New York Jets safety Jamal Adams returned to practice on Wednesday and expects to play for the first time in three weeks on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Adams, who was officially limited in practice as he returns from a high ankle sprain, told reporters the chances of him playing are “very high.”

Adams was hurt in Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals and sat out the last two games. The third-year safety, who was named to his second straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday, has 64 tackles, 6.5 sacks, six passes defensed, an interception and two forced fumbles this season.

Also appearing to be on track for a return is defensive lineman Quinnen Williams, who missed last week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens with a neck injury. Williams returned to a limited session on Wednesday.

Drafted third overall in April, Williams has 24 tackles (three for loss), 1.5 sacks and five quarterback hits in 11 games (seven starts). He turns 22 on Saturday.
