Jets' Bryan Little: Could return Tuesday

Little (lower body) may be ready to suit up against New Jersey on Tuesday, Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Little has been out of the lineup since Opening Night, missing a total of 23 games thus far. If he is able to go, the center could slot into the second line alongside Blake Wheeler and Drew Stafford, but according to coach Paul Maurice, a final determination on Little's status will not be made until after Tuesday's morning skate.
