Leonhard Returns to Practice, Sanchez Wins Award

S Jim Leonhard returned to practice this morning after missing yesterday's session with a knee injury. CB Lito Sheppard (quad) and CB Donald Strickland (ankle), however, did not suit up at all. It's becoming more and more obvious that neither is going to play this Sunday against the Saints. CB Corey Ivy, a former Raven, was brought in for a tryout last week and will most likely be signed before Sunday's game. LB Larry Izzo and OL Wayne Hunter, both of whom missed yesterday's session as well, returned to practice this morning.

Meanwhile, QB Mark Sanchez has been named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month. He became the first player in the Jets history to receive the honor, which has been handed out since 1996. LB David Harris was named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month in 2007.
