Corner Expected To Assume Cromartie Role Out With Left Hamstring Tightness

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner sat out practice Wednesday with tightness in his left hamstring and isn’t sure when he’ll return to the field.

The practice, the team’s fifth organized team activity session, was the first Milliner missed. He said he feels “fine” and added that sitting out was a “precautionary” move.

Milliner had a rough early start to his rookie year while dealing with hamstring issues. He is expected to take over this season for Antonio Cromartie as the team’s No. 1 cornerback.

Wide receiver Eric Decker also was among those who didn’t participate. He is in Nashville with his wife and recording artist Jessie James for the Country Music Awards, where they’ll be presenters.
