Gilchrist (knee) may eventually be released, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Currently rehabbing from a torn patellar tendon suffered in December, the 28-year-old safety won't be able to pass a physical anytime soon. Once he's able to do so, Gilchrist could be part of the Jets' veteran purge that has already sent WR Brandon Marshall, C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis out of town.
