Report: Jets fear Dee Milliner, Brian Winters have season-ending injuries

Sunday October 12th, 2014

New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner and offensive guard Brian Winters are feared to be lost for the season after injuries suffered in the Jets' 31-17 loss to the Denver Broncos, reports the New York Daily News.

Milliner was injured in the first quarter on a Denver field goal attempt. He is believed to have ruptured his right Achilles.

Winters may have a torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. Both players will have MRIs on Monday to confirm the severity of the injuries.

Milliner, who was the No. 9 overall selection in the 2013 NFL draft, missed three games earlier this season because of an ankle injury and quad strain. He has six total tackles and two pass defended this season.

Winters, in his second season out of Kent State, appeared in all 16 games last season, with 12 starts. He has started all six games for New York in 2014.

The Jets (1-5) have lost five games in a row and play the New England Patriots (4-2) on Thursday night.
