More details have emerged in Chris Herndon's June 2 car crash in New Jersey that resulted in the Jets' rookie tight end being charged with DWI. According to the accident report obtained by ESPN, an eyewitness told NJ State Police that an SUV believed to be driven by Herndon was traveling at least 100 mph on Route 80. The report said Herndon's SUV flipped after colliding with another vehicle, which caught fire. The SUV slid approximately 700 feet after initial contact. Herndon told police the other vehicle was speeding and hit him from behind, causing him to flip. Herndon failed a Breathalyzer test, police said at the time of the arrest.

Gruden blames CBA for Hackenberg's struggles

Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden says it's depressing that teams can't spend more time developing young quarterbacks like Christian Hackenberg.

Coach Todd Bowles confirmed the QB depth chart for the start of training camp. Hardly a surprise here, folks: Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and rookie Sam Darnold, in that order. But it's not etched in stone. Said Bowles: "The competition will heat up when we're in pads and when those things count."

Jets RB coach Stump Mitchell is high on second-year RB Eli McGuire — and that's an understatement. Mitchell: "Wow, Eli looks fantastic. I'll tell you who I see Eli as and he's in the Hall of Fame. Eli can do those type of things. He has the skill set to be LaDainian Tomlinson — if he was given that opportunity. That's not what presents itself to him at this particular point in time. But skill set, he can do it all." Question: If McGuire is that good, why is he behind Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell?

Takeaways on final minicamp practice: This was an abbreviated session, not nearly as competitive as yesterday. QB Josh McCown had a strong day, displaying real good velocity on an intermediate throw to Robby Anderson. QB Teddy Bridgewater seemed a bit off for the second day in a row. Decent day for Sam Darnold. He had an interception (only his second in six open practices), but the ball deflected off the hands of TE Jordan Leggett. WR ArDarius Stewart also had a drop on a well-thrown ball by McCown.

Terrelle Pryor, who had recent arthroscopic surgery in his right ankle, hopes to be ready for the start of training camp. He expects to "hit the field running."

Quarterbacks working on the fundys — Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold. Final day of minicamp.

Non-quarterback takeaways from Day 2 of minicamp: This was the most spirited open practice of the spring. Lots of jawing, offense vs. defense. Todd Bowles said they have several players who are "unanimous (selections) on the all-trash talking team in shorts and T-shirts." ... Defense dominated practice ... INTs by LBs Kevin Pierre-Louis and David Bass and S Doug Middleton ... Lots of penalties on offense ... Good day for TE Jordan Leggett, who scored in a red-zone period ... LB Lorenzo Mauldin flashed against the run ... Did I say lots of penalties?

Todd Bowles usually doesn't get angry, but he was fired up in practice today when DE Leonard Williams inadvertently hit QB Teddy Bridgewater in the arm during a team drill. That's a no-no, and the coach let everybody know it. Asked later if there's a fine line for defenders, Bowles said curtly, "There is no fine line. We don't touch the quarterback in shorts and T-shirts. Ever."

Jets' OC: Darnold 'hasn't flinched,' could start

Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said Wednesday that the Jets have thrown the entire playbook at quarterback Sam Darnold and the rookie "hasn't flinched."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie QB Sam Darnold was outstanding on Day 2 of minicamp — well, until a poor two-minute drill at the end of practice. He appeared rattled in the hurry-up situation, taking two sacks. That's a tough spot for a young QB. Otherwise, Darnold was really sharp, displaying both power and touch on a variety of throws. He was terrific in a red-zone period, making quick and good decisions. Unofficially, he was 15-for-21 with two TD passes. He got only six reps with the first team, compared to 30 for Josh McCown and four for Teddy Bridgewater, who had a bad day with three interceptions.

Jets WR Robby Anderson, who was arrested twice in a nine-month span, doesn't expect a league suspension. Charges were dropped in one case; he still faces a misdemeanor reckless driving charge in the other.

Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said he has thrown the entire playbook at rookie QB Sam Darnold. How's Darnold handling it? "He hasn't flinched," Bates said.

Jets QB Josh McCown, a member of the Players Coalition, commented for the first time on the NFL's new and controversial national-anthem policy. He believes the focus should be on the social-reform work that is being done. "All that other stuff, it's a talking point for people that try to rally bases and get people involved in all these goofy things," he said. "At the end of the day, the work needs to be done."

Non-quarterback takeaways from minicamp practice No. 1: A strong day for TE Neal Sterling, who continues to flash ... Good day for the older WRs, Jermaine Kearse and Andre Roberts ... Rookie RB Trent Cannon a bit unsteady fielding punt returns ... LB Darron Lee is making most of the defensive calls, per Todd Bowles. Demario Davis had that job last year ... Rookie CB Parry Nickerson missed an INT chance on a telegraphed sideline pass by Sam Darnold ... Isaiah Crowell not as fluid a receiver as Bilal Powell.

Hackenberg's Raiders tenure ends after 3 weeks

The Raiders on Tuesday cut quarterback Christian Hackenberg, three weeks after acquiring the 2016 second-round pick from the Jets for a conditional draft pick.

Injury update: WR Quincy Enunwa, who sat out last season due to neck surgery, practiced for the first time with a helmet. He didn't participate in team drills, only positional drills, but it's still a significant step for a player coming off a serious neck injury. He won't be in team drills in minicamp, but he's expected to be cleared for training camp, according to Todd Bowles.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Rookie QB Sam Darnold took 12 of the 50 reps with the first-team offense and was workmanlike in the Jets' first minicamp practice. His worst moment was a telegraphed sideline pass that should've been intercepted. He hit Robby Anderson on a deep ball, but it was underthrown, causing Anderson to pause on his route. Darnold's best moment came in a red-zone period, when he looked off a defender and zipped a 5-yard TD to Eric Tomlinson. Bottom line: Darnold is making mistakes, but he avoids calamitous turnovers. That's encouraging, especially after 22 turnovers last season for USC.
