FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Newly signed cornerback LeQuan Lewis -- who called himself a "new old guy” may be late to the New York Jets' squad, but the second-year player out of Arizona State made an impression with two interceptions during Wednesday's practice.
The first set of roster cuts comes on Saturday, so time is of the essence.
WR Jalen Saunders, who isn't practicing after a medical incident, was on the sideline, and LB Antwan Barnes is still on the physically unable to perform list. CB Dex McDougle said via Twitter that he was having surgery on a torn ACL Wednesday, and coach Rex Ryan said he would likely land on the reserve/injured list afterwards.
The Jets got several injured players back, including C Nick Mangold (toe), CB Dimitri Patterson (leg), CB Ras-I Dowling (groin), WR Eric Decker and TE Jeff Cumberland. "We're starting to get healthy and that's a good thing,” Ryan said.
The Jets weren't in pads for their final training camp practice in Florham Park. On Thursday the team moves to Hofstra, site of their former headquarters.
