I know Bowles and Rex have different schemes and roles for their defense, but I have to imagine there's a role for Milliner.
I can't seem to figure out if the team is just bringing Milliner on slowly or truly doesn't like his game.
If Marcus Williams is dealing with a MCL injury and Revis still in concussion protocol, the Jets need to turn to Dee Milliner.
Bowles said he played McDougle over Dee Milliner in dime package because McDougle has worked at inside CB, while Milliner is outside CB.
In three games since returning from short-term IR, Dee Milliner has played zero total defensive snaps and 16 on ST. https://t.co/Ort4cDCg5f
#Jets CB snaps:
Cro: 72. (100%)
M. Williams (injured): 8.
Dee Milliner: 0. (played 8 snaps on ST)
2013 first-round pick Dee Milliner played 0 snaps on defense. 8 snaps on special teams. #nyj
Why didn't Dee Milliner play?
Bowles: "No reason."
Bowles was asked why Dee Milliner didn't play. ...His response?
"No reason." https://t.co/aBGD8OhK1C
Interesting that Dee Milliner not playing with all these CB injuries. Dexter McDougle's in as the dime corner.
If 3 or 4 more cornerbacks get hurt maybe we'll see Dee Milliner today.
Jets were in dime package with Dexter McDougle in there. Still ahead of Dee Milliner on the depth chart. #nyj
Lots of changes on the Jets injury report this week: Cromartie, McDougle, Milliner, Powell, Pryor no longer on it. #nyj
Attention, Dee Milliner: Jets' former No. 1 picks aren't safe https://t.co/m67pRmDdEQ
Dee Milliner was a healthy scratch, per Bowles. Lineup etched in stone by Friday, when he had recovered from illness. #nyj
Todd Bowles said Dee Milliner was technically a healthy scratch, but it stemmed from him missing so much practice time last week (illness).
Milliner was a healthy scratch, Bowles said. He was unable to practice last week due to an illness
Dee Milliner missed 2 days of practice w/ an illness, but he was listed as probable. Thus, a healthy scratch. Ninth pick in '13 draft. #nyj

Is Dee Milliner a bust? #JETS #NYJ #NFL https://t.co/1PO78eZ3Hu https://t.co/TkjEWlInd4
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Eric Decker, Darrelle Revis, Brandon Marshall, Calvin Pryor, Antonio Cromartie, Dee Milliner, Bilal Powell probable
Dee Milliner fully practiced today and is fine to play Sunday after recovering from his illness.
#Jets Sheldon Richardson (hammy) is off to side of practice field doing rehab along with Milliner
Dee Milliner is also doing some stuff in the rehab area as the Jets have a special teams period.
#Jets CB Dee Milliner - who's been sick all week - back at practice today
CB Dee Milliner (absent all week with illness) and DL Sheldon Richardson (hamstring) both have their helmets at the start of practice.
Looks like the Jets should have Dee Milliner on Sunday. They won't have Dion Bailey. Only lingering injury question is Sheldon Richardson.
Dee Milliner (illness) missed the past two days. But he's here today participating in warmups.
Is it time to call Dee Milliner a draft bust? #NFLDraft #NFL #NYJ https://t.co/1PO78eZ3Hu https://t.co/TkjEWlInd4
