Milliner helped off practice field

The Jets have had a costly practice on Sunday. 

The Jets lost Dee Milliner (leg), Dexter McDougle (leg) during Sunday’s practice with Dimitri Patterson also sitting out.

McDougle went down and had his knee checked, but walked off under his own power. Milliner’s injury is potentially the most worrisome.

Milliner could not put any weight on his left leg after leaving the practice field.  His left leg was in an ice bucket and he was in obvious pain.

Whether people think Milliner is proven or not, he’s the top dog in the secondary this year and we expect that he was going to have an impressive season.

Based on the observations of Milliner during practice, is extremely concerning when considering how much hangs on the readiness of this secondary. We really like depth the Jets have at cornerback, but it is still fair to say it hinges on Milliner.

On the plus side. It looks like Enunwa has begun kicking ass and taking names.

Just got back from a great day at the beach with my family. My son got a tweet about Dexter and Dee.  Horrible news about Dexter and concerned about Dee.

I just want to go to sleep, and pretend today never happened.

Why didn't he know his draft pick would tear his ACL in camp? Imbecile.

Torn ACL for McDougle and a bad ankle for Dee.


But we didn't need Cromartie.

"Milliner is a nice player, but probably more of a #2 cornerback,"

That's nuts.

if someone tore their acl would they be able to walk on it on his own?

we didn't need him.  He was beat up and was lousy in coverage.  How was he needed?

Losing Cromartie instantly made the team better. He was that bad

@BDarc23 unfortunately he has a bad history of injuries too...like to see what he can do on the field tho

@jaym Thats a shame. The kid has skills.

Crap! Hopefully Dee was just embarrassed giving up a long completion to Enunwa and "rolled his ankle"

@a57se I like his attitude. The reporters make it sound like he's making tough catches in traffic.

@rstysanchz Logan Mankins played half a season without realizing he had one!

@rstysanchz Yes. As mentioned downthread, Kris Jenkins did it twice, and Revis did it, too. Even after the game, the reporters said Revis was walking around with a limp.

You want to trade for him? What are you saying?

@a57se  Are you serious? Look at the list of superstars who have had the same injury.

@Bent really that aint bellicheat fudging the injury reports

uggh...hopefully we will get good news on both of them tommorrow...to come out of a preseason game with no injuries and then get 2 major non contact injuries in practice would be devastating

@a57se @JCuratola3 Dude your the most uninformed person who posts on this blog including hank. You makeup these little situations in that head of yours that dont occur on everyone elses earth. 


Nobody red flagged McDougle NOR Milliner. Milliner was said to be a top 15 pick coming out your clueless. And McDougle had 1 injury that took his senior year away. Obviously his draft stock is going to fall. 


If you dont like a move the team makes fine. If you arent going to support the team. Like your friend bradysucks and hank, then do us fans a favor and stop posting your garbage.

@a57se @UncleJoesJetFarm @BDarc23 Everything is easy in the rear view mirror 57.  Regardless of what happened today, I'm on board with what Idzik is doing.  We have better depth now that we've had in a long time.  He is taking a team that was in shambles and has started tuning the ship around his first season and is on his way in season 2.  Did I want to see Cooks get picked?  Yeah, but we needed more help in other areas and aren't privy to what is going on in the FO.


We aren't contending for a Super Bowl this year.  They are just building off what he inherited.  With where we were, its going to take more than 2 seasons.

@a57se  He broke his shoulder blade making a tackle. I dont see the relevance to red flag that.

@JCuratola3 @a57se I agree. 57, Hank, bradysucks are all garbage and bring nothing to the table. I just wish they would see that already and stop posting here

@a57se  Is there a list of teams that red flagged them?

57, exactly which teams had him red flagged? Exactly, you have no idea if anyone had him "red flagged".

@a57se @jaym sanchez and clemens both had injury historys and tanny drafted them pretty high in the draft

@levi @a57se teams dont release their draft boards or scouting info for obvious reasons. his research is reading a bunch of sports writers opinions.

Pete 57

But again, the truth is WE don't know if anyone had him red flagged. It's all idle speculation.

@a57se well you labeled McDougle as having an "injury history" when he only had 1 injury prior to this one. Would you like to contradict yourself some more?

rstysanchz
rstysanchz

@a57se the reason i used sanchez and clemens because the y missed pretty much a whole season due to their injuries....with the exception of dee and dex who else has idzick drafted with an injury history seems like idzick claims alot of injury prone guys off waivers more
