The running back, sidelined all of training camp by a lingering hamstring injury, joined teammates in 9-on-7 drills Monday in Cortland, N.Y., according to ESPNNewYork.com. Ivory got right to work, taking handoffs on the first two plays of the session.
"I hope he does play Saturday," Ryan said. "He's a big powerful man. I think every Jet fan is looking forward to seeing him run."
Not all the news was good for Jets backs. Joe McKnight's bizarre training camp continued Monday morning when he dropped to one knee three times during the walk to the Jets' practice field. McKnight eventually made it to the field, but he lasted just 45 minutes into practice before being escorted to the locker room by trainers. We're not sure what's going on with McKnight, but it doesn't sound good.
Two other Jets were dealing with injuries as well. Multiple beat reporters remarked that quarterback Geno Smith -- who started practice with the first team -- was not moving well on his sprained ankle. Antonio Cromartie suffered an arm injury during practice, but he stayed in practice after being looked at by trainers. He finished the session with a sleeve on his arm.
