The Denzel Mims’ injury scare turns out to just be a scare

New York Jets fans can exhale, if only for a short breath.

Reports concerning Denzel Mims‘ departure from the Jets’ joint practice with the Green Bay Packers hint that the sophomore receiver has avoided a major incident.

Mims’ early exit, first reported by Connor Hughes of The Athletic, comes in Green Bay as the Jets partake in join practices with the local Packers before capping their Wisconsin visit off with an exhibition game at Lambeau Field on Saturday late afternoon (4:25 p.m. ET, WLNY/NFL Network).

But according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, Mims was removed for precautionary reasons.

Adam Beasley of Pro Football Network concurred, claiming that a source revealed that Mims “avoided major injury” on a day where the Jets lost touted defensive acquisition Carl Lawson to a leg injury that required him to be carted off the field.

Though he has dealt with a summer of speculation, Mims gained some traction on his offseason with a strong showing against the New York Giants last weekend.

He’ll look to build on a performance that saw him earn 51 yards on three receptions, all of which produced first downs.

Speculation will continue to linger on Lawson, as well as Sheldon Rankins. The former New Orleans Saint likewise departed practice early with an unknown issue, per Hughes, while D.J. Bien-Aime of the New York Daily News said that undrafted rookie cornerback Zane Lewis was also carted off.
