Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) is practicing Thursday.

Wilkerson sat out Wednesday's session, but the Jets are just managing his reps. As long as he can wake up on time for meetings, Wilkerson should play this week.
Nov 10 - 11:34 AM

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson missed the team's Week 7 walkthrough, as well as a defensive meeting where his teammates "had a cake to celebrate his birthday."

It's why Wilkerson was suspended for the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. Wilkerson had similar issues in 2015, earning a similar ban. Coach Todd Bowles is running out of patience with the Jets' season in the gutter. Wilkerson's five-year, $86 million contract is fast looking like a giant mistake.

Jets RE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) is active for Week 9 against the Dolphins.

He was questionable. LT Ryan Clady (shoulder) is also active. Inactive for the Jets are QB Christian Hackenberg, TE Kellen Davis, ILB Darron Lee, ILB Bruce Carter, C Nick Mangold, OG Brent Qvale, and TE Eric Tomlinson.

Nov 4 - 7:56 PM

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

It is his second missed session in a row. It is a downgrade after Wilkerson was able to get in a couple limited practices before playing last week. He will need to get in some work Friday to have a shot at playing. Coach Todd Bowles has hinted he's a game-time decision.
Nov 3 - 11:16 AM

Jets declared DE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) active for Week 8 against the Browns.

Wilkerson could be limited, but his presence is a big boost for a defense without CB Buster Skrine (knee) and LB Darron Lee (ankle). New York also declared C Nick Mangold (ankle), TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle), LB Bruce Carter (quad), OL Brent Qvale (neck), and QB Christian Hackenberg inactive for Week 8.
Oct 30 - 11:41 AM

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (questionable, ankle) is a game-time decision for Week 8 against Cleveland.

Oct 29 - 9:06 PM

Jets declared DE Muhammad Wilkerson, WR Jeremy Butler, QB Christian Hackenberg, LB Darron Lee, QB Bryce Petty, RT Brent Qvale and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins inactive for Week 7 against the Ravens.

An ankle injury kept Wilkerson out of two of the Jets' three practices this week. Rather than having him play on a snap count, Wilkerson will sit this one out in hopes of returning next week against Cleveland. Ryan Clady (shoulder) and Nick Mangold (knee) are both active for the Jets.
Oct 23 - 11:50 AM

Coach Todd Bowles said DE Muhammad Wilkerson (questionable, ankle) will be a game-time decision.

Wilkerson was held out of Friday's practice, but it sounds like the Jets were managing his reps. His Week 7 status will come down to how he feels in pre-game warmups. Wilkerson could play fewer snaps if active.
Oct 22 - 5:20 PM

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson (questionable, ankle) is in danger of missing Week 7.

Wilkerson has performed far below expectation on the Jets' underachieving defensive line this year, but his loss would still be significant against the Ravens, upgrading Terrance West's matchup slightly. Wilkerson did not practice on Friday, and afterward coach Todd Bowles indicated the injury is getting worse.
Oct 21 - 2:11 PM

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano expects DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) to play in Friday's preseason game.

Coach Todd Bowles was noncommittal on Wilkerson's status, but he's reportedly looked fine in practices. The Jets will likely limit his reps if he plays this week. Wilkerson should be close to fully healthy.

Jets activated DE Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) from the active/PUP list.

The Jets will still baby Wilkerson along through the preseason, but he remains fully on track for Week 1. Wilkerson has missed only three games across five NFL seasons.
Aug 9 - 1:32 PM

Muhammad Wilkerson (leg, PUP) remains on track for Week 1.

"I'm feeling pretty good," Wilkerson said. "The leg is getting better each and every day. I'll be ready for Week 1." The Jets have zero reason to rush Wilkerson. The fact that they surprisingly extended him last month speaks to a low level of concern about his health.
