The hype train is full steam ahead for the new-look New York Jets, with the arrival of superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers being all anyone can talk about in the NFL as training camps get underway and HBO’s “Hard Knocks” looks to put a spotlight on the franchise.
Although the Jets look like one of the best all-around teams on paper, with the start of the 2023 NFL season right around the corner, New York has a few issues that could become problems in the coming weeks.
Along with some question marks on the offensive line being good enough to keep this high-powered offense running on all cylinders, the health of running back Breece Hall has become a concern.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Hall will start Jets training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Hall played in seven games and started in two of those games for the Jets during his rookie season last year before going down with a torn ACL, which ended his NFL debut sooner than expected.
Despite such a small sample size, Hall proved to be a valuable weapon for the Jets coming out of the backfield while also being a receiving threat.
During the seven games played for New York, Hall racked up 463 yards and four touchdowns on 80 carries while also catching 19 passes for 218 yards and a receiving touchdown.
These are solid numbers for a player playing with a shaky quarterback situation and a questionable offensive line in his first season in the NFL.NEXT: Jets Insider Reveals Promising Mekhi Becton Update
