Jets RB Leon Washington expects to be on the field when the Jets play their first game next season.
The optimistic running back said Tuesday that doctors have told him his broken right leg is two months ahead of a normal recovery, and he expects to be off crutches next week.
“Everything’s looking on the up and up, and I’m just looking forward to when I can start jogging,” Washington said. “I’ve got a long way until the season starts. I’m on pace to be there for the opening game of the season, so I just try not to push myself too much.”
