Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Expected to need 6 months for rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson (fractured tibia) is expected to require six months for recovery and rehab, Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News reports.

Given that Wilkerson suffered the injury in Week 17 and had surgery shortly thereafter, he can safely be ruled out for offseason activities. He does have a shot to be ready for the start of training camp, but with his rookie contract set to expire, it's unclear what team he will be playing for. Even with Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams also in the fold, the New York Jets are believed to have serious interest in ponying up to keep Wilkerson around. The injury might lead to a slight discount, but Wilkerson will inevitably still become one of the league's highest-paid defensive players.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson underwent successful surgery on his fractured right tibia and is expected to make a full recovery, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Wilkerson's presence on the field can't always be measured on the stat sheets, but 2015 was one of his best statistical seasons nonetheless, as the 26-year-old collected 64 combined tackles, a career-best 12 sacks and two forced fumbles. He'll be a free agent this offseason, and although the surgery may result in a discounted price tag, his healthy isn't expected to be a major concern heading into the 2016 regular season.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Surgery upcoming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson (leg) will have surgery on his fractured right tibia in about a week.

Wilkerson's timetable for recovery is undetermined at this point, but with the New York Jets narrowly missing out on the playoffs, he finishes this season with a career-high 12 sacks. That production figures to make Wilkerson an attractive free agent despite his injury this offseason, although he's also a candidate to receive the Jets' franchise tag.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: .Records five tackles in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson recorded five tackles before leaving the game with a broken leg Sunday against the Bills

Wilkerson finished the last year of his rookie deal having posted double-digit sacks in two of his last three seasons. Although he'll be a free agent this off-season, he's a prime candidate for the franchise tag, which would keep him with the New York Jets next year. Most likely, his broken leg won't be an issue as he prepares for the 2016 season. He'll be an excellent fantasy option going forward, based on his ability to rush the quarterback.

Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson: Sufers broken leg Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Muhammad Wilkerson suffered a broken leg during Sunday's loss to the Bills.

ESPN's Rich Cimini relays via coach Todd Bowles that Wilkerson probably needs surgery to repair his broken leg, but with the New York Jets eliminated from the postseason, the defensive end will now have the entire offseason to heal up. The Pro Bowler is slated to become a free agent at the end of the current season, though the Daily News suggests that the Jets could elect to franchise the defensive lineman.
