Jets' Rontez Miles: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (neck/hip) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Miles picked up the neck and hip injuries Week 8 and didn't play in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, and he'll now miss the rest of the season. The special teams captain will finish 2019 with seven total tackles in seven games.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (neck/hip) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Miles has not played a snap on defense in either of the last two weeks as his main role is on special teams. He will miss his first game of the year.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Activated from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets activated Miles to their 53-man roster Friday.

Miles appears to have fully recovered from a meniscus injury sustained during training camp, and he now rejoins Gang Green's active roster. The rotation safety will serve as the primary backup to starter Marcus Maye during Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Sports helmet at practice, won't return in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (knee) was spotted with a helmet on at practice for the first time this season Wednesday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. However, Greenberg also notes that he won't return in Week 8 against the Bears.

Miles landed on the PUP list to begin training camp following a meniscus injury and has yet to return to action. He took a positive step by appearing with his helmet on at practice Wednesday, but there's still no specific timetable laid out for his return at this point.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Starts camp on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (knee) has landed on the PUP list to begin training camp, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Given his 3-to-4 month recovery timetable that surfaced in early June, it's not a huge surprise that the team made the move given the lengthy recovery time remaining ahead of him. Miles is projected to serve as a backup safety and special teams contributor when healthy, though his absence could leave an opening for J.J. Wilcox to slot in higher on the depth chart.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Out 3-to-4 months after meniscus surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles underwent surgery Wednesday to address a torn meniscus in his knee and is expected to be sidelined for 3-to-4 months, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

While the circumstances behind Miles' injury are unclear, it's likely that he hurt the knee at some point during the Jets' offseason program. The projected timetable means that Miles won't be ready for the start of training camp and will almost certainly be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list in the near future. If Miles' recovery trends to the longer end of that time frame, he'll be a candidate for injured reserve, though he could be designated as one of the Jets' two players eligible to return from IR. Miles was projected to serve as the top backup at either safety spot and a core special-teams contributor, but his injury now opens the door for the newly signed J.J. Wilcox to take on greater importance in the New York secondary.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Inks RFA tender to stay with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Miles has served primarily as a special teamer during his tenure in New York. In all likelihood, Miles should reassume his role as leader of that units in 2018. With safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye leading the back end of the secondary, Miles would only see time there if an injury or two were to present itself.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Receives tender from Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles has been tendered by the Jets as an exclusive rights free agent, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Miles posted 24 tackles (21 solo) in 13 games for the Jets in 2017, a significant slide from his productive 2016 season. The 29-year-old played only 125 defensive snaps for the Jets last season, primarily serving as a special teams player.

Jets' Rontez Miles: All set for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints have left Miles (hamstring) off their final injury report heading into Sunday's game versus the Saints.

After logging a full practice Friday, Miles appears to be on track to resume his role providing depth at safety in Week 15. Terrence Brooks would be next in line for extended time should Miles ultimately suffer any setbacks in the contest.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Does not practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury.

Miles is currently a depth option in the Jets' secondary. If Miles is forced to miss Sunday's game against the Saints, Terrence Brooks would be the only backup safety listed behind starters Marcus Maye and Jamal Adams.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (eye) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

With a full practice under his belt, Miles appears on track to suit up Sunday against the Jaguars. If active, Miles would presumably slide into his usual backup role at safety.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Still can't go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (eye) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Miles is still on track mainly to be a special teams player when he is ready to come back, and rookie second-round pick Marcus Maye continues to slot in as the top free safety. Terrence Brooks will receive more work as a reserve safety in Miles' absence.

September 22, 2017 08:16 PM
Jets' Rontez Miles: Given doubtful designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (eye) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

The reserve safety is still waiting to make his season debut. When Miles is healthy again, he still doesn't project to be of much fantasy utility, as his use will primarily come on special teams.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles (eye) will not play in Sunday's game against the Raiders, Darryl Slater of The Star-Ledger reports.

Miles will now officially miss the first two games to open up the regular season due to an orbital fracture. Terrence Brooks will continue to operate as the only reserve safety for New York's defense.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles has an orbital fracture and won't play Sunday against the Bills, Rich Cimini of reports.

Miles suffered an eye laceration and was evaluated for a concussion during the Jets' second preseason game against the Lions, and this is likely another part of that injury.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles suffered a eye laceration and is being evaluated for a concussion, Darryl Slater of the Star-Ledger reports.

The Jets have suffered a few injuries at safety during the preseason, with Miles becoming the fourth one dinged up. New York is banking on a couple of rookies to start at safety, so there's an opportunity for Miles if he can stay healthy.

Jets' Rontez Miles: Performs well in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles recorded just one tackle during the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

Miles stepped up after Calvin Pryor briefly left the game due to injury. The 27-year-old has not seen a lot of action since undergoing season-ending surgery on his shin back in 2014.

After emergency surgery, Jets' Rontez Miles optimistic for another shot
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

Jets safety Rontez Miles is lucky to have another chance in the NFL. A freak injury last season almost took this opportunity away, per

Just before Miles was to make his 2014 debut last December, he suffered what appeared to be a basic calf bruise after a collision with teammate Marcus Williams. He soon realized this was no regular injury. Miles developed compartment syndrome, meaning the blood flow to his calf was restricted because of a buildup of pressure.

Miles was rushed to a hospital and underwent emergency surgery.

"It could've been amputated or the muscle could've been destroyed," Miles said after Wednesday's organized team activities. "It could've been a couple of months or a year or so of recovery, and it would've been hard to come back from that."

Miles has been fighting for a spot on the Jets' roster for the better part of two years. He played in one game in 2013 and was ready for another chance last season before his freak injury. His goal will be even harder now because the safety position is now very crowded, but that won't deter Miles.

"Hey, I can't complain," Miles said. "I'm here and I'm playing football."
