AP source: Jets begin private player workouts



NEW YORK (AP) — A person with knowledge of the situation says Mark Sanchez and about 40 of his New York Jets teammates have begun practicing together at an undisclosed location in New Jersey.

The player-run practices, organized by Sanchez, will go through Wednesday and include offensive and defensive players. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Monday on condition of anonymity because the players want the sessions to remain private to the media and public.

Several NFL teams have gotten together on their own in recent weeks because the players are not allowed to train at the team facilities because of the ongoing lockout. Teams normally would be preparing for minicamp workouts now.

The Jets’ workouts were first reported by ESPNNewYork.com.
