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.

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.
Aug 11 - 1:19 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reported on SportsCenter Monday that Jets CB Dee Milliner's high left ankle sprain will "likely" cost him 3-4 weeks, and his status is questionable for Week 1.

Werder also noted that after speaking to scouting sources around the league, opponents considered the Jets shorthanded in the secondary before losing Milliner and promising rookie Dexter McDougle (ACL tear) in Sunday's practice. Milliner looked sharp in New York's preseason opener, showing explosive "click and close" ability and breaking up a pass intended for Hakeem Nicks. The Jets will probably turn to Darrin Walls as a starter for now.
Aug 11 - 9:31 AM

Jets CB Dee Milliner suffered a high left ankle sprain in Sunday's practice.

It is a multi-week injury, but much better than a fracture, which might have cost Milliner most of 2014 depending on the severity. The Jets open the season on September 7 versus Oakland, so Milliner has 26 days to get right.
Aug 10 - 3:18 PM

The Jets are optimistic CB Dee Milliner's left ankle injury is a sprain rather than a fracture.

He'll have an MRI later today to make sure. "It sounded like he rolled it, which would lead you to believe it's more of an ankle sprain than it would be a fracture," said coach Rex Ryan. With Milliner (ankle), Dexter McDougle (knee), and Dimitri Patterson (calf/ankle) all on the shelf, the Jets are down to Kyle Wilson, Darrin Walls, Ras-I Dowling, and camp bodies at cornerback.
Aug 10 - 2:30 PM

Jets CBs Dee Milliner (ankle) and Dexter McDougle (knee) will both go for MRIs later today.

Miller suffered a potentially severe left ankle injury in practice, while McDougle felt a "sharp pain" after landing on his knee wrong during 1-on-1 drills. The Jets are thin at cornerback, so team brass will be holding its breath.
