David Harris could give New York a boost at middle linebacker.Getty Images

A prominent part of the New York Jets defense, middle linebacker David Harris, is making progress from a right knee injury suffered in the win over the Miami Dolphins prior to the bye week.

Harris was listed as limited in Wednesday’s practice but a team source tells Metro that Harris “is making good progress and should play this weekend.” The Jets are coming off a bye following a Week 4 win at the Miami Dolphins. It was a solid game from the Jets but they emerged battered and dinged up.

The bye week gave them a good chance to rest up.

“David looked like he was running around well,” head coach Todd Bowles said on Wednesday. “Bilal [Powell] was limited today. Let’s see if he does more tomorrow.”


Wide receiver Chris Owusu (knee), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (knee) and cornerback Marcus Williams (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.
