Jets holding DE Wilkerson out for Saints game

Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, who has a history of violating team rules, won't make the trip to New Orleans for Sunday's game in what Todd Bowles called a "coach's decision."

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson won't make the trip to New Orleans, Todd Bowles announced. This is not injury-related, it's a coach's decision. This is the second time in three weeks that Wilkerson has been disciplined. Needless to say, his time in New York appears over.

Defense will key Saints' win over Jets (0:24)

Jets OC: We ran up white flag in Broncos' rout

Jets offensive coordinator John Morton acknowledged on Thursday that he just wanted to run out the clock with the team down 23-0 in the fourth quarter Sunday because he felt the Jets "didn't have a chance" to rally against the Broncos.

Jets practice (early look-in): It looks like RB Eli McGuire (ankle) will miss practice for the second straight day. RB Matt Forte (knee) participated in the early portion, but its wait-and-see. CB Mo Claiborne (foot), who sat out yesterday, looks like he's ready to practice.

New Jets QB Bryce Petty believes he's been "trending upward" the last two years, but he's not looking at Sunday as an individual audition. He's thinking about team goals. He said his goal is to play well "for these guys in the locker room, it's for Josh (McCown). He set a standard as to how to be a professional, how to be a quarterback." McCown underwent surgery Tuesday on his fractured left hand.
