Jets Training Camp 2012: Jeremy Kerley To Miss Next Week With Hamstring Injury

New York Jets wide receiver Jeremy Kerley will miss the next week of training camp after injuring his hamstring according to Rich Cimini or

Jets head coach Rex Ryan was not happy about the situation, letting out a rare display of public criticism,

"Jeremy needs to step it up, because, quite honestly, I was a little disappointed in Jeremy in the offseason. He’s got to pick up this system, this new system. He’s got to put the time in it."

The 5-foot-9 Kerley was a solid role player for the Jets last year, playing in 14 games while catching 29 balls for 314 yards and a touchdown. The second-year player out of TCU was expected to be one of the favorites to start in the slot this year for the Jets.
