The New York Jets held their first public practice of their 2014 training camp on Thursday.

The team will practice on the SUNY Cortland campus through mid-August, but may not see better weather than they saw to start camp.

“It went pretty good,” said newly-acquired running back Chris Johnson. “The weather wasn’t too hot, or whatever. It was a pretty good day.”

Johnson said he felt good after his first practice following off-season knee surgery.

“The best part, I think, is the weather,” said quarterback Geno Smith. “It’s not that typical scorching heat that you get during this time of the year.”

The Jets will hold 19 public practices before leaving town in mid-August.
