An interesting stat on Wilkerson from last issue of JC Dan Leberfeld

The following is from the January, 2018 issue of Jets Confidential Magazine . . .

Before his three-week de-activation at the end of the season, and after his toe and shoulder improved, Wilkerson put together a nice stretch of football, as a key cog in a run defense that took a major step forward.

November 2 – Jets-Bills – LeSean McCoy, 12 carries for 25 yards.

November 12 – Jets-Buccaneers – Doug Martin, 20 carries for 51 yards.

November 26 – Jets-Panthers – Jonathan Stewart, 15 carries for 26 yards.

December 3 – Jets-Chiefs – Kareem Hunt, 9 carries for 40 yards.

December 10 – Jets-Broncos – C.J. Anderson, 22 carries for 48 yards, Devantae Booker, 9 carries, 22 yards.

Here are the three games after Wilkerson was benched . . .

December 17 – Jets-Saints – Mark Ingram 12 carries for 72 yards, Alvin Kamara 12 carries for 44 yards.

December 24 – Jets-Chargers – Melvin Gordon, 19 carries for 81 yards.

December 31 – Jets-Patriots – Dion Lewis, 26 carries for 93 yards, Brandon Boldin, 9 carries for 46 yards.

The Jets’ run defense was better for the five games prior to Wilkerson being shut down.
