FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson was a full participant at practice after being benched at New Orleans on Sunday, but his playing status remains uncertain.

Coach Todd Bowles says Wednesday that Wilkerson “served his sentence” after being late for a team meeting last Friday. But Bowles would not commit to Wilkerson playing Sunday in the Jets’ home finale against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Wilkerson says he let the Jets down and addressed his teammates during a meeting Monday.

The 28-year-old Wilkerson is the Jets’ highest-paid player and is in the middle of a five-year deal worth $86 million. His $16.75 million salary for next season would become fully guaranteed if he remains on New York’s roster by the third day of the league’s new year in March. That money is also fully guaranteed against a serious injury.
