LaRon Landry misses practice for Jets

The Jets got one member of their secondary back at practice on Thursday when Darrelle Revis was cleared to practice fully for the first time since suffering a concussion.

Revis returned just in time to watch another defensive back miss practice because of a heel injury. Safety LaRon Landry didn’t practice for the Jets, a new injury because Landry was a full participant on Wednesday.

Landry has a history of Achilles issues, something that troubled the Jets enough to write protections into his contract in the event of a prolonged absence for the safety. That could mean that today’s absence was precautionary as much as it was due to an injury that will threaten his availability come Sunday since it is the third Thursday in a row that Landry has sat out. Landry had a strong opener against Buffalo, but committed two personal fouls in the loss to the Steelers that helped set up Pittsburgh scores.

There was better news elsewhere for the Jets. Tight end Dustin Keller, who missed the Pittsburgh game along with Revis, was a limited participant in practice after missing it entirely on Wednesday and Eric Smith, who would likely be the starter if Landry can’t go, was also able to get back on the field. Cornerback Ellis Lankster didn’t practice, which could complicate matters for the Jets if Revis turns out to be unable to play against the Dolphins.

    maybe this is why Belichick didn’t meet with you during your visit to New England, you ‘roid rage stiff.

    Looks like Tarzan. Plays like Jane.

    Dude has more career DNP’s than tackles

    LaRon is held out from a practice every week in order to keep him healthy. Not sayin’ that’s what this is, but just putting it out there.

    No, he’s fine. He gets days off to rest his Achilles every week. I’m pretty sure he missed the first two Thursday practices also.

    The Jets haters scope and find a Jets blog like a dog following a porkchop.
    But quicker.

    Psssst. 94% of you will be watching other teams in the Super Bowl.

    He has it written in his contract that he sits out one practice during the week for “planned rest”. This is neither news or noteworthy. It’s the way it has been, is now, and will be all year, and we’ve known about this since he signed with the Jets.

    Please avoid the sensation of surpirse next week when Landry sits out practice on Thursday.

    “Psssst. 94% of you will be watching other teams in the Super Bowl”.
    ================================
    Not sure what teams will be in the SB…but pretty sure you will be in the 100% not watching the Jets.

    @lrjets. And that has what to do with landry?

    I guess those Redskins trainers knew what they were talking about……screw you buddy! keep working out those biceps

  11. buffalose says: Sep 20, 2012 6:26 PM

    Aw I was hoping someone hit him in the knees As he was falling to the ground already being tackled just so someone thinks they’re a tough guy. ( week 1? Not whining just poking fun )

    Fragile ol’ LaRon…

    Keep pumpin’ those Bi’s and Tri’s and don’t worry about your paper thin Achilles.

    I hope NYJ did not sign you with any guaranteed money.

    Ooooohhh Poetic Justice! And all this after he had just blasted the Redskins and their medical staff saying they had misdiagnosed him and he’s healthy blah blah blah… He didn’t want to rehab correctly when he was with the skins, he put the blame on them, and now look… A “HEEL INJURY” Good thing he worked on his abs chest and biceps so hard this off season, he’ll looks super strong in a pair of Jets sweats standing on the sidelines…
    Now if Cortland Finnegan could just get soo hard he craps himself live on field I’d be a happy camper this week..

    Hurt? Landry? No, I don’t believe it

  15. mikealstott says: Sep 20, 2012 7:32 PM

    I thought 25″ arms would shield your entire body…

    How’s that “Natural Healing” working for you? When he was with the Redskins he refused achillies surgery instead going with natural healing.

    This just in, Landry was flagged for a 15 yard personal foul while watching practice.

    i’m surprised you guys are posting this considering you are all over EVERYTHING that happens in jets land. rex has said literally every week since training camp that landry is on a “pitch count” and will sit out practice once a week.

    Don’t let facts ever stop a good Landry bashing. Your such a buzz kill.

    The Jets have had him on a workout/practice schedule all season so this isnt real news.

  21. fukerton says: Sep 21, 2012 5:42 PM

    The problem with his heel is that it isn’t properly attached to the rest of his leg via his achilles tendon. LLs achilles is shot and I’m a bit surprised he lasted until week 3
