McCareins fails conditioning test

In a surprising move, Jets coach Eric Mangini didn't allow veteran wide receiver Justin McCareins to take part in the team's first practice of training camp.

Mangini says the reason McCareins was held out, wasn't related to the leg injury the wide receiver suffered in June's minicamp.

The coach kept McCareins and cornerback Rayshun Reed out of the first session because they didn't pass the team's conditioning test on Thursday.

This is surprising news, considering McCareins has always been known as a diligent worker.

The coach said McCareins and Reed will be allowed to practice again, once they pass the test.
