Jets DL Muhammad Wilkerson out Sunday due to 'coach's decision,' report says

"He asked for it, but we were going to ask him anyway, if he was up to it", coach Todd Bowles said Thursday. He didn't specify why, but stated that it was not injury related and was instead a "coach's decision", per several accounts. It's not clear if that's also the reason for this decision, but Bowles said that Wilkerson and linebacker Darron Lee, who was inactive for the K.C. game, would have to earn trust back. He has battled injuries the past few seasons, but has lacked the playmaking explosiveness that he had earlier in his career - particularly during his Pro Bowl campaign during the 2015 season. While Jets offensive coordinator John Morton has already expressed interest in bringing McCown back under center, the Cleveland Browns previously attempted to add the journeyman quarterback to the team's coaching staff if he did not land a job as a player this season.

"He has a feel for people", head coach Todd Bowles said.

He broke his right leg at the end of that year, and it affected his play last season.

MA is named the healthiest state in America
It ranked Colorado as the second most physical, and has the second lowest percentage of children living in poverty. It also has some of the lowest rates of salmonella, diabetes, and preventable hospitalizations in the country.

Now it appears unlikely that Wilkerson will be part of the team beyond this season. Wilkerson wasn't seen at practice or in the locker room on Friday.

Wilkerson clearly wants out of NY and the Jets will likely grant his wish by cutting him this offseason.

Demario Davis said Bowles informed the team of Wilkerson's latest punishment.

Closer look needed ... At chain migration, Visa Lottery
FAIR urges its members to contact their members of Congress and urge them to end chain migration and eliminate the visa lottery. The perpetrator of the October attack entered the USA through the visa lottery.

Wilkerson is in the second year of the five-year contract he signed in 2016 and he's set to make $16.75 million next season.

Are you ready for what some might deem as absurd? It's a tough challenge, so we all have to be locked in.

Besides the money issues, there's Wilkerson's time issues and the fall-off in his play.

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale hails 'great' victor , slams VAR
But Cristiano Ronaldo equalized early in the second half and Bale netted the victor less than a minute after replacing Karim Benzema.

The Jets have decided not to activate wide receiver-kick returner Jeremy Kerley, who's served his four-game suspension for violation of the league's substance abuse policy. They would still incur a $9 million dead money charge, but considering Wilkerson's chronic issues, releasing him in the offseason seems like best - and frankly, only - option moving forward. As we pointed nearly two months ago, playing him regularly was an irresponsible move.
