Dee Milliner leaves practice with hamstring injury


The rocky start to Jets cornerback Dee Milliner’s NFL career continued on Wednesday when he injured his hamstring at practice.

Rich Cimini of reports that Milliner had to leave the session early, earning a limited designation on the team’s injury report for the day. It’s more fodder for the notion that Milliner’s rookie year is being governed by Murphy’s Law.

He missed all of the team’s spring work recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum and then missed the start of training camp while working out his contract. The ninth overall pick from April’s draft missed two of the team’s preseason games with an Achilles injury and then got benched in the Week Two loss to the Patriots. He played 22 snaps against the Bills in Week Three, working in sub packages after starting each of the first two games.

Kyle Wilson started in place of Milliner against Buffalo, but wound up on the bench for a spell after picking up penalties on four consecutive plays. Coach Rex Ryan wouldn’t say whether Wilson would start again this week.

“I don’t know about that. We’ll see,” Ryan said. “Will he start in some defenses? Absolutely.”

Darrin Walls replaced Wilson against Buffalo and is likely in line for more snaps with Milliner hurting once again.

    lets not forget who really replaced Revis. DT Sheldon Richardson, who’s been dominate. Milliner will be very good…and 15 mil cheaper than mevis

    Still young but I get the feeling once the jets play a team that doesn’t drop the ball, he and every other corner not named cromartie on the jets defense will get lit up.
