Hall, who rushed for 463 yards and had five total touchdowns in his rookie season before he tore an ACL in Week 7 against the Denver Broncos, will now ramp up with the hopes of being ready for the Week 1 Monday night matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
Hall’s return to the practice field comes a day after the Jets agreed to sign running back Dalvin Cook to give the Jets a formidable 1-2 punch at the position.
The addition of Cook should allow the Jets to ease Hall, the team’s No. 1 running back, back into action.
Cook, who was released June 8 by the Minnesota Vikings after four straight Pro Bowl seasons, plans to sign a one-year contract worth up to $8.6 million, a source told Schefter on Monday.
Cook is still at least a week away from being able to practice as he recovers from shoulder surgery he underwent in February, a source told Schefter. His arrival also will be delayed as he’s expecting to become a first-time father soon.
