The Jets may finally have their starting offensive line together in Sunday’s season finale against the Patriots.

New York designated guards Alex Lewis and Greg Van Roten to return to practice this week in preparation for Week 17. Josh Andrews and Pat Elflein have taken the place of Lewis and Van Roten while they’ve been out.

Lewis has been on the NFI list since Dec. 4, when he had to take care of some personal issues. Prior to that, Lewis started in nine games for the Jets this season at left guard.

As for Van Roten, he’s been out since Dec. 12 with a foot injury. He was the Jets’ starting right guard for 12 games before going down with the injury. Van Roten had not missed a single snap until he got injured.
