TheNew York Jetsgot a modicum of positive injury news Friday.
Coach Adam Gase told reporters that running backLe’Veon Bellis expected to return to practice on Saturday. When New York’s injury report came out on Friday afternoon, Bell was listed as a limited participant in Friday’s practice.
Bell sat out practices this week and underwent an MRI for a shoulder issue. Gase said it stemmed from the feature back being too aggressive in practice. The running back tweeted Thursday afternoon that everything went well with the scan.
With Bell back at practice, he should be good to go for Monday night’s tilt versus theCleveland Browns. GivenSam Darnold‘sabsence due to mononucleosis, starterTrevor Siemianwill need as much help from Bell as he can get.
In other Gang Green injury news, Gase said linebackerC.J. Mosley(groin) and defensive tackleQuinnen Williams(ankle) are progressing well, and he wouldn’t rule them out for Monday’s game, even if they don’t practice this weekend. Neither player practiced Friday.
In otherJetsinjury news, safetyJamal Adams(hip) practiced fully; OLKelvin Beachum(ankle), DLSteve McLendon(hip) and OLBrian Winters(shoulder) were limited; and WRDemaryius Thomas(hamstring) did not participate.
