Jalen Saunders in Minor Car Accident

Rich Schultz

According to the New York Jets, rookie wide receiver and punt returner Jalen Saunders was in a single car accident on his way to the team's facilities this morning. The team implied Saunders is not seriously injured, if injured at all, and went to a hospital as a precautionary measure and for observation. He will, however, miss tomorrow's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Obviously, this is not great news and we wish Saunders all the best. It doesn't sound like he's suffered a serious injury, so hopefully he can rejoin his teammates soon enough. In the meantime, someone else will get a shot at wide receiver and punt returner tomorrow.
