What issue? -- After Brian Baldinger's comments on Geno Smith, Rex Ryan told reporters he had no issues with Smith's conditioning. Smith also refuted the story himself today, the first time he talked to the press since Baldinger's comments. Smith passed his physical entering camp, has looked good on the practice field ... this seems like a non-issue.
Even is leavin' -- Mark Sanchez had a bumpy day and he did it with the first unit. For Mark Sanchez to keep the starting job, it is likely that he's going to have to pull away from his competition and if he can't do that, then there's going to be less of a compelling reason to let him play over Smith. If Sanchez wants to win the starting job, he's going to have to pick it up soon and then cement his case once preseason games start.Running backwards? -- Chris Ivory is coming back slower than expected and that's worth noting. Apparently his hamstring issue is still bothering him, which is problematic. The biggest thing is getting him ready for the season, but the longer this lingers the more concerning it is going to become.
Open wide -- Looks like Jets DL Sheldon Richardson needs some dental work and for that reason the team held him out of practice.
Cracking the first team -- Brian Winters saw time with the ones today because Stephen Peterman had something going on with his shoulder. Peterman has looked good so far with the ones, but any opening is worth noting during training camp, especially with a roster full of offensive players fighting over the last 3-4 spots.
