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.

The 22-year-old Milliner is entering his sophomore season with the Jets. In 2013, he grabbed three interceptions and made 56 tackles in 13 games. 

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
