FLORHAM PARK, N.J.?After an injury in the first preseason game of the year, Jets fans haven?t seen Eric Smith on the field and contributing at safety. The good news is that the countdown on his return might be coming to an end.

Head coach Rex Ryan upgraded Smith on Thursday, saying that his safety is ?limited? in practice after having been relegated to working with the trainers the past couple weeks. Smith had knee and hip injuries that kept him from his normal heavy workload on the team and he sighed a bit when asked about his health and a possible return this Sunday in Miami.

?I?m tired of being asked that. Feeling better than I was, making progress,? Smith told The Jets Blog.
