Initially booed by the Gillette Stadium crowd for going down in the fourth quarter, Wilkerson was able to leave the stadium on his own power after the 13-10 loss to the Patriots on Thursday night.
“[I] got carted off,” Wilkerson said. “Hopefully we see the X-rays and hopefully it’s good.”
Jets coach Rex Ryan said he was hopeful that his defensive end wasn’t too hurt.
“It’s an ankle, but hopefully it's not a high ankle," Ryan said. "I’m hoping it’s not."
Wilkerson left the locker room wearing a pair of slip-on shoes, but later had his right ankle wrapped with ice as he left the stadium.
“It’s a long season,” he said. “So I’m not too concerned.”
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- One of the key members of the New York Jets' defensive front, Muhammad Wilkerson, left the game on a cart after sustaining an ankle injury.
