New York Jets de­fen­sive end Muham­mad Wilk­er­son is ques­tion­able to play against the Bal­ti­more Ravens on Sun­day be­cause of an ail­ing right an­kle. Wilk­er­son didn’t prac­tice Fri­day af­ter be­ing limited Thurs­day. Coach Todd Bowles says Wilk­er­son didn’t have a set­back, but was “more sore than nor­mal” and could be a game-time de­ci­sion. Bowles added “it’s pos­si­ble” Wilk­er­son will not play. Wilk­er­son had a ca­reer-high 12 sacks last sea­son be­fore break­ing his right fibula in the reg­u­lar-sea­son fi­nale at Buf­falo. He re­ceived a five-year, $86 mil­lion deal in July and worked his way back from the in­jury to be ready for the sea­son opener, in which he had 1 ½ sacks. Wilk­er­son has been mostly quiet since, and said in an in­ter­view with Newsday that his foot has been both­er­ing him “for a cou­ple weeks.”
