Nick Mangold suffers knee injury

Though coach Rex Ryan says it’s no big deal, Jets center Nick Mangold suffered a knee injury during practice on Sunday.

“It is a knee, but it’s not a serious thing,” Ryan said.  “I don’t know the timetable, he may miss a practice or two, I’m not real sure.  But it’s not serious.

“I’m not exactly sure [what the injury is], but it’s nothing serious.  There was no ligament damage or anything else.  It’s probably more of an inconvenience than anything else.  Anytime you deal with a knee though, it’s pretty scary.  He should be fine.”

One thing we’ve learned over the past few days is that the initial diagnosis of a knee injury can change, dramatically — whether it’s initially believed to be an ACL tear but isn’t, or whether it’s not believed to be an ACL tear but is.

    His sister, “Two Tons o’ Fun” Holly Mangold, can probably be signed quickly to fill in for him.

    “It’s only a fleshwound!”
    (And by the way, note to Florio – are there some injuries which don’t involve suffering?”)

    It seems to me that the Jets have the most across-the-board talent of any starting O-line in the league, but the least depth. If they lose any of those guys for any significant length of time, it’s gonna be a long year for Sanchez. Or Clemens.
    I was surprised that they waited till the 6th round to draft a linemen. Oh, wait. That’s right. They went all-in to get Sanchez so they didn’t have any picks left.

    Probably Mangini’s fault, eh Jets fans?
    Man are the Jets going to suck this year. Hahahahaha.
