New York Jets: Dalton Freeman

Practice report: Sanchez out again

August, 27, 2013
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- It was status quo for the Jets on Tuesday as quarterback Mark Sanchez was not practicing during the portion open to the media.

Sanchez, who suffered a right shoulder injury against the Giants on Saturday, showed up later than most of his teammates, and rode the stationary bike.

The quarterback is listed as day-to-day and he will not play in the team's final preseason game on Thursday against the Eagles. His availability for the season opener is also in doubt, a source told's Rich Cimini.

The Jets were also without cornerback Antonio Cromartie (hip), cornerback Dee Milliner (calf), defensive lineman Kenrick Ellis (back) and center Dalton Freeman (ankle). Cromartie and Milliner were seen riding the stationary bikes.

Running back Mike Goodson, who has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, was at practice for the first time after missing all of training camp. He did some light running on the side, and is currently on the active non-football injury/illness list. During his suspension, Goodson will not be able to practice but can attend team meetings.

Wide receiver Santonio Holmes also practiced for the second straight day. He was taken off the PUP list on Friday, and went through his first practice on Monday.

Holmes has been working his way back from a Lisfranc fracture he suffered against the 49ers on Sept. 30, 2012, and the corresponding surgery. It's still unknown whether he'll be ready for the opener against Tampa Bay on Sept. 8.

Newly signed kicker Dan Carpenter also practiced.
The Jets signed 15 undrafted free agents at the conclusion of the draft. Here's a brief bio on each player, starting with the offense:

Dalton Freeman, C, Clemson: The school's first center in 60-plus years to start as a freshman. Started 49 games in his career, a first-team, all-ACC selection.

Trey Gilleo, OT, Northern Arizona: Started 33 straight games. Listed at 6-foot-6, 280 pounds. Arrived as a 219-pound freshman.

Chris Pantale, TE, Boston College: Hails from Wayne, N.J. Missed the first five games last season with a broken foot. Finished with 21 receptions, 189 yards and two touchdowns.

Mark Popek, G, South Florida: Started two years at left tackle. Won't find many guards taller than him -- 6-foot-7, 299 pounds.

Zach Rogers, WR, Tennessee: Overshadowed by Cordarrelle Patterson and Justin Hunter. Slot receiver. Caught 32 passes for 491 yards and seven touchdowns last season. A real sleeper.

Mike Shanahan, WR/TE, Pitt: No relation to the Redskins' coach. At 6-foot-4, 241 pounds, he likely will be moved to tight end. Highly productive: Finished with 58 receptions, 926 yards and five touchdowns.

K.J. Stroud, WR, Bethune-Cookman: Raised in Brooklyn, spent two years at Rutgers. Nice-sized receiver (6-foot-2), limited by injuries last season -- only 26 catches for 283 yards. Stood out at New Jersey regional combine and was invited to national combine.

Ryan Spadola, WR, Lehigh: From Howell, N.J. A nice-sized receiver (6-foot-1) with surprising agility. Caught 57 passes for 851 yards and four touchdowns last season. Highest-graded offensive player among the Jets' UDFAs, according to Pro Football Weekly.

Antavious Wilson, WR, Marshall: More productive than teammate Aaron Dobson, a second-round pick of the Patriots. Finished with 69 receptions, 741 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
