Jets coach Rex Ryan expressed confidence Monday that CB Dee Milliner (quad, ankle) will play in Week 5 against the Chargers.
Milliner has played just 40 defensive snaps since suffering a high ankle sprain late in the preseason, all in Week 2. He will presumably return as a starter at left corner, with RCB Antonio Allen remaining in the starting lineup and Kyle Wilson covering the slot. Darrin Walls would go back to the bench.

The Jets are unsure if CB Dee Milliner (quad) will be available for Week 5.

Milliner has appeared in just one of the Jets' first three games as he battles ankle and quad issues. The Jets have been rolling with Darrin Walls and S Antonio Allen in his absence. Milliner should be considered week to week.
Sep 23 - 5:26 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (quad, ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Bears.

Milliner missed practice again on Saturday and could be looking at a multi-week setback. He's not going to play against the Bears. With the Jets playing on Monday night, Milliner isn't a lock to return in Week 4.
Sep 20 - 3:39 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner missed practice on Friday with a quad injury.

Milliner just got over a high-ankle sprain and returned to the lineup last week. His status for Week 3 against the Bears on Monday night is now in question. The Jets have surrendered the most fantasy points to opposing receivers. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery should both eat, even if Milliner plays.
Sep 19 - 1:59 PM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 2 game at Green Bay.

Milliner's return provides a talent injection to the Jets' rancid secondary, although it's unclear how much he'll play. There are no surprises in the inactives: DT TJ Barnes, DB Josh Bush, LB Ikemefuna Enemkpali, LB AJ Edds, T Ben Ijalana, R Walter Powell and G Dakota Dozier.
Sep 14 - 3:09 PM

Coach Rex Ryan expects CB Dee Milliner to play against the Packers Week 2, but hinted the 2013 first-round pick could be limited.

"I think he’ll play, but we’ll see how much," Ryan said. Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will start for the Jets, with Milliner coming off the bench. Milliner has been out since August 10 with a high-ankle sprain.
Sep 13 - 11:30 AM

The Jets are "pretty confident" CB Dee Milliner (ankle) will be ready for Sunday's game against the Packers.

That confidence was illustrated by Thursday's release of CB Leon McFadden. We doubt Milliner will be ready for an every-down role, but it's good news for a team currently going with Darrin Walls and converted S Antonio Allen against Aaron Rodgers.
Sep 11 - 5:04 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan is "cautiously optimistic" of CB Dee Milliner (ankle) playing this week.

Milliner practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. He's unlikely to play a full-time role if active, but his presence would be a slight downgrade to Jordy Nelson's matchup. Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls are still expected to see the majority of snaps.
Sep 10 - 2:36 PM

The Jets are "hopeful" CB Dee Milliner (ankle) will return for Week 2 against the Packers.

Rex Ryan needs all hands on deck versus Aaron Rodgers. Milliner suffered his high ankle sprain on August 10, so he's just under a month removed from the injury. His initial timetable was reported at 3-4 weeks, although high ankle sprains often cost players as many as six weeks. Milliner may try to practice on Thursday and/or Friday. He could be a game-time decision.
Sep 8 - 5:00 PM

Jets declared CB Dee Milliner, CB Leon McFadden, S Josh Bush, G Dakota Dozier, DE IK Enemkpali, G/T Ben Ijalana, and WR Walter Powell inactive for Week 1 against the Raiders.

Milliner is sidelined with a high-ankle sprain. Antonio Allen, Darrin Walls, and Kyle Wilson will fill in at corner. Special teamer Bush has a quad injury.
Sep 7 - 11:50 AM

Jets CB Dee Milliner (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 1.

Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will be New York's outside corners against Raiders rookie quarterback Derek Carr, with Kyle Wilson manning the slot. Milliner remains "week to week." The Jets will face Green Bay in Week 2.
Sep 5 - 1:42 PM

According to the Daily News, the feeling right now is that Jets CB Dee Milliner (ankle) will not be ready for Week 1.

Milliner sustained a high ankle sprain on Aug. 10. If he can't go against the Raiders one week from today, the Jets will be forced to use former UDFA Darrin Walls and converted safety Antonio Allen as their top-two corners, with Kyle Wilson in the slot. Rex Ryan should be praying that the Raiders trot Matt Schaub out there instead of Derek Carr, because his secondary is bad with Milliner and a horror show without him.
Aug 31 - 10:15 AM

The Jets remain "noncommittal" on CB Dee Milliner's (high-ankle sprain) status for Week 1.

Milliner has yet to resume running full speed, and will sit out Thursday's preseason finale. It's a major concern with fellow starter Dimitri Patterson suspended indefinitely after blowing off last week's regular-season dress rehearsal. The Jets have a severe lack of depth behind their projected starting corners. Their front seven will be effective, but the back line can be exploited.
Aug 25 - 3:08 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan admitted Monday that CB Dee Milliner is dealing with a high-ankle sprain.

The admission comes one week after Ryan conceded that Milliner's Week 1 availability is "in doubt." The Jets are mixing and matching as they attempt to replace Milliner in their patchwork secondary.
Aug 18 - 2:26 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan conceded Monday that CB Dee Milliner's (high ankle sprain) Week 1 availability is "in doubt."

The Jets are so thin that they've moved safety Antonio Allen to cornerback, at least for the time being. Milliner had been scheduled for a Sunday MRI, but his ankle is too swollen to be tested. ESPN's Ed Werder reported this morning Milliner's timetable was 3-4 weeks. That's already sounding pretty optimistic.
