Before answering questions during his Wednesday press conference, Jets head coach Adam Gase dished out some injury updates and rookie DT Quinnen Williams had the best one.
Williams has been dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out of Monday Night Football against the Browns. However, Gase says everything is trending in the right direction for him to return to practice on Thursday.
Gase noted that Williams, the team's No. 3 overall draft pick back in April, won't be at practice today. Instead, he'll be working on his strength and conditioning, but he's expecting him to be back out there with the team tomorrow. That's big news as the Jets will want as many of their best players on the field as possible against the Patriots this week.
C.J. Mosley is another player the Jets would love back, but though Gase said he's also progressing well, he didn't mention him returning to practice.
"It's positive but groin injuries -- you have to be careful," Gase said about Mosley's status. "Don't want him to re-injure himself."
The final two updates Gase delivered were about LB Jordan Jenkins (calf) and WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring). Jenkins is still dealing with his injury, and Gase said it is at a week-to-week status at the moment.
As for the newly-acquired receiver in Thomas, the Jets didn't have him practice all of last week, but he was still active on Monday night. That's when he suffered his hamstring injury, something Gase noted he is progressing well with at the moment.
