Report: Jets OLB Coples to replace injured Wilkerson at DE
by Marty Gitlin |

A turf toe injury that could sideline Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson against Miami on Monday night will probably force outside linebacker Quinton Coples to move into that spot, according to the New York Daily News.

Coples has not been particularly productive. He has just 22 tackles and three sacks in 11 games.

Jets LB Quinton Coples expects bigger role in Week 8
by R.J. White |

Jets linebacker Quinton Coples didn't start for the first time last week and played just 19 snaps, but he expects to return to a bigger role Sunday against the Bills, reports.

"It's back to what it was before Thursday," Coples said after practice Wednesday. "I'll be getting a lot more reps, and back out there a lot more than I was this past Thursday."

When asked if Coples would return to a starting role, coach Rex Ryan said, "Sure, why not?" before adding, "We play our players. We play all our guys."

Coples has recorded just five tackles and one sack in seven games this season.

Jets LB Quinton Coples has played himself to the bench
by Marty Gitlin |

Poor production has basically pushed Jets outside linebacker Quinton Coples to the bench. The 2012 first-round pick barely played Thursday night against New England. He was replaced by Jason Babin.

Coples hasn't recorded more than two tackles in a game and has just five on the season. The game against the Patriots marked his first non-start of 2014. His fate appeared set when Babin took more reps than him in Week 6 against Denver. Although Rex Ryan downplayed that, Coples' benching against New England spoke volumes about his thoughts.
