Franklin-Myers (hip) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Coach Robert Saleh indicated earlier in the week he believed Franklin-Myers would be good to go by Sunday's game versus New England, and his presence at practice Thursday aligns with his coach's confidence. Even so, he'll likely need to practice in full Friday to avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

Should be good by Sunday

Franklin-Myers (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Despite missing practice, Costello also reported that Franklin-Myers is expected to be good to go for Sunday against the Patriots, according to head coach Robert Saleh. However, his status will still be worth monitoring throughout the week, and if he's unable to play, Will McDonald and Byre Huff will likely be tasked with larger roles Week 3.

Returns to camp

Franklin-Myers (groin) is present at Jets camp Tuesday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

Franklin-Myers had missed a few training camp days this past week as he was dealing with a groin injury, but it seems as if he's moved past the issue. The Stephen F. Austin product recorded a career-high in tackles last season (38) along with five sacks, so expect JFM to continue playing with New York's first-team defense now that he's healthy once again.

Absent Sunday

Franklin-Myers (groin) was not present at practice Sunday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Franklin-Myers has been dealing with groin tightness that flared up during one-on-one drills Wednesday. Once healthy, he'll look to resume his starting role on the defensive line alongside veterans Carl Lawson, Quinnen Williams and Quinton Jefferson.

Dealing with groin tightness

Head coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Franklin-Myers is dealing with groin tightness, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Saleh adds that the groin issue became a problem during one-on-one drills Wednesday, but the veteran defensive end initially played through the pain before team trainers pulled him out of practice. The injury may cost Franklin-Myers a few days of practice, but it isn't expected to be a long-term absence.

Five sacks in 2022

Franklin-Myers racked up 38 tackles (16 solo), five sacks and one pass defensed while playing all 17 games in 2022.

Franklin-Myers set a new career high in tackles by three while coming one sack short of his 2021 total. The versatile defensive lineman can line up along the edge or on the interior, and he's expected to remain a key defensive piece for the Jets in 2023, which will be the second year of a four-year, $55 million contract. JFM was involved in one of the low points of New York's once-promising 7-10 season, as a controversial roughing the passer penalty on Franklin-Myers wiped out a pick-six in a five-point, Week 8 loss to New England.
