NEW YORK — With all the hype surrounding the NFL draft, it was nice to see Jordan Matthews show up to training camp in a Jets jersey.
Matthews, the No. 2 overall pick by the Jets in the draft, took the field Tuesday at MetLife Stadium, the site of his first NFL workout.
He wore a gray jersey with the words “Jets” on it.
His teammates included offensive tackle Ryan Clady, running back LaMichael James and tight end Michael Crabtree.
Matthews and James were joined by tight end David Njoku and linebacker DeMarcus Ware.
The Jets have already placed running back Bryce Brown on injured reserve and tight ends Antonio Andrews and Robby Anderson were cut Tuesday, meaning they won’t be playing in Thursday’s preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints.
The team announced they had placed two other players on injured-reserve lists.
Matthews played with the team in his first game as a rookie.
Matthews has had a difficult start to training camps.
He has missed 10 games because of injury.
He did not practice Wednesday.
