CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) New York Jets safety Calvin Pryor, the team's first-round draft pick, has returned to practice on a limited basis as he recovers from a concussion.

Pryor wore a red, no-contact jersey Thursday during positional drills after being cleared for physical activity by team doctors. He still has yet to be cleared for physical contact as he goes through the NFL's protocol for head injuries.

Once Pryor is cleared for contact, he will be able to take part in team drills.

The No. 18 overall pick out of Louisville was injured Saturday during a kickoff and sat out the past three practices.

Cornerback Dexter McDougle, a third-round pick, left practice early with a strained groin.
