Jets Practice Recap - 8/5/21

The Jets were on the field for another training camp practice on Thursday with media on hand.

Here's what else went down during practice, based on media reports and tweets from those in attendance:

  • Alijah Vera-Tucker, who is day to day with a pec injury, spent practice in the rehab area. George Fant, who is yet to be activated from Covid reserve, was there also;
  • Bryce Hall did a good job on Corey Davis on a couple of one-on-ones;
  • In linemen drills, Greg Van Roten seemed to struggle while Mekhi Becton did well;
  • Hall was working with the starters again after Brandin Echols got his shot yesterday. Today, Blessuan Austin moved down into the second unit and Isaiah Dunn worked with the starters;
  • Carl Lawson had a run stuff early on in the team session but Tevin Coleman, La'Mical Perine and Ace Carter had first down runs;
  • Zach Wilson found Elijah Moore on his first pass of the day, as Moore made a diving catch against Dunn on the outside;
  • Austin Walter broke away for a 70-yard touchdown run, eluding a few tacklers in the open field;
  • Noah Dawkins broke up a Mike White pass;
  • Alex Lewis - who had been filling in for Vera-Tucker - left the field and walked inside with a trainer;
  • Wilson's next series saw him hit Corey Davis a couple of times but he also threw a bad pick to Jarrad Davis;
  • Lawson beat Becton around the edge for another sack;
  • Josh Adams dropped a short Wilson pass;
  • Bryce Huff racked up three sacks on the day;
  • John Franklin-Myers was shaken up and headed inside with a trainer and then Daniel Brown got hurt shortly afterwards and later headed to the locker room as well;
  • Ty Johnson broke about a 20-yard run;
  • Mike White hit Keelan Cole and James Morgan hit Chris Herndon for good gains;
  • Denzel Mims got called for a push-off to negate a long completion from Morgan;
  • Wilson escaped the pocket to find Herndon for a nice gain and hit Davis a few more times for first downs;
  • Moore caught a long pass from Wilson down the field but it was possibly supposed to be a crosser to Tyler Kroft that Wilson overthrew;
  • CJ Mosley broke up a pass intended for Carter, who also had two drops;
  • Carter then bounced back with a 60-yard catch and run on a Mike White pass;
  • James Morgan hit Josh Malone for a touchdown on his next series but also threw interceptions to Zane Lewis and Blake Cashman. The Cashman pass was deflected off Walter's hands and returned for a touchdown;
  • Echols went down late in practice and needed attention from a trainer. They worked on his calf and then he returned to action;
  • To wrap up, each quarterback led a run-heavy drive that ended up short of the end zone. Wilson's only pass on his drive was broken up by Marcus Maye but Johnson and Perine each had a good run;
  • White's drive didn't really go anywhere as Justin Hardee had a good pass break-up; and
  • Morgan got his turn last as Adams and Carter each had a good run.

Tomorrow is a day off and then the annual Green/White scrimmage takes place on Saturday evening. Check back here then for more coverage.
