The Jets seem to be a refocused team so far in 2012. The team is working hard to get past the failures of 2011. There is one problem.
Injuries. Soft tissue injuries, to be exact.
There were problems during minicamp, and coach Ryan challenged the team to be in top shape coming into training camp. Well, it doesn’t seem like the team has heeded that request. Especially not the wide receivers.
The Jets have 12 receivers on the roster, but by the end of Tuesday’s practice, only 4 were left to participate in 2 minute drills. Stephen Hill, Patrick Turner, Dexter Jackson, and Raymond Webber were the only weapons available on the outside to Mark Sanchez as they practiced last minute drives.
Rex clearly knows this is a problem, as earlier this week, he decided to extend stretching by 10 minutes. That hasn’t helped, at least not yet.
Obviously, this is a problem. Hopefully the Jets figure out how to solve it soon.
