The Jets benched defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson for the first quarter of Sunday's victory over the Chiefs after he showed up late to a team meeting the day before.

And that's not the first time it's happened this year.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Wilkerson has regularly shown up late to team's morning meetings this season. Sometimes, he misses them altogether.

The source said a combination of the two infractions has happened at least five times since the preseason. The Jets have a full-team meeting in the morning. When late, Wilkerson, will show up at some point during the team meeting, or just after.

The Jets declined comment through a team spokesperson.
