New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner suffered an ankle injury in practice, but he received fortunate news that it was just a sprain and would only keep him out a few weeks.
New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner received fortunate news after injuring his ankle in practice. He was noticeably in pain as he clutched his ankle, and he struggled to walk off the field.
However, it was announced that Milliner will only be out a few weeks. He has proclaimed himself to be the best cornerback in the NFL, so he will get his chance to back up his bold statement when he returns in the regular season.
Here is a tweet from Ian Rapoport confirming Milliner’s status on his ankle injury.
#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
