Jace Amaro joins Calvin Pryor on Jets sideline

AP

It has not been a banner weekend for the Jets’ 2014 draft class.

The Jets saw their first-round pick leave Saturday’s practice with a head injury after safety Calvin Pryor was involved in a collision during special teams drills and their second-round pick joined Pryor on the sideline during Sunday’s session.

Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Amaro hurt his right knee during 7-on-7 drills and received attention from the team’s trainers. He had the knee wrapped with ice and, per Cimini, “struggled to put weight” on the knee when trying to jog and attempt a few cuts after leaving practice.

The team hopes Amaro can add a reliable target in the passing game, but Amaro has a lot of work to do after playing almost entirely as a receiver in Texas Tech’s offense. Any absence during camp would make that transition more difficult, even if the team could use every boost in can get in the passing game.

  1. Not an auspicious sign if Amaro can’t put weight on the leg. Could be a season-ender already.

  2. This is actually welcome news to Jets fans

    Typically bombastically confident of winning the Super Bowl as of July for the past 40 plus years, by September they are collecting excuses why they have once again failed to break their ongoing tie with the Houston Oilers for Eastern Division titles.

    This year they can breath a sigh of relief, having their excuses set before August.

  3. I thought they were winning the Super Bowl? Maybe Rex needs to re think what he says. Practice hadn’t even started and he was waffling about how good they were. Injuries can make a mess of those comments Rex.

  4. Rex and no JET actually said we were winning the Super Bowl, so back off and lighten up. The kid will be back on Tuesday.

    May your favorite teams all suffer catastrophic injuries.
