This means Milliner will miss at least eight games of the season, but can return for the team’s Week 9 match up.
Milliner sustained a wrist injury earlier in the summer that required surgery. The former first-round pick was expected to be out 6-8 weeks following surgery.
Milliner, 23, is entering the third year of his four-year, $12.66 million rookie contract that included a $7.59 million signing bonus. He stands to make a base salary of $585,000 for the 2015 season and another $675,000 next year.
The Jets will need to decide whether or not to pick up his fifth-year option next April.
In 2014, Milliner appeared in just three games for the Jets and recorded six tackles and two pass defenses after he sustained a season-ending Achilles injury.
