There have been plenty of injuries for the Jets in training camp. Wide receiver has been hit particularly hard.
That trend continued on Tuesday as the Jets suffered multiple injuries at the position. Additionally, while technically not a receiver, Sam Darnold’s top target at tight end also left practice early.

Adam Gase also said that WR Braxton Berrios, WR Jamison Crowder and WR Chris Hogan all left practice early with some sort of muscle tightness.
Jamison Crowder said he had some lower-leg tightness and left practice as a precaution. But he expects to be OK. #Jets— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) September 1, 2020
Meanwhile, Breshad Perriman, who the Jets originally expected to be back at practice over the weekend, remains out.
WR Breshad Perriman (knee) still not practicing. It’s been over a week for “swelling.” Time to get concerned? #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 1, 2020
Meanwhile there might be some positive news about Denzel Mims.

Between that and Crowder’s injury not sounding serious, there was at least some good news for the Jets at wide receiver. There is still over a week and a half until the regular season opener against the Buffalo Bills so there still is time for injured players to get healthy.
Finally, there was also positive news on rookie running back La’Mical Perine who left a practice over the weekend with an ankle injury.
