Nick Mangold Has Injured Ankle; It Is Not Broken

Nick Mangold left the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first half with an apparent ankle injury. We have some updates from some beat writers.

Rod Boone:

Nick Mangold is wearing a walking boot and is on crutches. Said he's been told it's not broken

Jane McManus:

Nick Mangold had boot on right ankle and crutches. It's a sprain, was on sideline in 2Q because he hopes he could return to game.

Manish Mehta:

Nick Mangold in a boot. Says right ankle not broken. He's unsure if it's a high ankle sprain. MRI tomorrow


I was terrified it was a serious knee injury when I saw the way the leg bent. The fact he avoided that is something of a good sign. Nick is not out of the woods yet, though. High ankle sprains can be quite serious. It is probably not season ending, but it could cost him some time or at least affect him. If there is one thing we know about Nick Mangold, though, it is that he is extremely tough. Collin Baxter had a rough time in his place today. With a run of teams with really good interior linemen coming up starting next week in Oakland, the Jets need him back at full strength as soon as possible.
