Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 1/9 - Dee Milliner, CB, 6-0, 201, Alabama...Milliner was one of the most decorated cornerbacks in the draft, as well as perhaps its most banged-up. He's already had five surgeries, including a recent shoulder operation to repair a torn labrum, but the Jets are confident in his medical records and believe he can perform in the NFL as he did at Alabama, where he led the nation with 21 pass breakups last year. Not drafted to replace Darrelle Revis, but will likely anchor the secondary for years to come. - The Sports Xchange

11/12/15 - CB Dee Milliner was activated from reserve/injured, designated for return by the Jets Wednesday (Nov. 11).
11/12/15 - CB Dee Milliner made his season debut Thursday, when he saw time as a reserve during the Jets' 22-17 loss to the Bills. It was the first game action of any kind for Milliner since Oct. 12, 2014, when he sustained a torn Achilles tendon. Milliner recovered from that injury in time to begin training camp with the Jets but was sidelined Aug. 6 when he tore a tendon in his right wrist, sending him to injured reserve-designated to return on Sept. 6. He is expected to play a reserve role with the Jets for the rest of the season. Due to a variety of injuries, Milliner has played in just 17 out of a possible 41 games since being selected in the first round of the 2013 draft.
11/11/15 - CB Dee Milliner (wrist) will find out Wednesday if he will play this season. Milliner was placed on injured reserve/designated to return on Sept. 5, which meant he was ineligible to play in the first eight weeks of the season. But he must be activated by 4 p.m. Wednesday or else he cannot play at all this year. Head coach Todd Bowles may have provided a hint about Milliner's immediate future Tuesday when he said Milliner is not an option to play safety for the Jets, who are down to their third-string strong safety. Due to a variety of injuries, Milliner has played in just 16 out of a possible 40 NFL games since being selected in the first round of the 2013 draft.
10/22/15 - CB Dee Milliner, currently on reserve/injured, designated for return, had his 21-day practice period being Wednesday (Oct. 21) with the Jets.
09/12/15 - CB Dee Milliner (wrist) was placed on reserve/injured, designated for return by the Jets Monday (Sept. 7).
09/06/15 - CB Dee Milliner (broken right wrist) was placed on injured reserve, designated for return Sunday. Milliner will not be able to return to the Jets until the ninth week of the season, when New York hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars. He may begin practicing after the sixth week. Milliner, who ended last season on injured reserve due to a torn Achilles, suffered a broken right wrist in practice on Aug. 6. He last played in an NFL game on Oct. 12, 2014 and will have missed 23 of 39 games in his three-year NFL career by the time he is eligible to return.
08/10/15 - CB Dee Milliner is scheduled to have surgery on an injured tendon in his right wrist that will sideline him for six to eight weeks. Milliner was hurt during Thursday's practice.
Milliner, who suffered an Achilles injury last October, recently returned to team activities in training camp. A first-round selection of the Jets (No. 9 overall) in the 2013 draft, the Alabama product has started 14 regular-season games, totaling three interceptions and 21 passes defended.
In 2014, the 23-year-old Milliner missed 13 games with a torn Achilles tendon after missing a majority of camp with an ankle injury. As a rookie, he recorded 56 tackles and three interceptions in 13 games (12 starts).
"It has to be frustrating for him," head coach Todd Bowles said. "He started doing some good things. He got back healthy, and to have another setback like that after the injury he already came off of, you've got to be deflated a little bit. But I think he'll be back sooner rather than later with this."
08/10/15 - CB Dee Milliner's rotten fortune continued Thursday, when he suffered a wrist injury that required surgery Friday. He will likely miss 6-8 weeks. The surgery is the seventh for Milliner dating back to his days at Alabama and the second in the last 10 months. He suffered a torn Achilles tendon last Oct. 12.
10/13/14 - CB Dee Milliner (torn right Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Monday, one day after he suffered the non-contact injury in the first quarter of the Jets' 31-17 loss to the Broncos. Milliner is expected to be sidelined for six-to-nine months, which puts his availability for training camp in jeopardy. The surgery to repair the Achilles tendon will be the sixth operation for Milliner since his collegiate career at Alabama. Milliner missed three of the Jets' first five games this season due to a high ankle sprain and a quad injury.
10/12/14 - CB Dee Milliner (right Achilles) is almost certainly done for the season after he sustained a non-contact injury in the first quarter of the Jets' 31-17 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. Milliner was injured on a successful field-goal attempt by Denver just 2:07 into the game. He needed assistance getting off the field and was immediately declared out by the Jets, who said he had an ankle injury. Coach Rex Ryan said after the game it was an Achilles injury. Milliner missed three of the Jets' first five games due to a high ankle sprain and a quad injury. If he requires surgery on the Achilles, it will be his sixth operation since the beginning of his collegiate career.
