FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Rex Ryan couldn't help but deliver a playful dig at his coaching nemesis.

"Obviously, on to San Diego," the Jets coach said Wednesday, a few hours after Patriots coach Bill Belichick repeatedly used the "We're on to Cincinnati" line to avoid discussing the play of Tom Brady after their 41-14 loss to the Chiefs Monday night.

Ryan's one-liner garnered some laughs from the overflow media crowd, but the coach quickly turned his focus back to the Chargers (3-1).

At 1-3, the Jets are in desperate need of a win. And there's a definite sense of urgency inside the facility.

"With that said," Ryan added with a smile, "obviously we watched Kansas City handle New England."

Milliner set to return

Barring a setback, Dee Milliner will be back on the field Sunday after missing three games because of ankle and quadriceps injuries. The cornerback was limited in practice, but Ryan reiterated he was confident Milliner would suit up.

Enunwa case postponed

Rookie wide receiver Quincy Enunwa missed a portion of practice due to a court appearance related to his Aug. 31 arrest on a domestic violence-related charge. Enunwa repeatedly said "it's a pending legal matter" when asked about his court appearance, but according to, his court hearing was postponed until Oct. 15. Enunwa, who currently is on the practice squad, was arrested after causing "bodily injury" to a woman at a New Jersey hotel.

Asked about the NFL's new domestic- violence policy, which includes a six-game suspension for first-time offenders, he said: "I don't have an opinion. When you put yourselves in a situation, you have to face the consequences of whatever is coming. With a pending legal matter, I have to let everything fall through."

Jet streams

David Nelson (ankle) was not at practice and is not expected to play . . . Willie Colon (knee), Eric Decker (hamstring), Nick Mangold (shoulder) and Calvin Pryor (thigh contusion) also were limited . . . Antonio Allen, who created a stir when he left the stadium Sunday on a golf cart, isn't on the injury report. Allen said his feet felt like they were on fire Sunday and were swollen after the game. But he insisted he was fine Wednesday.
