Jets offensive line still missing pieces from practice

There’s a certain optimism about the direction of the Jets’ offense, but there are still plenty of question marks based on the uncertainty about their offensive line.

That line is still missing some key parts, while others are just arriving.

Via Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, both left guard Kelechi Osemele (pec) and right guard Brian Winters (shoulder) will sit out of practice this week with injuries.

The good news is right tackle Brandon Shell‘s knee injury doesn’t appear to be serious, and he’s expected to return soon. He was a late scratch and didn’t play in last Thursday’s preseason game.

Also, center Ryan Kalil practiced for the first time with the Jets Sunday night, and while admitting he’s still working his way into football shape, having him out there represents a significant upgrade for them in the middle.

Considering running back Le'Veon Bell isn’t going to play in the preseason at all, the Jets have a lot of balls in the air at the moment, making it harder to gauge how far along quarterback Sam Darnold is.

  1. Jets fans should make sure they attend the final preseason game, as Joe Douglas is very familiar with the Eagles roster and they have a lot of depth with their offensive line. So much that the Eagles final cuts will be better than current o-linemen penciled in for the Jets’ 53 man roster. I think Douglas is just waiting for the Eagles cuts to round out his take on the Jets final roster.

  2. Final cuts will be better than the jets starting o line? What are you smoking. He will def be active but let’s not get crazy here. The jets have a decent starting 5 and some good backups. The problem is 4 out of the 5 lineman are hurt and working their way back

  3. lol!

    This team is going to get tuned up in the wake of all of this hype. The Browns and Jets, two horribly run franchises, somehow, magically, are the media darlings even with holes all over their rosters with crappy coaches.

  4. Your act is really getting old. I just hope you don’t run and hide from your comments when they are proven wrong. Stupidity and arrogance are a deadly combination. It’s not looking good for you!
