Muhammad Wilkerson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Head coach Todd Bowles said that Wilkerson (hamstring) will miss Friday's game against Atlanta, NJ.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

No surprise here, as Wilkerson had a setback to his injury Saturday. His recent MRI indicated that there is no serious injury, so it's likely that the goal will be to have him ready for the regular season opener. The Jets will need him, as Sheldon Richardson will begin his four-game suspension.
Wilkerson had a "minor little setback" with his hamstring injury and missed Saturday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

Wilkerson will report to training camp Wednesday, ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wilkerson reported to mandatory minicamp, so it would have been surprising if he held out for the start of training camp. He still wants a new contract, but he'll likely let his agent handle the matter while he prepares for the start of the season. Should the two sides fail to work things out, Wilkerson could later benefit from the expected salary-cap jump next offseason. The Jets probably realize they can save money by signing him now, even if the contract puts him among the highest-paid defensive players in the league.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

2014

It looked like the Jets got themselves a steal when they drafted Wilkerson with the 30th overall pick in 2011, but few would have guessed he'd be quite as good as he is today. He won't turn 25 until October, but he's one of the best defenders in the league and probably the best player on the Jets' defense. His success has translated to IDP utility, too, as he has back-to-back seasons with more than 60 tackles, and he broke out for 10.5 sacks in 2013. That sack total might regress a bit, but there's no reason to think he won't make it to 60 tackles for the third consecutive year, and he's yet to miss a game in his three seasons. He's a good high-floor DL1 to pair with a lower-floor, big-play specialist DL2.

2013

The 2011 first-round pick is arguably the top player on the Jets' defense given the offseason departures of Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis. He's an elite run-stopper and recorded 69 tackles and five sacks. If he can avoid injury, the 23-year-old Wilkerson could be poised for his Pro Bowl season.

2012

Like Quinton Coples, Wilkerson is talented enough to push for IDP relevance despite playing in a three-man front. With the arrival of Coples, moreover, any worry Wilkerson might have had about seeing disproportionate attention from opposing blocking schemes is mostly relieved. In any case, he finished his 2010 rookie season with 49 tackles (35 solo), three sacks, one safety and a forced fumble. A naturally strong player with good athleticism for his size, Wilkerson should improve on his rookie numbers in 2012.

2011

After the departure of Shaun Ellis in free agency, Wilkerson is slated to start right away and the Jets are expecting him to immediately contribute to their pass rush. He could be worth an IDP look depending on how training camp and the preseason works out
