CORTLAND, N.Y. – New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner has been helped off the practice field with an apparent injury to his lower left leg.
Milliner, expected to be the Jets' top cornerback in his second season, went down after defending wide receiver Quincy Enunwa on a long pass and writhed in pain on the sideline at SUNY Cortland on Sunday. Trainers rushed over to Milliner, the team's No. 1 draft pick last year, and examined him.
Milliner got up after several minutes, but didn't put any weight on his left leg before being carted to the medical tent. Milliner grimaced while trainers placed his leg in a tub of ice. He was then carted to the locker room.
The Jets had no immediate word on the severity of the injury.
