Jets wake-up call: Day 9

August, 1, 2014
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The New York Jets are on the field at 10 a.m. for their final practice before Saturday's Green & White scrimmage. Story lines we'll be following:
  • We'll have an eye on the two rookie defensive backs, Calvin Pryor and Dexter McDougle. Pryor, cleared for physical activity after suffering a concussion, is getting close to a full return. He has missed four practices, and his availability for the preseason opener next Thursday will be in doubt if he doesn't get back soon. The Jets have only three practices, plus the scrimmage, before facing the Indianapolis Colts. McDougle left practice Thursday with a groin injury, so we'll see where he's at.
  • Will Michael Vick go two straight days working exclusively with the backups? Probably not.
  • Running back Chris Johnson should be back after sitting out a day of team drills. Part of the plan, as Rex Ryan likes to say.
  • Still waiting for one of the rookie wide receivers, Shaq Evans and Jalen Saunders, to have a "wow" practice. Still waiting for injured Quincy Enunwa to just practice, period.
