Sheldon Richardson is back with the team after serving his four game suspension.
Bowles said he hasn't decided if he'll start Sheldon vs #Redskins. #Jets will do game-planning stuff Wednesday

Ryan Fitzpatrick gave his thoughts on the first practice after the bye week.
It was good just to get a sweat in and get some work. We started our focus on the Redskins today and put in the preliminary game plan and started going over that. It’s always good to get an extra day of work in against an opponent.
On if he found players to be recharged following the bye week…
I think that whenever the bye week comes it’s always at a good time because it’s nice to get away for a little bit mentally and physically – just get refreshed. I think it was helpful for us.
On if he watches football during bye weeks…
I watch. I’ve got plenty of friends, whether they’re coaches or players around the league that I never get a chance to see play and coach. Usually I’ll have the games on. Some of it involved being lazy and sitting on the couch, some of it was chasing kids around and trying to look up when I could. It’s always fun to watch those games.
