The NY Jets held their final OTA practice of the spring on Friday, but before the team embarked on a six-week break until training camp in the summer, they experienced a bit of an injury scare with tight end C.J. Uzomah.

Uzomah exited Friday's practice early with an apparent leg injury after the veteran tight end appeared to tweak something while running a route. He limped off the field with the help of trainers and did not return for the remainder of practice.

While it's unclear exactly what injury Uzomah suffered, it does appear to be minor. SNY's Connor Hughes reported on Saturday that the Jets have "no worries" about Uzomah's status for the start of training camp.

Uzomah appeared to grab his quad immediately after suffering the injury, but no matter the case, it appears as though the Jets dodged a bullet. Uzomah should be fine for training camp next month.

The NY Jets are pretty much fully healthy entering training camp

The Jets did see a few players leave early during practice this spring with minor injuries, although none are expected to carry over into training camp.

The likes of Tyler Conklin, Micheal Clemons, Zonovan Knight, Randall Cobb, and Mecole Hardman all sat out for the Jets' final OTA practice of the spring on Friday. That said, none of their injuries appear to be significant. The Jets were likely taking every precaution necessary with them.

Meanwhile, players like Mekhi Becton, Duane Brown, and Breece Hall spent the spring rehabbing their own pre-existing injuries. Becton is expected to be full-go for training camp, Brown hopes he will be ready by July, and Hall is still on track to play Week 1.

Of course, who can forget the injury scare with Aaron Rodgers during the Jets' first open-media OTA session? Rodgers still showed up for all 10 of the Jets' OTA practices despite his minor calf injury keeping him sidelined for a bit.

Injuries are a part of football. The Jets will experience their fair share of injuries this season — it's inevitable. It is nice, however, for the team to enter the summer pretty much at full strength.

Uzomah's injury may have garnered some attention on Friday, but all signs point to him being 100 percent by the time training camp kicks off next month.
