Second-round WR Devin Smith suffered broken ribs in the first practice of Jets camp and may miss all of the preseason.

Smith has been hospitalized with the painful injury. It should be emphasized that Smith broke multiple ribs, not just one. The injury occurred while Smith was "making a leaping catch" in Friday's practice. The 37th pick in this year's draft, Smith was going to compete for third receiver duties with Jeremy Kerley behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. While we didn't have high hopes for Smith's re-draft league prospects, so much lost practice time in OC Chan Gailey's system may prevent Smith from making any meaningful early-season impact.

Newsday reports the Jets "had no knowledge" of Sheldon Richardson's July 14 on resisting arrest and traffic charges before Thursday.

Already suspended for the season's first four games, it was an almost inconceivably-poor decision on Richardson's behalf not to inform the Jets of his arrest. Gang Green's backing of its player could be tepid, to put it mildly, for the foreseeable future. Richardson was "only" charged with resisting arrest and traffic violations, but his car also had a "very strong odor of marijuana" at the time of his arrest. He had a (legal) loaded gun. Richardson's current four-game ban is for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. It's safe to say he's going to miss more than four games this season.

The St Louis Post-Dispatch reports Jets DL Sheldon Richardson was arrested in Missouri earlier this month for resisting arrest and "various traffic violations."

Richardson was arrested on July 14 for his role in an "apparent high-speed road race." Driving as fast as 143 miles per hour, Richardson is accused of trying to elude an officer attempting to pull him over. All the while, he had two other men and a "12-year-old child" in the car. It's a concerning, embarrassing incident for a player who earned a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy just 12 days before his arrest. It's unclear if Richardson's latest issue will lead to further league discipline. Richardson is a budding star on the field, but has always been a bit of a knucklehead off of it.

Suspended Jets DL Sheldon Richardson will run with the second team in training camp.

The Jets want to get first-rounder Leonard Williams first-team reps as he prepares to fill in during Richardson's ban. Although the Jets are deeply disappointed in Richardson and Williams offers a readymade fill-in, Richardson will immediately resume near every-down duties upon his return. Richardson flashed All-Pro upside in 2014.

Jets CB Dee Milliner (Achilles') has been cleared for training camp.

Milliner tore his Achilles' last October. A forgotten man after the additions of Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, Milliner faces an uphill climb to earn playing time in Todd Bowles' back end. Milliner was the ninth overall pick in the 2013 draft. He's missed 16 games through two years.

Jets placed RB Stevan Ridley on the active/PUP list.

This was expected after Ridley got in limited work at OTAs. Ridley remains a candidate for reserve/PUP, which would cost him the first six games. Ridley will be 10 months removed from ACL surgery for Week 1.

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson intends to play out the final year of his deal if a long-term contract isn't reached by Week 1.

As is the case with many players, Wilkerson doesn't want his contract hanging over his head during the season. Per Jets reporter Rich Cimini, "talks have picked up" between Wilkerson and the team, but a deal doesn't appear imminent. Wilkerson is expected to command at least $12 million annually in new money.

The Jets will use second-year TE Jace Amaro as an H-back.

Jeff Cumberland projects to fill in as the traditional inline tight end. Amaro has the athleticism to move around the formation and make plays with the ball in his hands. But he'll need to show in camp that he's corrected his drops issue that plagued him as a rookie. If so, Amaro has a chance to catch 50-60 passes in OC Chan Gailey's spread. Amaro hurt his back at OTAs and missed minicamp.

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson will not hold out of training camp.

The Jets and Wilkerson remain far apart on a new contract, but he's not going to make a stink. He'll play out the final year of his rookie deal at $6.96 million and then seek a mammoth deal in free agency. Assuming he continues to play at an elite level, Wilkerson will command at least the five-year, $60 million deal Cam Jordan got from the Saints two months ago.

Jets signed WR Austin Hill.

Hill was thought to be a priority UDFA following May's draft, getting scooped by the Seahawks. But he failed his physical, a bad sign for a player who missed his entire junior year at Arizona with a severe knee injury. Hill subsequently got picked up and dropped by the Raiders. He'll be a poor bet to stick on the Jets.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora expects Geno Smith to get a "solid half season" to show he can maintain the Jets' quarterback job.

It's been widely speculated Smith might enter the season on a short leash after the Jets traded for Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason. Beat writers in New York have suggested Geno's rope might only last four games, before the Jets' Week 5 bye. Still, most indications continue to point to the Jets having some level of commitment to Geno, who is a sleeper in two-QB leagues after the acquisitions of Brandon Marshall and rookie deep threat Devin Smith.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini believes it's a "make-or-break year" for OG Brian Winters.

The 72nd overall pick in the 2013 draft, Winters has made 18 career starts but is coming off a torn ACL and is no longer on "scholarship" with a new coaching staff in New York. After the Jets signed LG James Carpenter, Winters will be competing with several others at right guard and may dabble at center.

Darrelle Revis said he contemplated retirement after tearing his ACL and requiring microfracture surgery in 2012.

This is the first we've heard of Revis requiring microfracture surgery, a known career-threatening operation, after tearing his ACL in Week 3 of 2012. It's pretty amazing he recovered in time for Week 1 the following season, when he was dealt to the Bucs. It's simply an interesting nugget for a slow news day.

Brandon Marshall said the Jets will be his last team.

Marshall hosted an impromptu Twitter Q&A late Thursday, answering a wide range of questions. This one caught our eye. "After Jets, I'm done," Marshall tweeted. "If I'm cut tomorrow, I'll retire. This will be my last team." Marshall just turned 31 in March and signed a new three-year, $26 million contract when he was dealt to the Jets. He also happened to say Kyle Orton is the best quarterback he's ever played with, which could be taken as a jab at Jay Cutler.
Jul 17 - 8:38 AM

Jeremy Kerley is expected to catch even fewer passes than he did last season.

Kerley turned 75 targets into a paltry 38-409-1 line last year. Mercifully, the Jets have given Geno Smith some more weapons in the form of Brandon Marshall and Devin Smith to go with Eric Decker and Jace Amaro. Kerley's biggest impact will come on special teams.
