With Milliner's performance sending him to the bench, reporters asked defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman this week whether or not the rookie would start this week against the Raiders. Thurman told the press that "yep" Milliner would be back in the starting lineup, but as to whether or not Milliner would be back to the bench by game's end?
Last week, Jets cornerback Dee Milliner was benched by Rex Ryan after missing a tackle of Dolphins WR Mike Wallace resulted in a touchdown, sinking the Jets deeper into their 23-3 loss.
according to Connor Orr of the Star-Ledger, they have been working hard all summer to be ready for the season so that they can be as effective as Mike Pettine and Dennis Thurman expect them to be this season.
?LaRon and Yeremiah have been doing a great job of communicating between them,? secondary coach Dennis Thurman said. ?We don?t think it?s going to be a problem. We have two new guys who learned the system, and they understand what they need to do within each call.?
