Jets get a day off, but not newbie quarterback Matt Flynn

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Thursday morning's wake-up call, Day 22 of New York Jets training camp:

What's happening: There is no practice, as the Jets rest before they play the Atlanta Falcons on Friday night at MetLife Stadium. The next practice will be Sunday at Hofstra University, their annual "Family Night" practice on Long Island.

What's hot: It won't be a day of R&R for newly-signed quarterback Matt Flynn, who is taking a crash course in Chan Gailey 101. Flynn is four months behind the other quarterbacks, who started learning Gailey's playbook in April. You have to figure he'll spend a long day in the classroom, learning. The well-traveled Flynn said there are some similarities in terminology between Gailey's offense and the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots' systems -- two of his past teams -- but he's essentially starting from square one. He's also recovering from an old hamstring injury. Obviously, he won't play against the Falcons, but the hope is that he could ready for a cameo the following week against the New York Giants. Flynn can't assume he will be on the 53-man roster. "No guarantees," he said.
