Amaro leaves practice with hurt knee

 

The early goings of camp haven’t been kind to Jets rookies.

Second-round pick in tight end Jace Amaro left Sunday’s practice with a right knee injury and was diagnosed with tendinitis (ESPN, July 27th).  He is going to be out until Tuesday, further setting the Jets back.

The Jets are without first-round pick Calvin Pryor, who is being treated after a head injury suffered in practice on Saturday.

I was watching Amaro on the play in which he was injured.  It was a high pass that was put a little too high by Geno Smith and Amaro dove for the ball out of bounds with Calvin Pace step for step in coverage.  Either the collision with the turf or some incidental contact with Pace might have caused the injury.  Amaro was hobbled walking back to the huddle.  To his credit, Amaro tried to stay in on his next play until he broke the huddle and pulled himself from the field and was attended by trainers.

Amaro spent the remainder of practice with a bandage and compress on his knee area.

Rex clarified the matter during his press conference referring to the injury as “tendinitis.”  Both Rex and Amaro seemed hopeful of a quick recovery and return to the field when the players resume practicing on Tuesday.

Amaro (knee) said he will be back at practice Tuesday. Amaro still did his post practice ritual today catching 150 balls on the JUGS Machine

Why is Rex using his 1st round pick Pryor as a punt protector? Don't get it...

Amaro looks like Herman Munster and is apparently just as flexible....The Munsters (google it).....sarcasm

Hope they are both okay and contribute this year

Nice to see big Willie Colon healthy

Rex confirms Pryor has a concussion and will go through league protocol on head injuries. #Jets

Rex on hit Pryor took that caused concussion: "It never looked like that big a deal, but it certainly is now" #Jets

Rex says Pryor has no history of concussions. Re: in college, etc. #Jets 


Rex clarifies that Pryor was injured on a kick return (not on a punt) and the returner was knocked into him. #Jets

when u see guys getting season ending injuries around the league Before getting a pre season game under their belts (knock on wood) things like this don't really bother you as much imo.

@bradysucks He didn't get hurt as the punt protector he got hurt on kickoff return.

@bradysucks Why shouldn't he use him as a punt protector. 


And, lets remember, Pryor got hurt on a kickoff return -- not punt return.

Gotta agree. Why is Pryor punt protecting? He's not known for speed passing or running. I don't get it at all
