Milliner, the team’s top cornerback, has only played in one game this season after missing most of training camp and the opener with a high ankle sprain.
In his second season with the Jets, Landry is known to his teammates as “The Mentor,” the player the other defensive backs look to when they need some help. And the Jets have needed plenty during the last several weeks.
Dee Milliner, the New York Jets best defensive back, is slated to return to action Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.
The Jets respect Aaron Rodgers, but they’re not about to go cower in a corner. Stopping the Green Bay Packers’ all-world quarterback will be the focal point of Gang Green’s approach Sunday when they travel to Lambeau Field looking to go 2-0.
He wasn’t happy with the 11 penalties — not including two others that were declined — his team was called for. The Jets coach also wasn’t pleased by winning by just five points.
The New York Jets impressed next to no one with their 19-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Gang Green made several mistakes on both sides of the football while racking up 11 penalties. Luckily for the Jets the Raiders were starting a rookie quarterback that was overwhelmed by Rex Ryan’s defense.
One of the biggest stories heading into Sunday’s game is the starting lineup in the New York Jets defensive backfield, as it has been modified due to injuries and roster decisions.
The great experiment of using a converted safety as a starting cornerback looks like it will continue for at least the first week of the regular season.
It took all of three plays for Calvin Pryor to make an impact for the New York Jets.
“He missed a lot of work,” Rex Ryan said, adding that Pryor is physically ready to play. “We’ll get him back and get him up to speed for the next one.”
Despite the talk of competition, it seems this is Geno’s job to lose. Michael Vick was listed as the backup, and third-stringer Matt Simms had the edge over rookie Tajh Boyd.
Calvin Pryor wore a red, no-contact jersey Thursday during positional drills after being cleared for physical activity by team doctors.
New York Jets rookie safety Calvin Pryor sat out practice while he recovers from a concussion, although coach Rex Ryan says the first-round pick is “making strides.”
Safety Calvin Pryor was diagnosed with a concussion Sunday, and tight end Jace Amaro was sidelined in the middle of practice at training camp after tweaking his right knee.
The New York Jets’ safety, the team’s first-round draft pick in May, was being evaluated for a concussion after injuring his head early during special teams drills Saturday.
