Nickerson (hamstring) worked into Saturday's no-pad practice but sat out Sunday, Matt Stypulkoski of NJ.com reports.
Nickerson is a speedy corner that has a chance to log consistent snaps in the Jets' secondary. The biggest opportunity for Nickerson to showcase his abilities will be during Friday's preseason game against the Giants, but he simply needs to get healthy first.
Nickerson did not participate in Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Nickerson dropped to the Jets in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft despite tying for the fastest 40-yard dash time at the combine. It's unclear how severe the hamstring injury is, but there is a decent chance Nickerson plays a role in the Jets secondary this season as a rookie so long as he gets healthy.
