Leonhard progressing Dan Leberfeld

Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger caught up with Jets safety Jim Leonhard to get an update on his broken leg.
“They’re letting me be a lot more aggressive with the rehab,” Leonhard told Vrentas. “Until that bone has completely healed — and we’re pretty close now — they tried to hold me back, didn’t want to do anything to have setbacks. Now, they’re starting to give me more.
“I have plenty of time. I’m not necessarily trying to get back for summer. I think I will be if we have OTAs and things like that, but it’s not a huge rush. I’ll be ready for training camp, and I feel confident I’ll be back much sooner than that.
“Everything is set up for me to have success in my rehab.”
