Willie Colon needs a scope of his knee, Rex Ryan said on May 28.
“That’s just something that came up,” Ryan said. Colon will be out “a while,” Ryan told reporters.
Barnes, who missed the last 11 games of 2013 due to a knee injury, hopes to be healthy in time for training camp (Dyer, July 9). Barnes, 29, has been working his way back since suffering the injury during week five of last season, and is making significant progress.
While both Barnes and Colon were hopeful that they would be ready for the start of camp -- and they might be very close -- but just lack the conditioning right now to pass their tests.
At this point, it might be hard to know exactly when they will be ready to resume normal practicing. In the meantime, it would seem that the Jets are considering their options at the situational pass rusher position with the Jason Babbin signing, and they feel pretty confident in their number of young offense of lineman in the last two drafts.
