Of all the so-called “stories” coming out of Jets training camp, the one that really needs to be addressed more is the health of one Chris Ivory.
The running back fully participated for the second straight day after being limited by a hamstring injury all of training camp, and hopes to play Saturday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith has fully participated in practice despite a sore right ankle that shortened his NFL debut at Detroit on Friday night.
Chris Ivory will eventually be the guy for the Jets, but until he’s 100 percent Bilal Powell has a real opportunity to show he never should have been written off in the first place.
Mark Sanchez insists he’s focused only on his own progress, and so far, likes what he’s doing for the New York Jets in training camp.
As far as Sanchez is concerned, there’s no way he won’t be out there under center against Tampa Bay at MetLife Stadium in the season opener.

Ivory, a 6-foot, 225-pound bruiser, ran for 217 yards on 40 carries in 2012, and is averaging 5.1 yards per carry during his first three years in the league, all with New Orleans.
Hakeem Nicks missed practice time, but will start against the Saints.
The Saints’ four-headed rushing attack could cause problems for the Giants on Sunday.
