  • Jets' John Franklin-Myers: In line to play Sunday

    Franklin-Myers (quadriceps/toe) is slated to play Sunday against the Bengals, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

He's been dealing with toe and quadriceps injuries as of late, but his ability to participate in full during Friday's session indicates he'll be ready to reclaim his starting role on the Jets' defensive line Sunday against the Bengals, whose offensive line has given up a league-high 13 sacks through the first two weeks.
