The NY Jets officially completed their first week of training camp on Thursday. The team will have a couple of days off before returning to the practice field on Sunday for their final week of practice before next Thursday's Hall of Fame Game.
Today's practice was headlined by an injury scare regarding star wide receiver Garrett Wilson. Wilson left early after limping off with an ankle injury. Jets head coach Robert Saleh indicated after practice that Wilson should be fine, but he will likely miss at least a couple of days of training camp.
Elsewhere, the Jets were shorthanded at receiver, with Allen Lazard (leg) and Corey Davis (illness) both missing practice. Mekhi Becton returned but didn't participate in team drills.
Let's take a look at some of the most notable standouts (and one dud) from Thursday's practice.
Standout: Jason Brownlee, WR, NY Jets
Jason Brownlee was the star of Thursday's practice — an increasingly common trend in recent days. The undrafted rookie receiver hauled in a pair of touchdowns, one each from Aaron Rodgers and Chris Streveler.
Brownlee saw extended action with the first-team offense as a result of injuries, and he made the most of his playing time. His first touchdown came after he burnt past Sauce Gardner (yes, the Sauce Gardner) for a 25-yard touchdown from Rodgers. He may have grabbed Gardner's facemask on the play, but no flag was thrown.
His second touchdown came in a diving effort in the back of the end zone, hauling in a tight-window Streveler pass. Brownlee has made a number of impressive catches this summer and has been more active than any wide receiver not named Garrett Wilson.
Robert Saleh told reporters after practice that the Jets hoped to draft Brownlee back in April but that it didn't work out. It's looking more and more likely that the former Southern Miss star makes the 53-man roster.
