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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. “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.

  4. 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 )

  5. 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..

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

  7. 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.

  9. 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
