After enjoying a bye in Week 10, the New England Patriots are getting healthier ahead of their Week 11 home date with the New York Jets.

That includes wide receiver DeVante Parker, who returned to practice on Monday from a knee injury.

DeVante Parker Injury Update

Assuming Parker doesn't suffer any setbacks this week, he appears on track to play for the first time since Week 8, when he appeared in only one play before going down with a knee injury. The injury kept him out of New England's Week 9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, but after two weeks off he's ready to practice again.

The former Miami Dolphin would give the Patriots' offense a boost if he does return this weekend. He was starting to appear more comfortable in New England's scheme before his injury, topping 60 receiving yards in back-to-back weeks and averaging 62.4 receiving yards per game from Weeks 3-7.

Parker would give quarterback Mac Jones another weapon against a formidable Jets secondary that is giving up the second-fewest passing TDs and ninth-fewest passing yards per game this season. He might also be extra motivated to beat New York after sustaining his injury against them.

The Patriots are currently listed as 3.5-point home favorites against the Jets on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds for this AFC East clash.
