FLORHAM PARK, NEW JERSEY—His name didn’t appear on the New York Jets‘ injury report, but the team is more than happy to welcome Kacy Rodgers back.

The team’s defensive coordinator, who was forced to miss the Jets’ previous two wins with an undisclosed illness, spoke on Thursday, his first public comments since returning to the team in a coaching capacity. Resuming his fourth season with the team, Rodgers was visibly emotional but in good spirits when he met with reporters.
