Wilkerson (ankle/toe) has been listed as active for Thursday's matchup with the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson was limited in practice each day this week but the injury was never expected to keep him out long. After a seven-tackle, 1.5 sack game in Week 1, the defensive lineman proved once again that he's one of the better IDP options in the league.

Wilkerson (ankle/toe) is considered questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson was a limited participant for the third straight day at Wednesday's practice, leaving his status for Thursday's Week 2 game up in the air. Given his limited participation in practice throughout the week, the injury doesn't appear to be something that will hold him out for multiple weeks, barring any setbacks.

Wilkerson (ankle) was limited in Monday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson was very active on the field in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, as he led the team with seven tackles. He also recorded 1.5 sacks. The severity of the veteran linebacker's ankle injury is unknown, so his status will need to be monitored throughout the week.

Wilkerson had seven tackles, including 1.5 sacks, during Sunday's 23-22 loss to the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets' defensive line sacked quarterback Andy Dalton seven times while holding the Bengals to just 57 rushing yards, but it wasn't enough to grab an opening day win. Wilkerson co-led the team in tackles (Darrelle Revis), and while he'll likely rack up plenty this season, his IDP value rests in sacks.

Wilkerson (leg) will play in Sunday's tilt with the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson only played in one preseason game as he continues to recover from a fractured tibia he suffered in Week 17 last season. Look for the veteran defensive end to be out on the field Sunday, although his snap count could be heavily monitored.

Wilkerson (leg) could play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, though the decision will likely be made close to kickoff, NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson has yet to play in a preseason game this summer, and with starters traditionally not playing in the fourth game, this would be his last opportunity to get game snaps in before Week 1.

Wilkerson (leg) came off the active/PUP list Tuesday and was cleared to practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson had been recovering from a broken leg suffered in Week 17 against the Bills, but as expected, he was able to fully recover well before the start of the 2016 season. The Jets will likely ease him back into action by holding Wilkerson out of the earlier portion of the preseason schedule, but he should be ready to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup before the regular season kicks off. After accruing a career-high 12 sacks to go with 64 tackles in 2015, Wilkerson signed a five-year, $85 million extension in July to remain with the Jets long term.

The Jets have placed Wilkerson (leg) on the active/PUP list to begin training camp, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson had fractured his tibia Week 17, went under the knife shortly thereafter, and subsequently missed the entirety of the Jets' offseason program. He remains without a definite timeline to return, but is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Wikerson said Wednesday that he expects to be fully recovered from his broken right leg in time to play in Week 1, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson, who suffered the injury in the last week of the 2015 season, didn't specify when he would be able to start participating in training camp, but that his rehab is progressing quickly. He recently signed a new five-year, $85 million contract and is expected to be a major focal point of the Jets' pass rush after picking up 12 sacks last year.

Wilkerson has signed a multi-year extension to remain with the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Wilkerson's deal is for five years and worth roughly $17 million per season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports. While there's no question about his talent, Wilkerson's deal comes as a surprise because it was announced so close to Friday's deadline, and his situation was relatively quiet leading up to the last minute. Nonetheless, the Jets have now secured their 2011 first-rounder for the long haul, solidifying one of the league's best defensive line units. In 16 games last season, Wilkerson posted a career-high 12 sacks to go with 64 tackles, earning his first Pro Bowl selection along the way.
