During their second day of training camp at Florham Park this afternoon, it was learned that second-year running back Elijah McGuire, who left yesterday’s session with a foot injury, did in fact have surgery.
Jets RB Elijah McGuire broke his foot but the injury is not considered season ending, per source.

Per NFL insider Adam Schefter, the injury is not believed to be season-ending which is good news for McGuire who had earned high praise from running backs coach Stump Mitchell earlier this off-season.
With McGuire on the shelf, the Jets hosted free agent running backs Alfred Morris and Orleans Darkwa. The Jets were rumored to have interest in Darkwa as a free agent earlier this off-season.
