New GM Mike Maccagnan stated at the Combine on Wednesday that the Jets plan to be active in free agency. Cornerback should be among their top targets. Feb 18 - 9:25 PM

Jets placed LCB Dee Milliner on injured reserve with a torn right Achilles' tendon, ending his season.

It's not the news the Jets' struggling secondary needed to hear, but Milliner had barely contributed this season thanks to various injuries. The No. 9 overall pick of the 2013 draft will now head into his third NFL season having appeared in just 16 of a possible 32 games. He's trending the way of fellow-ballyhooed "safe" SEC prospect Morris Claiborne. Milliner should be ready for the start of next season's camp, but it's not a guarantee.

The belief is that Jets CB Dee Milliner suffered a torn right Achilles' tendon in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Broncos.

This is what it looked like when Milliner went down in a non-contact situation while trying to block a field goal. The disappointing No. 9 overall pick in the 2013 draft will undergo further testing Monday to confirm that diagnosis. A torn Achilles' would end Milliner's season.

Jets CB Dee Milliner was forced from New York's Week 6 game against the Broncos with a non-contact right leg injury.

Attempting to block a field goal, Milliner went down with a non-contact injury. It had the looks of a serious issue. CBS' Dan Fouts speculated that it could be Milliner's Achilles', but the Jets say it's his ankle. Whatever it is, Milliner could put no weight on his right foot as he was helped off the field, and is done for the day. It's awful news for a team that already had no prayer of stopping Peyton Manning.

Jets CB Dee Milliner (quad) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Coach Rex Ryan said Milliner would play "for sure," but the team has not decided if he will start or come off the bench. Injuries have limited Milliner to only 41 snaps this season.

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.
Tue, Sep 23, 2014 05:26:00 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.

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.

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.

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.
Sat, Sep 13, 2014 11:30:00 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.
Thu, Sep 11, 2014 05:04:00 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.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 02:36:00 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.

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.
