Despite earlier announcing his intentions to participate in the New York Jets offseason activities as often as possible, LaRon Landry was absent from the start of organized team activities (OTAs) on Monday, according to a Newark Star-Ledger report.
The OTAs are not mandatory, but Landry said he would participate in as many as he could when he signed with the Jets in March. It's unclear why the safety missed Monday's workouts or whether he plans to participate in later sessions, but he normally worked out by himself during his five seasons with the Washington Redskins.
Landry has struggled through two consecutive injury-riddled seasons. He still might not be 100 percent after undergoing offseason rehabilitation to repair an Achilles injury that ended his 2011 season prematurely.
Knowing the health risks that follow Landry, the Jets added Yeremiah Bell this past week to further strengthen their secondary.
