Jets second-year S Marcus Maye has had to watch for the past three weeks, but he was finally back out with his teammates on Wednesday for his first practice in over a month.
Maye, who has been out with a foot injury, may not have practiced fully, but it was the most action we've seen from the Florida product. He says it was finally good to get back out on the field.
"I feel pretty good," he told The Post's Brian Costello. "I got out there today for the first time and ran around for a little bit and felt pretty good."
Getting Maye back on the field next to fellow 2017 draft pick Jamal Adams is the ultimate goal, and it could be as early as this Sunday against the Jags. Adams would love to see that happen.
"Oh man, that's my boy back there," he said. "[We're a] one-two punch and we understand each other when we're in the back end. We feed off each other as far as energy, confidence. Just to have him back out there, when that time comes, it's definitely going to be a fun time for me."
"We talk about it all the time," Maye added on coming back. "He's been doing a great job. Jamal's been making a ton of plays. The guys have been doing a great job communicating and doing the best they can. Once I get back out there, I'm just looking to jump in and just catch on. That's what I'm looking forward to."
Maye's foot injury occurred during the Jets' Week 3 preseason game against the Giants. It isn't known what exactly is wrong with the foot, but it has been severe enough to where he has been watching from the sideline -- something he says is frustrating.
"[It's been] pretty frustrating just sitting on the sideline watching," Maye said. "Nobody likes that. Just trying to get out there with the guys and knowing you can help out. When you can't, it's definitely frustrating. If I get a chance to get out there this week, it will definitely be a positive thing."
