AFC Notes: Browns, Jets, Texans

“Ward being out there is because he’s earning it,” Jackson said, via Mary Kay Cabot of “He’s working at it. He plays a position that we’ve been needing a guy to step up. We see him improving each and every day and doing the things that we’re asking. He needs to continue to do that to continue to be out there but we know he’s very talented. That’s why we drafted him. He’s displayed that since he’s been here.”


  • Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Jets OLB Jordan Jenkins is dealing with a shoulder injury that has kept him out of OTAs.
  • According to Mehta, Jenkins did some “light work” during Tuesday’s practice but did not participate in any team drills.

  • Bowles added that he does not think his shoulder injury is considered long term.

“He feels really good,” Weaver said, via “In talking to him this morning, he feels great. He’s building his strength back. His plan is obviously [to] be out there at training camp at full strength.

“He’s recently — and I’m talking about the past few weeks — it’s the best he’s felt. He’s very confident.
