Wilkerson (ankle) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, according to his personal Instagram.
Wilkerson was placed on injured reserve Saturday after he broke his ankle in Week 3 against the Redskins. He'll now begin the rehab process in hopes of being full recovered for the beginning of next season.
Wilkerson will not return to Sunday's game against the Redskins due to an ankle injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Wilkerson was taken to the hospital after suffering the injury, Rapoport also reported. The 2015 All-Pro seems to have suffered a significant injury, though details remain undisclosed. Expect an update on Wilkerson's health shortly following Sunday's game.
Wilkerson did not participate in Tuesday's practice due to groin soreness, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Fortunately for the Packers, Wilkerson's injury isn't being viewed as a serious one, and the veteran defensive end is likely just getting the day off as a precautionary measure. Despite coming off back-to-back down seasons following an All-Pro 2015 campaign, Wilkerson is expected to start on the defensive line in Green Bay alongside Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark.
Wilkerson's deal with Green Bay was announced on Tuesday but wasn't made official until Thursday. He'll join Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark as the Packers' starting defensive linemen.
Wilkerson will sign with the Packers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Wilkerson will reunite with Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, who was in the same position with the Jets when Wilkerson was drafted in 2011. The 28-year-old has recorded 44.5 career sacks over the span of seven seasons and will look to bounce back in his new home after a disappointing past two seasons.
