For the second straight day, Stephen Hill was on the practice field. But this time, the Jets second-year wideout was wearing a red non-contact pinnie and shells. It’s a step in the right direction for Hill, who suffered a concussion in the first quarter of Sunday’s game in Tennessee.

Rex Ryan confirmed Stephen Hill suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans. The second-year receiver -- who was injured on the second play of the game -- is currently undergoing the league-mandated concussion protocol. It's too soon to tell if Hill will be medically cleared in time for the Jets Monday Night game in Atlanta.  On Smith’s first pass attempt of the game, he threw late...
