CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - There were no shirtless jogs through the rain this time around.
Hours after suspending their training camp practice Sunday morning because of severe storms that included lightning, coach Rex Ryan announced the team would practice later in the day on the turf field at SUNY Cortland as skies began to clear.
``Obviously, we had to do some major improvising,'' Ryan said.
The washed-out practice came on the one-year anniversary of perhaps the most-discussed - and replayed - moment from last season's camp: Tim Tebow's post-practice shirtless jog through the rain.
Shortly after the start of practice at 10 a.m. - scheduled to be the first in full pads - drenching rains and lightning swept through the Cortland area. The Jets suspended practice and fans were told to leave as the team sloshed their way back inside the field house.
``When the lightning came, that changed a lot of things,'' Ryan said. ``If you don't have the lightning, we would've gone right at it.''
The Jets don't have an indoor facility at Cortland to hold a full practice, so the team held its walkthrough - normally several hours after the practice - in a gymnasium on campus.
It's the first time since the team moved training camp to central New York in 2009 that it had to take a workout session inside. However, their home facility has a full indoor field in Florham Park, N.J.
