FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey — New York Jets defensive end is day to day with a tweaked hamstring that kept him out of practice Tuesday.

Wilkerson spent the early portion of practice on a stationary bike, and then remained in the trainers' area the rest of the time. He was injured during practice Sunday, when he walked off the field and went to the locker room with a trainer.

The team was off from practice Monday. The injury isn't believed to be serious.

Coach says "hopefully" Wilkerson will be available to practice Wednesday, but added that the Jets are going to be cautious with the injury.

Running back remains on the active-physically unable to play list as he recovers from torn right knee ligaments last season.
