Jets' Milliner dealing with quad, ankle issues

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner is now dealing with tightness in his quadriceps in addition to a nagging high ankle sprain, leaving his status uncertain for Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

Milliner did not practice Friday after being limited Thursday. Coach Rex Ryan is ''hopeful'' his top cornerback will be able to play, but acknowledged his absence at practice ''is not a great sign.''

Wide receiver Eric Decker sat out practice for the third straight day as he recovers from right hamstring tightness. He could be a game-time decision.

Backup linebackers Nick Bellore (hip) and A.J. Edds (hamstring) were limited after not practicing Thursday. Running back Chris Johnson (ankle), center Nick Mangold (shoulder) and right guard Willie Colon (calf) were also limited, but are expected to play.
