Despite being cleared for contact, Rex Ryan doesn’t expect Calvin Pryor to play in the Jets first preseason game.
Pryor has been working back from a concussion he suffered two weeks ago.
Pryor was cleared for contact and participated in practice on Monday. He was previously only allowed to work in non-contact drills.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comThis isn’t anything we expected either.
Putting Pryor back in to live action for little to no gain right now has no upside. Pryor has already missed significant time on the field and putting him up against players trying to make the Colts final roster is dangerous. Holding Pyror back – at least another game – is the only move that makes any sense and we’re glad the Jets see it the same way.
