Jets beat writer Brian Costello is reporting that Jets OLB Antwan Barnes is back at practice today as the Jets consider removing him from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Barnes has been out since October of last season with a knee injury. While the Jets have had no issues getting to the quarterback this season, an additional pass rusher is always a welcome addition. Barnes is eligible to come off of the PUP today and they will have 21 days to do so. If the Jets do not activate Barnes in 21 days, they’ll be forced to place him on Injured Reserve according to Costello.
