The Snap: Training camp, Day 3
By Rich Cimini
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The Jets are on the field at 10 a.m. Once again, they will be in shells, not pads.
Here are the storylines:
1. Missing pieces: Injuries to RB Chris Ivory (hamstring) and CB Aaron Berry (season-ending knee injury), along with the absence of RB Mike Goodson (did not report) and a likely rest day for TE Kellen Winslow, will create reps for some of the younger players. RB John Griffin, CB Isaiah Trufant and TE Hayden Smith, among others, have to be ready. CB Ellis Lankster is getting work in the nickel due to the contract dispute with top pick Dee Milliner.
2. QB competition: Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith will be trying to build off a positive first day. Rex Ryan is used to having his defense dominate in the early stages of camp, so he'll be highly motivated to rebound after a so-so first day. That could mean extra blitzing.
3. Idzik speaks: New GM John Idzik doesn't reveal too much when he speaks to the media, but he's scheduled to chat with reporters -- and it's worth a listen because, frankly, he doesn't do it that often. Maybe he can shed some light on the Goodson situation (doubtful) and the Milliner dispute.
