Skrine injured his knee during Thursday's game against the Browns and is questionable to return. Skrine racked up one tackle and half a sack before exiting. Parry Nickeson is slated to see some extra work at slot cornerback as long as Skrine is out.
Skrine posted a team-high seven solo tackles in Monday's win over the Lions. Skrine played in 59 of the team's 70 defensive snaps Monday night in what was a stellar defensive performance from the Jets. The defensive back is coming off a 2017 campaign where he recorded a career-high 56 solo tackles, so Skrine appears to be picking up right where he left off.
Skrine (concussion) will play Thursday against the Bills. Skrine practiced in full Wednesday and presumably has cleared concussion protocol. His return is an opportunistic development for a Jets secondary that could be without top corner Morris Claiborne (foot).
Skrine (concussion) practiced in a limited fashion Monday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. Based on his return to practice, things seem to be trending upwards for Skrine's availability Thursday. With a depleted secondary of sorts on a short week, don't be surprised if the Jets are eager to get Skrine back on the field sooner than later. However, given the nature of head injuries, Skrine will likely have to practice in full before he's good to go.
Skrine notched a sack as part of an eight-tackle effort in Sunday's 20-6 win over the Dolphins. It was a breakout showing for Skrine, who exceeded his tackle total from the first two weeks combined. The starting cornerback will work on adding his first interception of the the season when the Jets welcome the turnover-prone Black Bortles and his Jaguars to town in Week 4.
