Basham (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
Basham was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins due to a knee injury, but appears to have fully recovered. The second-year defensive end appears on track for the Jets' matchup against New Orleans in Week 10, and is expected to play a rotational role.
Basham was waived by the Colts on Thursday but he didn't even hit the open market. A knee injury prevented from Basham participating in the offseason as much as he would have liked, and his chances of sticking with the Colts suffered as a result. He'll now have a new opportunity in New York.
Basham was waived by the Colts on Thursday, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.
Basham seemed on track to earn a key defensive role in Indianapolis, but he was sidetracked due to a knee injury all offseason and ultimately waived. The 2017 third-rounder will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers.
Basham (knee) is not among the players listed on Tuesday's injury report.
Basham required multiple stitches for a minor knee laceration in late August, but it wasn't expected to cost him any regular-season action. His absence from the injury report furthers that notion.
