Donald Butler has missed the last few games because of injury and it looks like he is set to return this week against the New York Jets. Butler has practiced the last couple of days. He was having a fine season before the injury and will look to finish it off on a high note.

Butler may not have his partner in the middle on Sunday though. Takeo Spikes (hamstring) missed practice again. Demorrio Williams (hamstring) joined practice but was limited. If he is able to go, he will see some time in Spikes position. Jonas Mouton figures to get some playing time in the middle also.

Aubrayo Franklin (knee) missed his second straight practice also.
