A right ankle injury suffered in the first preseason game and subsequent injury has kept defensive end/linebacker Quinton Coples off the field for the past five weeks. That looks likely to change heading into this Sunday’s game.

Coples was again on the practice field, albeit limited on Thursday, as he makes strides and looks ready to play in some capacity. He participated in some team drills as the Jets were in pads on Thursday.

He was among those in pads but he’s not certain about his status or how many snaps he can play Sunday.

“I don’t know. The trainers, they have set time limits a time scale,” Coples said. “They give estimates. But other than that, I didn’t know. I’ve never been injured before, so I didn’t know.”

Head coach Rex Ryan gushed over the recovery time of Coples and his work ethic to get back on the field so fast.

“Man he looks good out there,” Ryan said.

Jets notes …

» Defensive end Sheldon Richardson was limited on Thursday as he continues to heal from a left shoulder injury. Richardson told Metro yesterday that the injury was merely “a stinger.”

» Ryan said that rookie tackle Oday Aboushi suffered a knee injury in practice on Thursday morning. Metro has learned that it is a right knee injury but the source said it isn’t serious.

» Santonio Holmes was held out of practice, part of the “pitch count” to help the wide receiver stay healthy just 11 months after a season-ending Lisfranc injury last year. Ryan made it clear the absence by Holmes was planned but joked, “As far as Buffalo knows, he’s very questionable for the game.”
