Practice Recap - 6/1/22

The Jets are in their second week of OTA and the media were on hand again today, so here's what went down based on reports from those in attendance:

  • Lamarcus Joyner, who wasn't here last week, made his return and got first team reps at safety. Jason Pinnock also got first team work;
  • CJ Uzomah was one of the players in the rehab area;
  • The Jets played an 11-on-11 session this time, with the defense dominating the first session. Zach Wilson completed just one of five passes, a short one to Elijah Moore;
  • Wilson was 2-for-3 on his second series with first down completions to Moore and Braxton Berrios. Berrios beat Elijah Riley;
  • Joe Flacco had some good moments with the second team, hitting Kenny Yeboah for a long gain in 11-on-11 and Berrios for a long touchdown in 7-on-7;
  • In 7-on-7, Wilson completed five of six, including one to Garrett Wilson, who beat Bryce Hall;
  • On defense, Jovante Moffatt intercepted Mike White and Rachad Wildgoose and Sauce Gardner each broke up a Wilson pass; and
  • Wilson hit a nice gain to Tyler Conklin on his final series.

Both before and after the practice, Jets coaches and some players were made available to the media. Here were some of the more interesting comments:

  • Mekhi Becton isn't expected back at practice until the mandatory minicamp in a few weeks, but Robert Saleh said that's no big deal and they'll decide who goes on which side when he arrives;
  • Sauce Gardner hasn't been named as a starter yet because he needs to earn it. Until then, Hall will work with the first unit; and
  • Denzel Mims is apparently in fantastic shape. Saleh said his main issue last year was that his lower body strength never recovered following his illness.

The Jets are scheduled to have a day off tomorrow before resuming practice on Friday and then will practice four times next week.
