Jets rookie tight end Jace Amaro had to leave practice today with a knee injury he said was not serious.
Jace Amaro looks like he banged up his knee. Talking to trainer.— Seth Walder (@SethWalderNYDN) July 27, 2014
Amaro hobbling comin out of huddle. We'll keep an eye on it.— Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) July 27, 2014
Amaro walking back to sideline, but has right knee wrapped (it appears, in ice). #Jets— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) July 27, 2014
Amaro seems to be walking OK. The fact that he's staying out here is a good sign that it's not too serious. #NYJ— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) July 27, 2014
Amaro now walking from field. No wrap on knee. No limp. #Jets— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) July 27, 2014
Amaro says he just tweaked his knee, doctors said he should be fine by Tuesday #Jets— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) July 27, 2014
Amaro said he's been dealing with a sore tendon in his knee since OTAs. Said it was a product of having few breaks since last summer.— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) July 27, 2014
It was a rough weekend for the Jets with their top two picks getting injured. Hopefully Amaro will be back as quickly as he thinks he will. Camp is relatively important for rookies as they learn the playbook and responsibilities. Every bit of time before Week 1 is valuable.
