Milliner was the No. 9 overall draft pick for the Jets this past spring, and he's had a rough start to his NFL career. The rookie from Alabama underwent offseason shoulder surgery that kept him out of camp, and then suffered two separate injuries that has cost him playing time.
The lack of practice and reps has hurt, as Milliner has had difficulties on the field and has been publicly called out by Ryan for his play. Milliner did not play in Week 4 and was replaced in the lineup by Darrin Walls, who will once again play opposite Antonio Cromartie in place of the young cornerback.
Meanwhile, receiver Antonio Holmes has yet to be officially ruled out for Monday's game even though a nagging hamstring injury did not allow him to practice this past week. The veteran receiver has just 10 catches for 243 yards this season as he's struggled to find chemistry with rookie quarterback Geno Smith.
