Jets' Mangold questionable, but should play
Friday, October 7, 2011
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- New York Jets center Nick Mangold is questionable for the team's game at New England, but will likely start after missing the last two games with a high right ankle sprain.
Mangold was limited at practice Friday, as he has been all week, after being injured three weeks ago. But coach Rex Ryan says "I feel good about" Mangold being able to play, and the All-Pro center also says he's optimistic.
Ryan stopped short of saying Mangold would definitely go Sunday. "Well, he's listed as questionable. There's that New England Patriots' response," he quipped.
Mangold was replaced the last two games by rookie Colin Baxter, who struggled last week at Baltimore.
Linebacker Garrett McIntyre, who suffered a concussion against the Ravens, was limited but won't play.
