Camp Recap: Day three - 7/29/18

The Jets were on the field today for their third practice. Here were some of the things that happened based on reports from those on site:

  • Quarterback Sam Darnold was still absent, as he still hasn't finalized his rookie contract;
  • Most of the Jets, including wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, were in full pads, although Quincy Enunwa was back in a red no-contact jersey as a precaution and Pryor skipped the team session;
  • Jamal Adams had an active day, making several plays and firing up the crowd;
  • Parry Nickerson was a standout during man coverage drills;
  • Both quarterbacks were inconsistent, especially Teddy Bridgewater, leading to restlessness from the crowd;
  • Linebacker Neville Hewitt apparently had a good day;
  • JJ Wilcox scored on a Thomas Rawls fumble but Rawls and Trenton Cannon otherwise looked good;
  • Robby Anderson had a turn at fielding punts today. They had Isaiah Crowell back there yesterday - probably trying to identify a starter who can do the job if the return man gets injured;
  • Derrick Jones intercepted a pass for the second day in a row, this time from Bridgewater;
  • Bridgewater bounced back to throw touchdowns to Anderson and Tre McBride in red zone work;
  • Lorenzo Mauldin had a sack and a run stuff in team and impressed in one-on-one drills;
  • Leonard Williams was impressive in both team and drill sessions;
  • Tight ends Jordan Leggett and Chris Herndon each made a few plays including a touchdown each from Josh McCown in 7-on-7 drills. Eric Tomlinson and Neal Sterling also each had a red zone score; and
  • After practice, Bowles confirmed that Xavier Cooper, Brandon Bryant and Kacy Rodgers, who missed some time, are not injured, attributing this to "camp soreness" in each case.
