Tight end Hayden Smith made a few impressive receptions while TE Jeff Cumberland was excused due to the birth of his new child (A JetNation Congratulations Jeff).  WR Jeremy Kerley looks like he’ll be a vital component in Mornhinweg’s short passing offense:

Running back Mike Goodson returned to practice for the first time since being arrested and he, along with his lawyer, preferred to do his talking on the field:

While Sanchez and Smith fight for the starting job another QB battle is brewing between Greg McElroy and Matt Simms for the number three position:

Looks like the veteran guards are frontrunners right now as Willie Colon and Stephen Peterman take reps with the first string while Vladimir Ducasse runs with the twos:
