The New York Jets picked a wide receiver in the first round of the NFL draft for the first time in 21 years.

Fans have been hyped for weeks about what Garrett Wilson can do on this offense, but everything ground to a halt after a scary tweet on Wednesday, June 8th.

The Athletic’s Connor Hughes detailed a beautiful touchdown connection between Zach Wilson and his new toy, however he said former Ohio State product “hobbled away” after the piece.

Hughes posted a follow up to his original tweet at 7:12 p.m. ET Wednesday night, saying, “Wilson, who hobbled off the field after catching a touchdown in practice Wednesday, is fine. There is nothing to fear there.”

The injury doesn’t appear to be serious and Hughes appears to be the only member of the beat to report it on social media.

All of these workouts are optional outside of next week’s mandatory mini-camp, which takes place June 14-16.

The number one thing you want to see at this stage of the offseason is no injuries as everything else is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

Luckily, the Jets have incredible depth at wide receiver, as they currently have four deeps in Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, Braxton Berrios and the aforementioned Wilson.

So if this positional group should be seriously injured, they are positioned to survive.

The Jets didn’t draft Wilson because of his looks, however, but chose him because they expect the No. 10 overall pick to be an integral part of their 2022 offense.

We’ll keep you updated on any new information that becomes available throughout the week.

Speaking of wide receivers, Moore got discovered watched the training on Wednesday and didn’t take part.

Brian Costello of the New York Post said “not sure what’s up there” regarding this situation.

Last year, the former Ole Miss stud played all over the field before being disabled by a lower body injury that took him out of the entire preseason.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh spoke glowingly of Moore on Wednesday, however he spoke to the media before the team enters the field.

“He is by far one of our hardest workers. Moore is so in tune with his body and the scheme and is trying to get better. There were some great fights between him and DJ Reed, Bryce Hall and all the other DBs (defensive backs).”

However, Wednesday saw none of those big fights as two players were particularly absent from training. Reed and wide receiver Denzel Mims were not spotted at practice.

It’s important to reiterate that these practices are voluntary, so unless new information suggests otherwise, these absences should be taken with a grain of salt.

Both Mims and Reed have been spotted doing all other volunteer workouts so far this offseason.
