Jets wake-up call: Day 4
By Jane McManus
CORTLAND, NY -- The New York Jets are starting to get into the rhythm of life here in Cortland. A day of contact on Saturday may have been the biggest reminder that football is coming. This will be the Jets last practice before getting their first day off during training camp.
Here are a few things to look for:
- Rookie safety Calvin Pryor left Saturday’s camp early with a head injury, and there was no update on his condition when Rex Ryan addressed the media Saturday afternoon. Expect an update, but the biggest clue will be whether Pryor is on the field again, even to condition on the sideline.
- Ryan has been working offensive linemen Brian Winters and Oday Aboushi on each side of the line, but it may not be long before starter Willie Colon is off the PUP. Colon has said he expects to return soon, and Ryan echoed that on Saturday. How soon is soon?
- The weather has been great in Cortland. Geno Smith said it was like practicing in air conditioning compared to New Jersey this time of year, but that could change Sunday. The Jets could practice in rain, although lightning would clear the field.
