This is very bad news for a team already missing a cornerback.

We already heard earlier today that Dee Milliner is a no-show at Jets camp, while working out his contract. Now, disastrous news reported on returning veteran Aaron Berry.

Berry, formerly of the Detroit Lions, has torn his ACL on the first day of practice. The news coming out of Cortland is that he will miss the year with the injury, as is common.

As I said, this is terrible news in general, but add to the fact that Milliner is a holdout, and the situation is worse. That leaves us with Cromartie, Kyle Wilson, and young guys like Ellis Lankster, and Isaiah Trufant. Darrin Walls is in the mix as well, look for him to have a chance to make an impact now going forward.

Antonio Cromartie is doing a good job leading this group on the first day, but the cupboard is drying up as far as guys he has to lead. Hopefully, Dee will be signed and in camp soon. He needs all the time he can get.
