Muhammad Wilkerson will not require surgery on his left big toe (Costello, Nov. 29).

Wilkerson is suffering from what is known as turf-toe. There were initial concerns that the injury may be severe enough to require season ending surgery.

Although he hasn't been officially ruled out for Monday nights game, it is all but assumed considering he remains in a walking boot. Wilkerson hasn't missed a game since joining the Jets in 2011.
