According to Seth Walder of the New York Daily News,  Jets rookie cornerback Dee Milliner may not get back in the starting lineup anytime soon after being benched on Thursday night. Jets head coach Rex Ryan believes that Milliner’s progress as been stunted due to shoulder surgery back in March. “I don’t know. We’ll see,” Ryan said about his starting status. “The young man, like I said before, it’s unfortunate that he missed so much work. All of minicamp rehabbing the shoulder surgery. He missed a lot of training camp as well, so we kind of just threw him into the fire.” Ryan says Milliner needs more experience. “I just thought that at that time, I just thought it was best that hey, you know what, sit him down, let him watch it and we’ll go with more experience out there,” Ryan said. “That’s what this kid’s lacking, is just the NFL experience. He did play on the biggest stage in college football (at Alabama). I think it’s just a matter of time before he makes the adjustments to the NFL game.” Well the only way Milliner is going to get any experience is if he actually plays.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
