Aaron Rodgers is a full go for the New York Jets OTAs

After weeks of the doldrums, the New York Jets’ voluntary organized team activities are finally here. Robert Saleh indicated that Aaron Rodgers is a full go for the program with no restrictions. He gave several other updates before the Jets took the field.

Here’s our live coverage of the Jets’ second OTA practice, the first one open to the media.

OTA live tweets

It looks like Rodgers is done for the day.

Rodgers should give a tremendous boost to the woeful Jets red zone offense.

Touchdown Garrett!

But Wilson won’t let Sauce own the day, either.

Sauce Gardner isn’t going to let Rodgers beat him without a fight.

One of the more interesting camp battles will be between undrafted free agent edge rushers Braiden McGregor and Eric Watts, both of whom might have a chance to make the roster.

Rodgers finished up a set of drills with one miss, leaving him nearly perfect.

The Jets get their first look at their new left tackle — and it’s a sight to behold.

Rodgers to Xavier Gipson for the touchdown!

Rodgers brings a different experience to drills, especially after watching Jets quarterbacks over the past few seasons.

The defense finally picked up a win against Rodgers.

The Rodgers-to-Garrett Wilson connection will be critical for the Jets this season.

Rodgers is hitting players at the bottom of the Jets’ depth chart.

The Jets are warming up on the field.

Missing players

Quinnen Williams, Breece Hall, and Haason Reddick were not seen at today’s OTA, per ESPN’s Rich Cimini. The practices are voluntary.

Injury updates: Vera-Tucker, Williams not cleared

As OTAs started, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Mike Williams, and Morgan Moses were off on a side field. According to Saleh, none of them have been cleared for full football activities yet. Vera-Tucker tore his Achilles in Week 5 of the 2023 season. Williams tore his ACL in Week 3. Moses had offseason surgery to fix a torn labrum in his shoulder that he played with throughout the 2023 season.

John Simpson is also working on the side, per Brian Costello of The New York Post.

On the plus side, Olu Fashanu and Tyron Smith are practicing.

Open safety competition

Per Saleh, Chuck Clark is a full go for OTAs after tearing his ACL during last offseason’s program. The surprise is a full safety competition: Clark vs. Tony Adams vs. Ashtyn Davis.
