FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner (ankle) did his customary longer warm-up routine in the rehab area before putting on his helmet and joining the rest of his teammates during the 30-minute portion of Friday’s practice open to the media.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said Thursday that he was “pretty confident” Milliner would make his regular-season debut in Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. But Ryan added Milliner probably would not start, meaning that for a second consecutive week, converted safety Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls will be the Jets’ starters at cornerback.
Linebacker/special-teamer A.J. Edds (hamstring) was the only Jet who stayed in the rehab area for the entire media portion. He did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.
Tight end Jeff Cumberland (Achilles) and offensive lineman Willie Colon (calf) warmed up for a longer period in the rehab area, as they have been doing, before heading out to the practice field. Defensive back Josh Bush (quad) and linebacker IK Enemkpali (foot) were practicing.
