The second day of mandatory minicamp for 24 teams included one holdout ending, one major player getting released and plenty of wide receiver scuttlebutt. Here's what we learned:
- One day after praising Geno Smith, Jets coach Todd Bowles put even more public pressure on missing in action starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. Bowles said the team has talked about adding another veteran quarterback if Fitzpatrick doesn't return. That's an indictment of the progress of youngsters Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, who might not be ready to assume a backup role behind Geno Smith. (And if you want to make a Jets fan sick, read the above sentence to him.)
- Bears coach John Fox announced Wednesday that receiver Marquess Wilson broke his left foot again and could miss the start of the regular season. Chicago has enviable depth to survive it with Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White and Eddie Royal atop the depth chart. NFL Media's Stacey Dales noted how fluid and physical White has looked at practice this offseason.
- Redskins first-round pick Josh Doctson missed all of minicamp with a nagging Achilles injury. It's not believed to be overly serious. Then again, that's what we heard while Kevin White missed practices all last offseason. While Doctson was on the sidelines, second-year slot man Jamison Crowder was one of the offseason standouts for the Redskins, according to ESPN.
"He's right there right now, he could be our starter, he could be the starting X," receiver coach Bob Bratkowski said via ESPN.
"If you had seen him last Thursday do the conditioning part of the program in the offseason, you would have never known he was injured last year," coach Mike McCoy said.
