FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Darrelle Revis is almost ready to return. Next up: a full practice.

The New York Jets cornerback sat out team drills, along with center Nick Mangold and linebacker David Harris, on Thursday while recovering from injuries.

Revis missed the game at Pittsburgh after tweaking a hamstring against Seattle on Oct. 2. He participated in individual drills and felt good after running at top speed for the first time since getting hurt.

“Hopefully, (Friday), they put more on my plate,” Revis said, “and I can practice with the team.”

Revis has struggled a bit this season, but he would provide a boost to the secondary if he can play at Arizona on Monday night.

“I felt good, really good,” Revis said. “It was good to be out there on the field.”

Darryl Roberts, Revis’ replacement at Pittsburgh, was a full participant after leaving the 31-13 loss with a shoulder injury.

Mangold has a sore knee that got banged up against the Steelers, while Harris has a sore hamstring. Both left the game and didn’t return, and their status for Monday - like Revis’ - is uncertain.

“We have the extra day,” coach Todd Bowles said of preparing for a Monday night game. “They’re progressing along. I’ll just wait and see day by day. I’ll probably get a better feel on Friday.”

Right guard Brian Winters (concussion), tight ends Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) and Braedon Bowman (knee), defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (foot) and left tackle Ryan Clady (left shoulder) were all limited.

Third-string quarterback Bryce Petty was a full participant at practice for the first time since injuring his right shoulder during the preseason. He and rookie Christian Hackenberg will likely share scout-team snaps behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and backup Geno Smith.

“Geno gets a lot of first-team reps, too, because you never know,” Bowles said. “If Fitzpatrick goes down, somebody is going to have to play, so Geno has been getting all of those reps, too. You kind of divide them up between Hackenberg and Petty.”

Rookie wide receiver Jalin Marshall practiced fully for the first time since injuring a shoulder at Kansas City in Week 3. Marshall had been inactive the last two games with a torn labrum, but he could help fill the void left by Eric Decker , who is done for the season with a torn right rotator cuff.

Marshall was the Jets‘ primary kick and punt returner during the first three games, but cornerback Nick Marshall - signed off Jacksonville’s practice squad - could also be used in that role.

“When I was in Indianapolis (last season), we played against him and he did a nice job against us,” special teams coordinator Brant Boyer said of Nick Marshall. “I think he’s definitely in the mix, for sure.”
