Buccaneers defensive end George Johnson appeared in a career-high 16 games in 2014 for the Lions, but he made no starts. He mostly was a rotational pass rusher last year, but the job seemed to suit him well, as he totaled a career-best six sacks.
Seferian-Jenkins' eighth consecutive absence is no surprise, as he has yet to be cleared medically. While Luke Stocker, Brandon Myers, and Cameron Brate tend to tight end in the meantime, Seferian-Jenkins' next opportunity to suit up arrives next Sunday at Indianapolis
The Jets have activated Milliner (wrist) from short-term IR.
Milliner's return arrives at a good time for the Jets, with Antonio Cromartie dealing with a deep quad bruise. If Cromartie can't play Thursday against the Bills, Milliner will bolster the team's cornerback depth behind Darrelle Revis, Buster Skrine and Marcus Williams.
Richardson (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Texans.
Richardson didn't practice this week, so this isn't unexpected. He'll be missed by the Jets defense, as he's recorded at least half a sack in three of his last five games. Look for Quinton Coples to see a major increase in snaps today. But Richardson's absence is good news for the Texans offense.
