Ryan Jones (eye) has been given the green light to participate in contact drills.
Jones hasn't played yet this season. "Obviously, I would have liked to have played four weeks ago, but that wasn't in my best (interest)," he said. "I do feel really good out there. Surprisingly good. I had a good base before the injury, but for three weeks I couldn't do anything. That was horrible for me. I'm slowly getting back, but I'm not going to lie ' you can definitely feel it in your lungs when you get out and start battling against guys." He might return to the Oilers' lineup within the next week.
