Milliner finishes the year with six tackles and two passes defensed over the course of two games.
- Rapoport adds that Milliner will undergo further tests on Monday to confirm.
If Milliner does in fact have a torn Achilles, it would obviously be a season-ending injury. The fact that Milliner went down with a non-contact injury implied that it was this was a major injury for the young cornerback.
Milliner, 23, is in the second year of his four-year, $12.66 million contract and will make a base salary of $495,000 for the 2014 season.
The Jets used a high first-round pick on Milliner with the hope that he could solidify one of their cornerback positions. However, he has been ineffective at times and has been hampered with injuries since enter the league.
