Jets running back Michael Carter had to be separated from position coach Taylor Embry on the sideline during the second half of Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
Carter, who is No. 3 on the depth chart behind Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook, was seen yelling at Embry as he walked away.
Carter attempted to go after Embry, but teammates Xavier Gipson and Justin Hardy intervened, as seen during the CBS telecast.
Just before Carter heated up with Embree, the third-down back was knocked down by a blitz by Patriots safety Kyle Dugger, and that play may have been the source of the dispute.
Early in the second half, receiver Garrett Wilson became animated on the sideline during a conversation with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and quarterback Zach Wilson.
Garrett pointed to the iPad screen Hackett was holding, as if asking why he couldn’t see him.
It’s clear that frustration is boiling over with the Jets’ offense. The Jets’ offense was expected to be one of the NFL’s most explosive with quarterback Aaron Rodgers at the controls, but with Zach Wilson filling in, the Jets’ offense is paying for last year’s incompetence. It became. Rodgers is injured.
Carter had one catch in three years, but no carries at the time of the sideline incident.
