CORTLAND, N.Y. -- After a mandatory day off, the New York Jets will be back on the practice field at 10 a.m. This starts a stretch of four consecutive days of practice, followed by the annual Green & White scrimmage Saturday night.

A few things I'll be watching on Tuesday:
  • The spotlight will be on the wide receivers, who endured a rough practice Sunday. There were several dropped passes, including drops by sure-handed receivers David Nelson and Jeremy Kerley. Stephen Hill and rookie Shaq Evans also contributed to the total. You'd like to think they'll rebound with a strong day. The Jets are still waiting for one of the rookies to deliver a "wow" performance.
  • Rookie safety Calvin Pryor is three days removed from suffering a concussion. He must satisfy the league's protocol before returning to the field. It's so early in camp that it's pointless to make any predictions; it's not like we're in the regular season. Rookie tight end Jace Amaro, who aggravated a sore knee Sunday, expects to practice.
  • Will offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg change up the quarterback reps, creating more balance between Geno Smith and Michael Vick? You know we'll be counting. To this point, three out of four first-team reps have gone to Smith.
  • A programming note: The Jets will be featured on ESPN's Training CampSCenter, with updates from Jets camp throughout the day. It'll bring back thoughts of 2012, when it was all Tim Tebow, all the time. Ah, memories.
