The New York Jets were without starting running back Chris Ivory last week, and it showed. They rushed for 47 yards — 13 of which came from Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Fortunately, it appears as though they'll get Ivory back this week for their London showdown against the Miami Dolphins. Ivory was a full participant in practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Sunday, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Ivory has averaged 4.4 yards per carry in two games and has scored two touchdowns this season. He's the workhorse back the Jets need if they hope to be a “ground and pound” team. They showed an inability to do so without Ivory, so his availability will be welcomed by the offense.
