McGuire (foot) returned to practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. McGuire's ability to practice at this stage suggests he has a shot to return from injured reserve when first eligible Week 9 against the Dolphins. He injured his foot in the early days of training camp and had surgery in late July, eventually landing on IR after final roster cuts. McGuire's potential return could lead to workload reductions for both Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell, with the second-year pro representing a greater threat than current No. 3 back Trenton Cannon.
McGuire (foot) is eligible to return to practice this week, but coach Todd Bowles said no decision has been made, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. McGuire could be activated to play in Week 9's game against the Dolphins. With Trenton Cannon being kept out of the Jets' game plans, McGuire could be a solid complement to Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell. McGuire rushed 88 times for 315 yards and one touchdown while catching 17 of 26 targets for 177 yards and a score in 2017.
The Jets placed McGuire (foot) on injured reserve Monday, Connor Hughes of The Athletic New York reports. As a survivor of roster cuts this weekend, McGuire will be eligible for activation from IR in 2018. However, he must sit out the first eight weeks of the season as he recovers from a broken foot. His first opportunity to suit up will be Sunday, Nov. 4 against the Dolphins, assuming his rehab goes without a hitch. Until then, the Jets will entrust Isaiah Crowell (undisclosed), Bilal Powell and rookie Trenton Cannon with backfield duties.
McGuire (foot) is having surgery Monday and likely will be out for about six weeks, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Prior to fracturing his foot at Friday's practice, McGuire was expected to have a role in the Jets' backfield committee alongside Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell. The second-year pro will instead focus on his rehab from surgery, hoping to get back on the practice field at some point in September. McGuire is a strong candidate to start the season on the PUP list, which would rule him out through Week 6. The Jets brought in Alfred Morris and Orleans Darkwa for workouts, but they may just let Trenton Cannon and Thomas Rawls duke it out for the No. 3 running back job.
McGuire sustained a fracture in his foot and could be placed on injured reserve, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. After limping off the practice field Friday, McGuire will undergo surgery to repair his foot. The length of his rehab will determine whether he's a candidate to return from injured reserve, per Rapoport, indicating he's in danger of missing the entire season. While Isaiah Crowell and Bilal Powell may now assume heftier workloads, the Jets are working out a potential replacement for McGuire in veteran Alfred Morris, according to Rapoport.
