Wilkerson (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.
Wilkerson missed two days of practice this week due to the ankle ailment, and the Pro Bowl defensive end will sit out his first game of the season as a result. Look for Jarvis Jenkins to see an increased snap count in Wilkerson's stead.
Wilkerson (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday against the Ravens, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
Wilkerson has started every game this season, but didn't practice Wednesday with a vague ankle injury. He returned to the field Thursday, though, so the injury doesn't seem serious. Jarvis Jenkins will likely take his place in the starting lineup if Wilkerson is ultimately unavailable.
Wilkerson absence from practice is somewhat unexpected, as it is unclear when he sustained the ankle injury. He has started every game for the Jets this season, including their most recent loss to the Jets when he recorded two tackles and pass defended. Jarvis Jenkins would be in line to fill in for Wilkerson if he is unable to go for Week 7.
Wilkerson was limited in practice each day this week but the injury was never expected to keep him out long. After a seven-tackle, 1.5 sack game in Week 1, the defensive lineman proved once again that he's one of the better IDP options in the league.
Wilkerson was very active on the field in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, as he led the team with seven tackles. He also recorded 1.5 sacks. The severity of the veteran linebacker's ankle injury is unknown, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the short week.
