Camp Recap: Day two - 7/28/17

The Jets were on the field today for their second 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;
  • Quincy Enunwa is now no longer wearing a red no-contact jersey. However Terrelle Pryor and Marcus Maye still sat out most of the team activities;
  • The defense was dominant early, as usual. Derrick Jones flashed with a sack and two interceptions, although he was ruled out of bounds on one;
  • Josh McCown was also almost picked by Darron Lee, who dropped a potential pick-six near his own goal line and Parry Nickerson, who jumped a route;
  • Rookie Chris Herndon came down with an impressive one-handed catch for a touchdown;
  • Dylan Donahue had two sacks and Leonard Williams and Nathan Shepherd were reportedly disruptive all day;
  • Thomas Rawls and Spencer Long were standouts on offense;
  • Running back Isaiah Crowell saw some return work on special teams;
  • Doug Middleton continue to see first team reps;
  • The Jets hosted running backs Alfred Morris and Orleans Darkwa on official visits as news broke that Elijah McGuire has suffered a broken foot; and
  • They also worked out defensive tackle Drew Iddings, but presumably that was yesterday before they opted to sign Shaneil Jenkins, who Bowles said they've had some interest in for a while and he's perhaps a better fit for the system than Courtney Upshaw.

Pads go on tomorrow!
