@RapSheet: #Jets believe CB Dee Milliner suffered a high-ankle sprain, per source. Out a few weeks. He thought it was broken, but tests show a sprain

This is relatively good news. Hopefully he'll be ready by Week 1 or 2.

Uh.. Isn't a high ankle sprain one of the worst outcomes? Like an 8 week injury? Roddy White was ineffective all season because of a high ankle sprain.

Well, this is awful news. This was a position of concern and it's pretty much killed us before the season even started.

It's better than a broken ankle. Generally, it's a 4-6 week injury. Less serious than the injury that Coples had last year.

Not good because it will linger for a while. He might be able to play but it's easy to re-tweak or not be as effective. Better than Achilles.

Walls is going to have to be big for us or someone else step up out of nowhere.

With Milliners past I can see this aggravating him all season and never really being 100% from his past and trying to rush back with our poor CB talent.

Well, that's optimistic of you.

@RapSheet: Considering how Dee Milliner worked in the offseason & his well-stated goals, high-ankle sprain isn't worst-case scenario. Not great either

He'll be out around 4 weeks, which sucks bc he looked like he was really coming into his own.

Add this to McDougle tearing his ACL and I'm pretty damn depressed for the day....

After the first New England game last year, Mo Wilkerson suffered what was feared to be a high ankle sprain. It turned out to just be a regular ankle sprain and he didn't miss a game.

Let's hope Milliner is that lucky.

High ankle sprain is one of the most lingering injuries in sports. So it's pretty optimistic to think he'll be ready by week 1. Obviously I hope he heels fast and stats healthy and becomes a #1CB. But fact is, is he's had a past of injuries and lingering injuries at that, so to think this will be different is kidding ourselves.

Ryan Mathews suffered a high ankle sprain last year and did not miss a game. He played two (playoff) games with the injury. Peyton Manning, C.J. Spiller, Ben Roethlisberger and Roddy White also played through high ankle sprains last year.

On the other hand, Jay Cutler missed around a month last year with a high ankle sprain. Nick Mangold missed two games in 2011 with a high ankle sprain. Aaron Hernandez played only two games in between September 16th and November 22nd after suffering setbacks in his recovery from a high ankle sprain.

this is pretty depressing. since Wilson, Patrick, Reeves and Lankster are more fitted to nickel and dime packages we are left with Patterson, Walls, Dowling and Dixon as our choices for opening day starters.

Dixon is from a small school and unless he's a quick learner, i don't see him as a factor this year.

Patterson looked bad last week but maybe it was just rust.

Walls was solid as a replacement so i hope he can hold the fort at least until Milliner recovers

Dowling is a mystery. Anyone hear anything on how he's doing

We could probably claim someone off waivers but i don't think we'd get anything more than another backup.

I'm afraid we'll get ripped off if we try to trade for someone.

It's really bad for CB's though. Bad ankles kill your ability to jump routes on time, plant when the WR makes a cut, jump ball situations, and etc. I never believe in the early dates for recovery times when it comes to injuries and positions like this.

I think our goal should be exactly five weeks from now, when we take on Jordy Nelson and the Packers.

If Dmitri Patterson and Darrin Walls are our starters week 1, even Schaub may have a field day with no receivers to throw to.
