Watch: Jeremy Ruckert scores touchdown in first game with New York Jets


Lindenhurst finds the end zone!

Jeremy Ruckert, the Long Islander selected in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the New York Jets, didn’t take long to score his first touchdown as a pro.

It happened Friday during the fourth quarter of the Jets’ first pre-season action. The game was against the Philadelphia Eagles.

On play action on the Eagles’ one-yard line, Jets fourth string QB Chris Streveler found his tight end for a wide-open, go-ahead score.

Watch it here:

Ruckert, who returned to practice this week after missing time due to a foot injury, finished the game with an additional catch for a total of three yards.

The Jets would go on to win the game 24-21. They return to action Monday, Aug. 22, against the Atlanta Falcons.
