Jordan White, our rookie 7th round pick wide receiver, and the only draft pick thus far unsigned, reportedly has a broken foot. He will likely miss between 6-8 weeks, which would set his return for the middle of July. This is no doubtedly a huge setback for the rookie, who needs all the practice he can get to make the roster. In fact, the Jets have Santonio Holmes, Stephen Hill, Chaz Schilens, Eron Riley, Jeremy Kerley, Jordan White, Patrick Turner, Scotty McKnight, DeMarcus Ganaway, Dexter Jackson, Royce Pollard, etc., competing for very few receiver spots. Honestly, I expect the Jets to put White on the practice squad and go with a corps of Holmes, Hill, Kerley, Schilens, and Turner/Riley. This would give the Jets some good size and a lot of speed. In any case, what do you all think of the developments regarding White and what the receiving corps is starting to shape up as?

Update: I had initially heard from a friend that the break happened last week. It turns out White fractured his fifth metatarsel in his left foot on May 21, and surgery was performed two days later. He will return around the time training camp starts.
