FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Breece Hall is less than 11 months removed from an ACL tear. He has confidence that his knee is strong and can’t wait to prove it on Monday night.

Hall also is excited to play with new backfield mate Dalvin Cook. Hall believes they’re going to do damage this season.

“We’re probably going to be the best duo,” he said Saturday.

Hall practiced on Saturday and was given the green light to play against the Bills. How much he will play is unclear, and Robert Saleh said the Jets will be “smart” with Hall.

“We have a plan,” Saleh said. “I’m not going to talk about it here. There’s going to be constant communication because what the plan is could be more, could be less.”

The Jets won’t push Hall too much. They want him to continue to get stronger throughout the season. Getting Cook should help that.

Cook could be used more early on, but Hall has said he’s ahead of schedule. There could be times when the Jets roll with Cook or Hall — whoever has the hot hand — or play them in the backfield together.

Hall said he’s not concerned about his touches.

“As long as we’re winning, then we’re both going to be fine,” he said. “We’re both some of the top playmakers on this roster. I think there’s going to be enough footballs for both of us.”

Hall was off to a great start to his rookie season before he got hurt in the first half of the Jets’ Week 7 win at Denver. He averaged 112 yards on 15.8 touches in his last five games.

He has displayed some of that explosiveness and burst during practice and looks forward to doing so in games.

“I’m the type if you leave anything open,’’ he said, “then I’m going to kill you.”
