp practice today in Cortland.  Once again ESPN covered the team for portions of the morning session.

Today the Jets worked on their goal-line and short yardage situations.  The moment we’ve all been waiting for finally arrived as the team unveiled some of the “wildcat” package for Tim Tebow who was considered “live”, he could be hit, during the goal-line drills.

While Mark Sanchez and Tebow had good passing numbers the offensive line seemed to struggle against the rush giving up many sacks led by Aaron Maybin.

Sione Po’uha sustained a cut to the forehead yesterday so he is sitting out this morning’s practice along with LaRon Landry.  Landry is still nursing an Achilles injury and will practice fully some days then be limited on others, so he did not re-injure himself. Offensive linemen Vladimir Ducasse left practice early yesterday with a leg injury and running back Joe McKnight didn’t participate due to an illness but both are suited up today.

The Jets may officially have to change their name to “the walking wounded” as many players are out of practice with injuries.  The wide receiving core has been hit hardest with Santonio Holmes, Jeremy Kerley and Chaz Schilens all out.

Coach Rex Ryan has not been happy with the number of “soft tissue” injuries which has left the Jets shorthanded at certain positions.  With all these injured players the team is trying out some free agent receivers and defensive backs this morning in an effort to bring more healthy bodies to camp.

WR Jordan White, allowed to wear pads tomorrow, is practicing on punt returns.  White not only led Division 1-A in receptions and yards but had 17 punt returns for 222 yards, a 13.1 yard-pre-return average, for Western Michigan last season.

Running back Bilal Powell continues to have an impressive camp while round six pick Terrance Ganaway struggled today.
