The New England Patriots can wrap up the top seed in the AFC this weekend with a win and may have another offensive weapon for Tom Brady on the field as well.

On practice Wednesday Malcolm Mitchell made his return to the field and joined the team for the first time this season.  It marked the return for the WR after being placed on the IR to start the season.  Mitchell can be activated at any time and return to play for the Pats.

Mitchell had been dealing with a knee injury and caught 32 passes for 401 yards and four TDs in his rookie season with the Patriots.  The WR is hopeful to play versus the Jets on Sunday

James Harrison also made his Pats debut at practice and will be wearing #92 with New England.  Tom Brady, Alan Branch, Rex Burkhead, and Mike Gillislee all missed practice with the Pats on Wednesday.
