NY Jets Training Camp

Jets Scuffle vs Redskins; Darnold Takes 1st Team Reps

Darnold, McCown, Bridgewate

The Jets are in Richmond Virginia for a week of joint practices with the Washington Redskins. We have a longer recap, with discussion, of the JetsCamp practice in our forums. On Thursday the Jets and Skins will play a preseason game but the tempers seemed to flare up today. Here are some highlights.




The biggest story of the day, the fights aside, was Sam Darnold taking first team reps. Coming off his strong showing in the preseason opener Brian Costello expects Sam Darnold to start preseason game # 2.

During a joint practice with the Redskins, the rookie quarterback took more reps overall and more with the starting offense than both Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater. Is that an indication Darnold will be the Jets’ starter on Thursday night when the Jets and Redskins face off?

“It’s no indication,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said. “Just getting him caught up on some things.”
