Jets P Steve Weatherford will return for the team's game vs. the Chargers Sunday, reports indicate.

The Jets had to turn to PK Jay Feely to take over punting duties in their playoff win over the Bengals after Weatherford missed the game because of a rapid heartbeat.

Weatherford practiced Tuesday and said he passed a stress test, although he will undergo a heart procedure after the season. The 27-year-old said his condition has to do with "the electrical setup of the heart" and he also had heart surgery when he was 16.
