New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson and tight end Jace Amaro could both miss the team's game against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night with injuries.

Both players were injured in the Jets' 38-3 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Monday night.

Wilkerson has a toe injury that coach Rex Ryan says is similar to turf toe and had him in a walking boot Wednesday. Ryan says it "doesn't look good" for Wilkerson's chances to play. Linebacker Quinton Coples could see increased snaps on the defensive line if Wilkerson can't go.

Amaro, who leads NFL rookie tight ends with 34 catches and 291 yards receiving, is still going through the NFL's concussion protocol.

Defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson didn't practice because of a sore back.
