Jets' Mo Wilkerson has sore ribs, Leonard Williams' sprained ankle is fine


FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey — New York Jets defensive end will have precautionary X-rays on his sore ribs that limited him at practice in the team's return from its bye-week break.

Coach says Wilkerson, who leads the team with 3 1/2 sacks, only made the team aware of the injury Monday. The injury isn't believed to be serious or potentially keep him out Sunday against Washington.

Rookie defensive end says he is fully healed from a minor ankle sprain suffered against Miami in London. He fully participated in practice, as did safety , who bruised a knee against the Dolphins.

Among those who didn't practice: linebacker (quadriceps), guard (knee) and running back (quad). Cornerback tweaked a hamstring during practice.
