NFL: Scrimmage-New York Jets at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

On Monday Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor revealed that he has been slowed in training camp by recovery from a broken ankle in May that required surgery.

Todd Bowles addressed the injury on Tuesday, and he had some relatively harsh words for Pryor.

Maybe it’s just me, but it seems kind of odd for Bowles to get too upset over a player discussing his own injury. Even if it was an issue, it feels strange for the coach to go public with his displeasure. All it really does is extend the life of a story that isn’t all that important. It certainly could have been addressed quietly if it needed to be addressed.

With all that said, this won’t make a big difference in the long run for the 2018 Jets. Everybody will forget about this soon enough, and we can refocus on the important things as we approach the season.
