Jets' Ridley (knee) practices for first time this season

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets running back Stevan Ridley has practiced for the first time this season and could face the New England Patriots, his former teammates.

Ridley is currently on the physically unable to perform list after tearing the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee while with the Patriots last season.

Coach Todd Bowles says Wednesday that there's ''a chance'' Ridley could play Sunday. Ridley was a full participant at practice, but Bowles wants to see how he feels as the week progresses.

Cornerback Dee Milliner, on short-term injured reserve, also fully participated but must miss two more games before he can be activated.

Cornerback Buster Skrine (concussion), safety Jaiquawn Jarrett (knee) and running back Bilal Powell (ankle) all sat out.
