The New York Jets will be without running back Chris Ivory and cornerback Dee Milliner when the team takes on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Both players are being held out due to hamstring injuries. The good news is that Sheldon Richardson, who missed practice this week, is listed a probable for Sunday's game. The Jets will have Kyle Wilson and Darrin Walls ready to pick up the slack for Dee Milliner, while Bilal Powell and Alex Green will have to do the heavy lifting at running back.
The New York Jets will be missing two important offseason additions this weekend against the Tennessee Titans, as Chris ivory and Dee Milliner will miss the game with hamstring injuries. The Jets drafted Dee Milliner with the No. 9 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft, but he has hit some tough luck so far to start his career. The Jets pulled Dee Milliner against the New England Patriots when Tom Brady started going after him. Now he's dealing with a hamstring injury suffered in practice, and he missed time during the offseason due to a shoulder injury.
Kyle Wilson will be expected to start at cornerback opposite Antonio Cromartie, with Darrin Walls sniffing around for some significant playing time. Walls has performed well so far in limited action. Alex Green should expect a larger role on Sunday in the absence of Chris Ivory.
Sheldon Richardson has been dealing with his own shoulder injury. He sat out of practice this week, but is listed as probable for Sunday. The injury will likely be something Richardson has to battle through for the rest of the season. Luckily for the Jets, Sheldon Richardson has been able to manage the situation and continue to be a big part of the defensive line rotation.
The Jets are also expecting some players to continue to return to form. Santonio Holmes feels that he still has a long way to go, and Quinton Coples will be playing his second game of the season on Sunday.
