FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets have waived cornerback Leon McFadden, who was claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Browns two weeks ago.

The move Thursday could be another sign that top cornerback Dee Milliner is ready to make his season debut. Milliner suffered a high left ankle sprain on Aug. 10, and only returned to practice this week.

Ryan says he feels “pretty confident” Milliner will play against Green Bay on Sunday. He adds that Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls might start for a second straight game, but Milliner could see action.

McFadden, a third-round draft pick by the Browns last year, was claimed by the Jets on Aug. 31. He was inactive for New York’s season opener last Sunday against Oakland.

The Jets didn’t immediately announce a corresponding roster move.
