New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner will likely miss three to four weeks with a high left ankle sprain and his Week 1 status is questionable, reports ESPN's Ed Werder via Rotoworld.
Milliner had to be helped off the field during Sunday's Jets practice after trying to defend a deep pass. He reportedly underwent an MRI afterwards.
Milliner's injury came the same day that Jets rookie cornerback Dexter McDougle tore his ACL, leaving him likely lost for the season.

Last month, Milliner said that he believes he is the best cornerback in the NFL.
The Jets open the regular season on Sept. 7 at home against the Oakland Raiders.
