Jets injury report: Milliner, Coples sit out
By Matt Ehalt
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- New York Jets cornerback Dee Milliner (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, while linebacker Quinton Coples (ankle) also didn't go.
Milliner has not practiced since straining his hamstring on Sept. 25, and has missed the last two games. He did some individual work during the portion open to the media on Wednesday. It's too early in the week to know whether he has a chance to return Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Coples missed practice as he continues to work his way back after suffering a hairline fracture in his right ankle and undergoing surgery. Jets coach Rex Ryan didn't seem concerned about Coples' absence.
Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett was a surprise non-participant in practice as he sat out with a knee issue. He rode the stationary bike during the portion open to the media.
Offensive lineman Oday Aboushi (knee) returned to practice in a limited capacity. He hasn't played yet this season.
