The Jets linebacker Jermaine Cunningham who they signed this past off-season has torn his Achilles and has been placed on the Injured Reserve.
Jets rookie WR Shaq Evans, whom they drafted out of UCLA in the 4th round, has a "serious shoulder injury" that will most likely put him on the Injured Reserve will Cunningham. That leaves the Jets with less WR options for QB Geno Smith.
The Jets signed veteran tackle Bruce Campbell who will add depth to the Jets offensive line, Campbell was signed after Cunningham was put on the Injured Reserve.
Offensive Guard Willie Colon, if healthy, will be in the starting lineup week 1. According to Rex, "If he stays healthy, I have a tough time not seeing him in the starting lineup."
Geno Smith will start in tomorrow's first pre-season game, this is a bit of a big deal even though he was the starting QB last season. Michael Vick will get a lot of action, as will backup QB's Matt Simms and Tajh Boyd.
1st round pick Calvin Pryor will not be playing in the first pre-season game tomorrow vs the Colts due to his inability to show he is 100% healthy after a concussion. In my mind he shouldn't play until the 3rd pre-season game, and he shouldn't play after that until week 1.
Jets play tomorrow August 7th vs the Indianapolis Colts, the first pre-season game for both teams.
