The news is getting better on the injury front for the Jets. We still don’t have an update on Mekhi Becton but Michael Carter, the running back, and Michael Carter, the defensive back, will both be back for the Dolphins game on Sunday.
Here is the official update that Robert Saleh gave the media on Wednesday.
George Fant, knee; (Sheldon) Rankins, knee; Isaiah Dunn, non-COVID illness, will all be out of practice today, not worried about Fant or Rankins for the game. Isaiah, I think he’ll be fine, too.
Good news, we are getting (Tevin) Coleman back, MC1 (Michael Carter), MC2 (Michael Carter II), (Tyler) Kroft and (Bryce) Huff, so that’s good. And we’re also getting (Trevon) Wesco back, so that’s good.
On a sad note, but it’s good for him, Josh Johnson was just poached by the Ravens, so really excited for him and his opportunity. He deserves it, one of the elite pros in this league.
He’s actually dealing with another illness. It’s non-COVID, but he hasn’t been able to get up to speed with his cardiovascular to clear all that, so we’re day-to-day with him.
Who is on the COVID list?
It’s just Hardee and Jeff Smith. Cashman, he’s on IR (too). And then, obviously Mike White is still there because he hasn’t been able to clear the cardiovascular part with the new illness.
