The Jets waived/injured Milliner (undisclosed) on Saturday, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.
After Milliner's fifth-year option was declined in the offseason, his inability to contribute this preseason may have made the decision an easy one for the Jets. If he clears waivers, the 2013 first-round pick could revert to injury reserve, but the two parties may instead seek an injury settlement.
Petty (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Petty's shoulder injury continued to keep him sidelined through practice this week and will leave him inactive for a third straight game to begin his career. As a result, Geno Smith will serve as the Jets' backup to starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick this Sunday.
McDougle was waived by the Jets on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
McDougle was originally drafted in the third round of the 2014 draft, but his rookie season was quickly derailed by a torn ACL. The Jets had hoped that McDougle would rebound in 2015, but the 25-year-old never seemed to return to his old self after the injury.
Williams (concussion) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.
Even if he were healthy, Williams would face long odds to make the final roster. Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson are all locks, and Antone Smith was recently signed to compete for the No. 4 job.
Golson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's contest with the Eagles.
Golson has not yet fully recovered from the Lisfranc surgery that he underwent in early August, but the 23-year-old is making tremendous progress. According to various reports, Golson is ahead of schedule and could be nearing a return to action in the coming weeks.
Nix (back) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest.
Nix is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's date with Philadelphia which means that he could be in line to miss a third consecutive game. On the bright side, it does appear that he will be able to play within the coming weeks regardless of his status for Sunday.
Bryant was never under consideration of being cut by the Steelers despite his recently imposed year-long suspension, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Bryant's multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy triggered a minimum one-year suspension from the league, but the Steelers never considered releasing him, according to general manager Kevin Colbert. Instead, Pittsburgh will hope Bryant makes the necessary changes to his life to get reinstated next year, when he would have two years remaining on his contract with the team. With Bryant suspended, Steelers receivers Markus Wheaton and, more specifically, Sammie Coates, will be looked upon to take advantage of their increased opportunities this season.
