The Jets have deliberate sitting Muhammad Wilkerson for a diversion to help him reanimate his shoulder and toe injuries, Todd Bowles pronounced Friday.
“There’s been a thought. We plead it day by day and week by week and go from there,” Bowles said. “But we don’t make anybody play that doesn’t wish to play.”
Wilkerson missed use for the third true day Friday and is strictly controversial for Sunday’s diversion in Miami. He’s been battling a Grade 1 AC corner twist given a Week 2 detriment at the Raiders, and he harmed his toe two weeks ago in Cleveland. Bowles has pronounced both injuries are impacting the defensive lineman equally.
Wilkerson is still but a pouch by 6 games this season. He hasn’t used entirely given before the Oakland game.
“It’s been good adequate to play on Sunday so far,” Bowles pronounced of the injuries. “We’ll see this Sunday. We’ll go from there.”
Wilkerson has mostly been a beating given signing an $86 million prolongation before the 2016 season. Last year, he battled slow effects of offseason medicine to mend a broken leg he suffered in the 2015 finale. He done it by just one diversion this year before opposed another injury.
“It’s football,” Bowles said. “You can ask everybody in the league, and everybody is battling something. Some can play with them, some can’t. If you can play, there’s not excuses. If you can’t, you got an excuse.”
JORDAN RULED OUT
Tight finish Jordan Leggett aggravated his right knee damage and is the only Jet who’s been ruled out for Sunday’s game. Leggett’s knee swelled up after use Thursday night, according to Bowles. He is undergoing tests.

Leggett missed the first 4 games of the deteriorate since of the knee injury, which he sustained in the final preseason game. He was active for the win over the Browns but didn’t play an descent snap. He was then dead for last week’s detriment to the Patriots. Bowles pronounced he doesn’t know if the damage could be season-ending.

Jets inside linebacker Darron Lee gave Vaccaro a shout-out Friday in Florham Park while relaying a identical message.
“I still consider there’s a lot of things we need to tweak as a invulnerability so we can all be clicking on all cylinders and so that everybody’s making plays. we would contend it’s a work in progress,” Lee said. “I need to speak to Kenny Vaccaro. we need to get my gas mask. I’m not finna let y’all gas me up. Nah. we still got work to do.”
