New York Jets’ Calvin Pryor and Jace Amaro Need to Stay Healthy
Sunday July 27, 2014 was not a great day if you are a fan of the New York Jets. The Jets’ first- and second-round picks Calvin Pryor and Jace Amaro found themselves on the sidelines during training camp. Pryor was diagnosed with a concussion and has no timetable for his return. Amaro is dealing with a right knee injury, but he downplayed the severity of it. This is the last piece of news you want to hear for any team, but especially the Jets. The team is built around a young nucleolus of players and they need all of them on the field so they could learn the new system and catch up to the speed of an NFL game.
I know these injuries don’t seem like a big deal with the NFL season more than a month away, but any time off the field is time wasted. This season is a big one for Rex Ryan and the Jets because now that the team has new weapons, there is no more room for excuses. I wouldn’t hit the panic button just yet, but the Jets need to monitor its rookies and make sure they are healthy before moving forward. Pryor is known for his big hits in the secondary, so a head injury to a big-hitter is not a great formula. Then again, Pryor does play with a high-motor, so I’m sure this injury is nothing too severe for him. Amaro struggled with his route running during early practices for the Jets, so he needs to be on the field to work through his troubles.
No need to fear yet if you are the New York Jets, but let’s be very, very careful with the two prized rookies.
