Cimini notes that Nick Mangold is probably going to get back in the lineup against the Patriots this Sunday after missing two games.
Jets All-Pro C Nick Mangold will play Sunday, according to Rex Ryan.
It does not take a genius to tell you this is great news for the Jets. The thought of an undrafted rookie center facing Vince Wilfork is as scary as...well the thought of an undrafted rookie center facing Haloti Ngata. Mangold gives the Jets a much better matchup and an legitimate shot at the team getting its run game on track.
In other good news, Plaxico Burress and Calvin Pace were back on the practice field today. The ailments that kept them out Tuesday seem to have been as minor as advertised. Since the Jets just lost the other starter at his position for the season, it is particularly good to hear that Pace is back on the practice field.
