Nugent might play this week

Jets placekicker Mike Nugent, who pulled his hamstring in Week One, is very close to returning.

Nugent has been kicking the last couple of weeks in practice.

Eric Mangini was asked on Thursday if Nugent might kick this Sunday against St. Louis.

"There is a possibility," said Mangini.

At the beginning of Thursday's practice, Nugent was swinging his injured leg full throttle on the sidelines.

Jay Feely has filled in for Nugent the last seven games.
