The Jets have been dealing with numerous injuries throughout training camp.
Today the offensive line was hit by injury as right guard Greg Van Roten suffered an oblique injury.

Le’Veon Bell was also limited by hamstring tightness according to head coach Adam Gase.
Le’Veon Bell was pulled out because of hamstring tightness, per Gase, who says it was precautionary. He doesn’t seem alarmed. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 26, 2020
Bell, however, did not agree with this diagnosis.

its tough to stay loose when you do a bunch of standing around......& I’m used to GOINGGG— Le'Veon Bell (@LeVeonBell) August 26, 2020
I’m sure the New York media will not blow this out of proportion.
In other news, Tarell Basham will be out for a few weeks with an ankle injury.

Basham actually has a chance to see playing time this year with the lack of depth the Jets have at edge rusher so his status will be worth watching.
Lawrence Cager, who suffered a knee injury earlier in the week, is still waiting to be evaluated.
Lawrence Cager’s knee swelled overnight, now going for an MRI, per Gase. This was the concern with Cager coming out of college (injuries). #Jets— Robby Sabo (@RobbySabo) August 26, 2020
In better news, it seems like Denzel Mims is making progress in his recovery from a hamstring injury.
Apparently Wednesday’s practice was not a good one for the Jets offense. I’ll close with a tweet by Dan Hanzus which summarizes why I don’t have a write up telling everybody to panic.
Nice glimpse into how the tabloid sausage gets made in Florham Park today. Jets' first team plays poorly in scrimmage that's covered like the Super Bowl. All those play-by-play tweets stir up Jets Twitter, which stirs up Lev Bell Twitter, which ... well, you know what comes next.— Dan Hanzus (@DanHanzus) August 26, 2020
