Since training camp the Jets have been dealing with a lot of injuries at the wide receiver position. The team got some good news today.
Rookie Denzel Mims was among the players the team designated to return to practice from injured reserve.

Head coach Adam Gase did not commit to Mims suiting up for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.
Rookie WR Denzel Mims (hamstrings) will also return to practice today, which is more good news for the Jets.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) October 14, 2020
Does he have a chance to play Sunday? Said Adam Gase: "We'll see how that goes. I thought that the last time and it didn't work out."
Still this is clearly a step in the right direction.
Along with Mims, Breshad Perriman was also back at practice on Wednesday, albeit in a limited capacity.
The full injury report is posted below.
Perriman has been out of the lineup since the Week 2 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Although quarterback Sam Darnold has already been ruled out of this weekend’s game against the Dolphins, this is the healthiest the wide receiver position has been for the Jets since the start of the regular season. At least something is trending in the right direction.
