The Jets have considered sitting Muhammad Wilkerson for a game to help him heal his shoulder and toe injuries, Todd Bowles said Friday. “There’s been a thought. We discuss it day by day and week by week and go from there,” Bowles said. “But we don’t make anybody play that doesn’t want to play.” Wilkerson missed practice for the third straight day Friday and is officially questionable for Sunday’s game in Miami. He’s been battling a Grade 1 AC joint sprain since a Week 2 loss at the Raiders, and he injured his toe two weeks ago in Cleveland. Bowles has said both injuries are impacting the defensive lineman equally. Wilkerson is still without a sack through six games this season. He hasn’t practiced fully since before the Oakland game. “It’s been good enough to play on Sunday thus far,” Bowles said of the injuries. “We’ll see this Sunday. We’ll go from there.” Wilkerson has largely been a disappointment since signing an $86 million extension before the 2016 season. Last year, he battled lingering effects of offseason surgery to mend a broken leg he suffered in the 2015 finale. He made it through just one game this year before confronting another injury.
