Injuries and other circumstances saw some Jets defenders get extensive playing time. Rontez Miles did not come off the field in place of an injured Calvin Pryor. Taking Pryor out of the equation for Miles admittedly isn't much of a youth movement. Darron Lee also played every snap, and his role seems to be a full-time one at this point. Deon Simon also got over half the snaps in place of an injured Steve McLendon.
With the Jets officially eliminated, we will likely see less experienced players have their snaps increase going forward.
