Jets CB Dee Milliner to undergo wrist surgery, out six to eight weeks
Friday August 7th, 2015

New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner will undergo surgery on his wrist on Friday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks, the team announced

Milliner injured a tendon in his right wrist during practice on Thursday. He had just been medically cleared and returned to team practices on Aug. 1 for the first time since tearing his Achilles tendon last October.

The 23-year-old Milliner was limited to three games last season due to injury. 

As a rookie in 2013, Milliner recorded 56 tackles and three interceptions in 13 games. He was the No. 9 pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
