Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson is out for Sunday's game against the game after he was benched for showing up late to the team facility Friday.
Wilkerson will not travel with the team to New Orleans as it was a 'coaching decision,' according to head coach Todd Bowles. Wilkerson supposedly showed up to the facility "very late," a source told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano. This is the third straight year the 28-year-old has been benched for being late.
This season, Wilkerson has been underperforming with only 3.5 sacks and 46 combined tackles.
Also listed on the injury report were RB Matt Forte (knee) and G Brian Winters (abdomen, ankle). Forte has not practiced all week after Sunday's contest against the Broncos, where he only saw eight combined touches for 34 yards. Winters has been a limited practice participant for the past two days.
Elijah McGuire (ankle), Morris Claiborne (foot), and Rontez Miles (hamstring) were all limited practice participants on Thursday, but were full participants Friday. They are all expected to play on Sunday.
