News from New York Jets practice Tuesday focused on new quarterback Aaron Rodgers pinching his calf, which he revealed during his media appearance.
But it was also reported that wide receiver Allen Lazard, the former Green Bay Packer who signed with the Jets this offseason before the Rodgers trade, also had a brief departure from practice.
Lazard was leaving with the trainers, but managed to come back and practice for the rest of the day.

The 27-year-old bluntly revealed what happened on Twitter.
«I’m fine y’all,» he wrote, «not sure why they didn’t report that I practiced the rest of the day 100% but I’m fine lol. Got my gonads hit.»

But it’s good news for Jets fans to know that one of their best free agents isn’t seriously injured and is back in practice.
Rodgers did not participate in team drills after the calf injury during «pre-practice conditioning,» he said.
«Take it day by day,» Rodgers said, via SNY.
ESPN’s Rich Cimini added: «I don’t think it’s too serious.»
Tuesday marked the first day of the Jets’ volunteer OTAs. Rodgers was not used to attending events with the Packers in recent years.
Rodgers is apparently trying to establish a relationship with his new teammates, but the injury could change that, at least this week.
