Turns out, Dee Milliner hasn’t been hampered by a calf injury, as Rex Ryan said.
According to Wednesday’s injury report, the rookie cornerback is dealing with an Achilles injury. The good news is, he was full participation in practice and is expected to play in Sunday’s regular-season opener.
Also worth noting: ex-Jet and fellow cornerback, Darrelle Revis, participated fully for the Bucs. So what does that mean? Expect Revis Island will be full go at Met Life Stadium, barring an unforeseen setback.
