The New York Jets activated running back Khiry Robinson from the active/physically-unable-to-perform list Monday after he sat out the start of training camp while rehabilitating from a broken right leg.
Robinson was limited to position drills, but it marked the first time he was on the field participating in any portion of practice since he was signed by the Jets in March as a free agent. He briefly worked in the rehab area after going through running back drills, then watched the rest of practice from the sideline.
"He was only scheduled to do individuals," coach Todd Bowles said, referring to the trainers' plans.
Robinson joins a Jets banged-up backfield that includes just three healthy players: Bilal Powell, Romar Morris and Dominique Williams. Both Matt Forte and Bernard Pierce are both dealing with hamstring injuries and are unlikely to play in the preseason opener Thursday against Jacksonville.
Bowles said it was too early to rule out Robinson for Thursday's game.
"We're going to take a look at him tomorrow and see how he's feeling, if he has any after-day soreness and we'll make a game-time decision." >> Read more
