Jets right tackle George Fant returned to practice on Thursday. Fant missed last Sunday’s game against Miami. He also missed practice on Wednesday. He was a limited participant in Thursday’s practice, but the trajectory over the course of the week matters as much as anything.
Fant’s linemate on the offensive line Alex Lewis did not, however, return to practice. He once again sat out for reasons not related to injury just as he did on Wednesday. Lewis was also deactivated for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. The team hasn’t been forthright about what is going on so we have no idea what the reasons are for Lewis’ recent absences. The Jets coaching staff just seems laser focused on being evasive and creating yet another unnecessary distraction.
The full injury report for Thursday is below.
The final injury report of the week will come out tomorrow along with statuses for Sunday’s game.
