The Jets were expecting to get another weapon back to their offense this week, but their luck continues to go sideways. 

Tight end Chris Herndon, who has been suspended the past four games due to violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, suffered a hamstring injury, head coach Adam Gase revealed on Wednesday. His injury occurred while running routes in preparation for his return this week. 

Gase was blunt when asked about his reaction to Herndon's injury.

The Jets took a step in the right direction as quarterback Sam Darnold returned to practice Wednesday, but New York's injury report remained cluttered with key players on both sides.

While the Jets' starter recovers from mononucleosis with an eye on a return at some point in October as the day-to-day recovery continues, linebackers CJ Mosley (groin) and Jordan Jenkins (calf) were among those held out.

While neither Darnold nor Mosley has not played since Sept. 8's 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the season opener, Jenkins missed Sept. 22's 30-14 loss to the New England Patriots.

Throughout the offseason, the Jets have responded to any suggestion that they were undermanned at the center position by stating their confidence in Jonotthan Harrison. Head coach Adam Gase said Harrison had "done a great job" and insisted that Sam Darnold had a good comfort level with him.

However, today's announcement that they've lured former pro bowl center Ryan Kalil out of retirement suggests that they never gave up looking for alternatives. Kalil signed a one-year deal, worth a reported $8.4 million - starter money for sure - and will join up with the Jets at training camp this week.

There weren't many center options on the market this year but having opted not to get into a bidding war for free agents like Matt Paradis and Mitch Morse and then failed to draft one, the Jets looked set to have to stick with the incumbent starter Harrison. Kalil wasn't on anyone's radar after the 34-year-old retired at the end of last season, having implied all season it was to be his last.
