FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Cornerback Dee Milliner and running back Stevan Ridley practiced fully on Wednesday for the first time this season.

Asked if he was encouraged by their progress, Jets coach Todd Bowles simply said: "They ran around."

Milliner is on injured reserve with the designation to return after undergoing wrist surgery in training camp. He can't play for another two weeks. But Bowles said there's a "chance" Ridley could be active for Sunday's game at New England, but "we'll see what kind of shape he's in. We'll see what we need, if we need him."

Ridley, who tore his ACL and MCL last season with the Patriots, started the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Ten more years?

Tom Brady isn't thinking about the end of his career. In fact, the Patriots quarterback would like to play for another decade. "I want to play for a long time, maybe 10 more," the 38-year-old said on a conference call. "It's not always up to me. That's what my goals are. That's just what I'm hoping. It will take a lot to achieve that. Obviously, a team has to want you, but I love playing this sport. I love making the commitment to my teammates and my coaches. Hopefully I can do it for a long time."

Buster Skrine (concussion), Jaiquawn Jarrett (knee) and Bilal Powell (ankle sprain) did not practice. Ryan Fitzpatrick (right elbow) was a new addition to the injury report, but he practiced fully. Willie Colon (knee), Chris Owusu (knee) and Marcus Williams (hamstring) were limited. As of now, it's too early to know if Skrine or Williams will play, Bowles said.
