Jets hope Wilkerson doesn’t have high ankle sprain

The Jets lost both the game and, possibly, the man who guaranteed they would win it.  (Without, of course, guaranteeing it.)

Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson exited Thursday night’s loss with an apparent ankle injury.  After the game, Jets coach Rex Ryan confirmed the situation, and expressed concern regarding the potential type of sprain Wilkerson may have.

“It is an ankle, I believe,” Ryan told reporters, via quotes distributed by the team. “So we will see how he is. Hopefully it is not a high ankle [sprain] because those are rough. But I am hoping that it’s not, but I am not sure yet.”

Wilkerson was willing to make no guarantees about his health.  Or to pretty much say anything about it.

“For the details you have to ask coach Rex Ryan,” Wilkerson said.

Wilkerson may use the same response the next time he’s asked whether the Jets are going to win a game they’re favored to lose.

    Typical Pats fans for booing him while getting helped off the field. Guess what, your team sucks.

    Wow, you’re really getting on a player who had the confidence to say his team was going to win and then held Brady to 13 points??

    As far as I’m concerned, Wilkerson and the defense did their part.

    Fans were booing because teams fake injuries all the time to slow down an offense, especially with that much time left in the game. See: New York Giants faking injuries.

    Rex was really concerned that he may have damage the appearance of his feet and was actually quite relieved when informed it was his ankle!

    They weren’t booing the injury, they were booing because they thought he was faking to stop the clock. And if the Pats suck, what does that say about the Jets?

    lol the only reason why this game was even close because the Pats had no offense. The next game they’re gonna get torched.

    Jet 3-13

    Yeah, can’t fault the guy for having confidence in his team. I’m not a Jets fan by any means, but they nearly won that game in Foxborough. And that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

    Tom Brady learned what Mark Sanchez learned the last two years. No skill players = no offense.

    It’s interesting – the Jets are coached by a guy who guaranteed a young fragile QB would win the Super Bowl.

    Twice.

    And then you’ve got his players parroting him as well.

    This is why the Jets have yet to surpass the Houston Oilers in AFC East titles…

    … this is why the last time the Jets even made it to a Super Bowl, man had yet to walk on the moon.

    And yet you’ve never heard a Patriots player or coach “guarantee” anything, aside from a commitment to work hard and play hard.

    It was after third down when he was injured, and the clock was moving. His injury didn’t give the Jets any advantage, as the clock was going to run down to 1:08 regardless.

    Are Pats fan classless or just dumb?

    “…….and then held Brady to 13 points??”
    ————
    Hate to break it to jests fans, but the jests D had nothing to do with that. The NE WRs held Brady to 13 points with all their dropped passes. There were at least two receptions that should have been TDs in that game had the WRs decided to show up (the one in the endzone and the one to Dobson where he bobbled it three times and still dropped it).

    Are all Pats* fans bandwagon morons? It was 4th down and you guys were punting, the Jets had no timeouts. The Jets gain literally no advantage…

    Guess you have a short memory. Think of the Thanksgiving game when your OWN fans
    lambasted YOUR team off the field @ halftime.

    “Tebow, save us”…. ROLF! Stay classy NJ.

    hehateme- You’re right, we all hate you. Do you even have a team ? Or a job?

    Have heard them say “I can’t trust you anymore”, and that’s a commitment guaranteed not to end well.

    The game’s stat line answers that one.

    I think “Jets hope Wilkerson doesn’t have high ankle sprain” is the worst headline in the history of everything. Thanks for reporting that they hope he doesn’t have a high ankle sprain. I sort of thought they were hoping he did.

    classless–I hope I get the chance to cheer one day while Brady is down for the count. But, see, I would not do that–my mother raised me better. Patriots–you played poorly and barely beat 2 teams almost who will almost certainly finish among the last 5–the rest of us will be laughing at you come December.

  19. faulkana says: Sep 13, 2013 3:13 PM

    Wow!
    A high ankle sprain and high hopes…all in the same game!

  20. bighurt228 says: Sep 13, 2013 11:06 PM

    Hey Wilkerson………how did that guaranteed WIN pan out?? Another blowhard from the New Jersey area. Lmao……

  21. bighurt228 says: Sep 13, 2013 11:11 PM

    @rajo88

    Dude with comments like that……you shouldn’t come to these blogs. Your gonna compare the SANCHIZE. to Brady?? I won’t comment further cuz I don’t want to give you anymore of my time.

    @lmoron

    The only stat line that matters is the W or L………….!!
