Jace Amaro joins Calvin Pryor on Jets sideline
It has not been a banner weekend for the Jets’ 2014 draft class.
The Jets saw their first-round pick leave Saturday’s practice with a head injury after safety Calvin Pryor was involved in a collision during special teams drills and their second-round pick joined Pryor on the sideline during Sunday’s session.
Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Amaro hurt his right knee during 7-on-7 drills and received attention from the team’s trainers. He had the knee wrapped with ice and, per Cimini, “struggled to put weight” on the knee when trying to jog and attempt a few cuts after leaving practice.
The team hopes Amaro can add a reliable target in the passing game, but Amaro has a lot of work to do after playing almost entirely as a receiver in Texas Tech’s offense. Any absence during camp would make that transition more difficult, even if the team could use every boost in can get in the passing game.
