The Jets will be in full pads on Monday for the first time. Even they haven’t had contact yet there are still injuries to deal with. Here is the initial update from head coach Todd Bowles.
ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen…
We’re still bringing Stewart along slowly. He did a lot of individual (drills) today. Hansen is the same way. We just want to make sure they clear (the medical staff’s approval) and everything is healthy before we work them into team (drills) and everything.
He tweaked his back yesterday as well, so we rested him today.
Morris Claiborne missing practice on Sunday…
Yes, it’s for personal reasons and he’ll be back tomorrow.
On if Ben Ijalana was cleared to return to practice today…
He did a lot more today. He didn’t do as much as we wanted him to do, but he worked himself back into the team drills today and, as he feels better tomorrow and the next day, he’ll get more and more.
