Similar to Sunday’s update on the three injured Jets players which followed the Jets game day on Saturday, with yesterday being a game day once again the health updates may have been overshadowed.  Coach Maurice during his availability following the Jets morning skate on Monday provided health updates on three of his injured players being Laurent Brossoit, Dustin Byfuglien & Josh Morrissey.

Dustin Byfuglien was wearing a yellow non-contact uniform on Monday and coach Maurice was asked about his big D man “This is the first big step, put on the non-contact and skate with the guys.  We’ll get him into a full practice on Wednesday and then kinda move forward from there.  He’s been able to do quite a bit off ice, which has been good, so he doesn’t feel far off it.  Dustin is one of those guys, for the most part, that could miss a couple of weeks, throw his gear on and you can’t tell.  So that’s positive.  There is a certain timeline for the doctors to say OK there is the proper amount of healing, if he feels good he can go, and this is the week, this past week, where he’s starting to come into the rink saying, ya I’m feel pretty darn good.”.

He was also asked about Josh Morrissey and Laurent Brossoit the Jets bench boss indicated “Josh has a window.  He’s right where he’s supposed to be.  We’ll consider Laurent for the full skate in a couple of days.  So he’s not far off getting back into the full rhythm.  Whether we have him back up for the Island I’m not sure yet.”
