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

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.
09/29/14 - CB Dee Milliner may return to the Jets for Sunday's game this week. Milliner has missed three of the Jets' four games this season due to a high ankle sprain and a quad injury. Head coach Rex Ryan said Monday he was confident Milliner would be available against the San Diego Chargers.
09/28/14 - CB Dee Milliner missed his second game of the season and this time it was a quadriceps injury. He also sat out the season opener against Oakland with an ankle injury.
09/22/14 - CB Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain) was inactive Monday for the Jets' 27-19 loss to the Bears. Milliner, who was hurt in August, made his season debut against Green Bay on Sept. 14 but was clearly hobbled, especially when he was badly beaten by Packers WR Jordy Nelson on an 80-yard touchdown. Milliner's availability for Sunday's game against Detroit is unknown.
09/18/14 - CB Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain) didn't practice Wednesday, three days after he struggled in his season debut, a 31-24 loss to the Packers. Head coach Rex Ryan said he was hopeful Milliner would be able to play Monday night against the Bears, when even a hobbled Milliner will be needed as the Jets try to contain Chicago WRs Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
09/11/14 - CB Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. It was the first practice activity for Milliner since he was injured on Aug. 10. Both Milliner and head coach Rex Ryan are hopeful Milliner can play Sunday against the Packers.
09/03/14 - CB Dee Milliner (high ankle sprain) didn't participate in practice Wednesday. While both Milliner and head coach Rex Ryan expressed hope Milliner could play in Sunday's regular-season opener against Oakland, Ryan acknowledged it was a bad sign that Milliner was inactive on Wednesday and said he'd have to practice soon to have a chance to play. Milliner was injured during practice Aug. 10.
