Tarell Basham and Lawrence Cager join the list of Jets injuries

The theme of training camp in 2020 for the Jets has been injuries.

The team has been particularly hard hit at the wide receiver position. Undrafted rookie Lawrence Cager added to that, suffering a knee injury in Tuesday’s practice.

Additionally Tarell Basham suffered an ankle injury.

The team does seem optimistic about Breshad Perriman’s return from a minor knee injury if you are searching for some good news.

Even with all of the injuries at receiver, I am uncertain that Cager is set to play much of a role for the Jets this season. Making the team would be a good first step for him.

Basham, however, could receive regular playing time. The Jets just don’t have many proven edge rushers. There has also been some buzz that the team is optimistic about his potential for whatever that is worth.

It obviously will be good for the Jets to get Perriman back so he can continue to work to build chemistry with Sam Darnold.
