The Jets took a step in the right direction as quarterback Sam Darnold returned to practice Wednesday, but New York's injury report remained cluttered with key players on both sides.
While the Jets' starter recovers from mononucleosis with an eye on a return at some point in October as the day-to-day recovery continues, linebackers CJ Mosley (groin) and Jordan Jenkins (calf) were among those held out.
While neither Darnold nor Mosley has not played since Sept. 8's 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the season opener, Jenkins missed Sept. 22's 30-14 loss to the New England Patriots.
Running back Trenton Cannon (hamstring/ankle), offensive lineman Kelechi Osmeles (shoulder/knee) and wide receiver Demaryious Thomas (hamstring) rounded out the others to not participate.
Wide receiver Josh Bellamy (shoulder), defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (ankle) and tight end Dan Brown (ankle) were limited. Cornerbacks Brian Poole and Darryl Roberts joined offensive lineman Brian Winters (shoudler) on the field as full participants.
Like Darnold and Mosley, Williams last played in Week 1. The Jets (0-3) return from an idle Week 4 with Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff against the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) at Lincoln Financial Field.
