Jets' Wilkerson questionable vs. Ravens with ailing ankle
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is questionable to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday because of an ailing right ankle.
Wilkerson didn't practice Friday after being limited Thursday. Coach Todd Bowles says Wilkerson didn't have a setback, but was ''more sore than normal'' and could be a game-time decision. Bowles added ''it's possible'' Wilkerson will not play.
Wilkerson had a career-high 12 sacks last season before breaking his right fibula in the regular-season finale at Buffalo. He received a five-year, $86 million deal in July and worked his way back from the injury to be ready for the season opener, in which he had 1 1/2 sacks.
Wilkerson has been mostly quiet since, and said in an interview with Newsday that his foot has been bothering him ''for a couple weeks.''
