CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Jets have activated starting right guard Willie Colon from the active/physically unable to perform list, and he is practicing for the first time at training camp.
Colon had offseason arthroscopic knee surgery in late May. He is in full pads and participating in some drills Sunday after missing the first three days of practice. Brian Winters, who started at left guard last season, and Oday Aboushi had been filling in for Colon.
Coach Rex Ryan said Saturday that Colon was ''real close'' to returning.
The 31-year-old Colon was re-signed by the Jets in March to a one-year, $2 million deal. He started all 16 games last season, but was recovering from a torn right biceps in the season finale before dealing with the knee issue.
