The Jets got bad injury news on defense in recent days, but Tuesday saw some positive developments on the offensive side of the ball.

First-round guard Alijah Vera-Tucker and second-round wide receiver Elijah Moore are both on the practice field for the team’s joint workout with the Eagles. Vera-Tucker has been sideline by a pectoral injury and Moore has been out since hurting his quad a couple of weeks ago.

Both rookies are doing individual work on Tuesday and a full return to practice might not come for a bit, but head coach Robert Saleh said Monday that he was concerned about the missed reps for both players so any step toward the lineup is a welcome development for two of the Jets’ top three picks this year.

The Jets will work out with the Eagles again on Wednesday and close out the preseason with a game on Friday. If that’s too soon for Vera-Tucker and Moore, the Jets will focus on having them ready for the Panthers in Week One.
