Morning wake-up call: Day 22
By Rich Cimini
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The Jets will conduct their final practice (closed) in Cortland Thursday before breaking camp and returning to Florham Park, N.J.
This marks the end of the Jets' third summer camp in Cortland. It was a long haul, complete with Wildcat paranoia, practice fights, players sniping at each other in the media and, of course, Tebow-mania. Once again, the city of Cortland was terrific, demonstrating true hospitality.
The players will leave Cortland Friday morning, following the Thursday night rookie show. On Saturday night, they face the Giants at MetLife Stadium. Storylines Thursday include WR Santonio Holmes (recovering from rib and back injuries), the quarterbacks (natch) and former Florida RB/Olympic silver medalist Jeff Demps, who's expected to sign with an NFL team. Demps may have an Olympic medal, but the important questions is, can he run the Wildcat?
8 a.m. to 11 a.m. -- Practice
11 a.m. -- Media availability
12:15 p.m. -- Rex Ryan news conference
