Instead, they got a player that can only be described as unlucky. Talented, but snakebitten nonetheless.
The Jets announced today that Milliner will undergo surgery on his wrist, a procedure that will keep him out for at least 6-8 weeks. The former first-round pick has played in 16 games over his first two seasons.
In 2014, he missed 13 games with a torn Achilles tendon after missing a majority of camp with an ankle injury.
The sad part is, Milliner's body just may be burned out. He pushed his way through injury at a high level during his college tenure only to find that certain ailments never go away.
