The Jets have placed right guard Willie Colon on injured reserve. They filled the roster spot by activating cornerback Dee Milliner.
Colon is a loss for the Jets, but this does not come as a major surprise. Since 2010, last season was the only year that did not end in a major injury for Colon. On some level, it was disappointing that Colon was starting at all. There were many young players who had a chance to claim the starting job in training camp. None did so Colon got the job. Brian Winters will now return to the starting lineup.
Activating Milliner will if nothing else add an extra body to a secondary that has been depleted by injuries. This will be a chance to start turning his career around.
