FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson will not play against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday because of turf toe.

The Jets downgraded Wilkerson from doubtful to out on Saturday, and the team announced the defensive end wouldn’t travel to Tennessee.

Wilkerson, who has 4 1/2 sacks this season, has missed the last two games after injuring his left big toe when his foot got stuck in the turf at Detroit’s Ford Field in the Jets’ 38-3 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 24. He returned to practice this week on a limited basis, but is not ready to play. Quinton Coples is expected to start again at Wilkerson’s defensive end spot, with Jason Babin filling Coples’ usual outside linebacker role.
