Jalen Saunders still not sure what happened to him

Jets rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders didn’t shed much light on the “medical incident” that sent him to the hospital after he drove his car off the road last week, but he said he didn’t think whatever it was would jeopardize his career.

But he also made it clear he’s still looking for answers, as they make sure he’s well before putting him back on the field.

I’m not sure what it is,” Saunders said, via Darryl Slater of the Newark Star-Ledger. “That’s why I got the tests done on me. I’m still waiting on information to get back from the team doctors. So whenever I figure out what is going on with my body, I’ll be happy to share what’s going on.”

The fourth-rounder, who figured to be their punt returner this year, said he’s not sure if there are long-term implications or whether it could crop up again.

The Jets won’t use him this weekend against the Giants, but Sauders said he’s “not concerned at all” about his football career being impacted.

“I still have a bright future ahead of me,” he said. “That’s my gut feeling. I’ve got God by my side, so that’s all that matters.”

That and the opinion of the doctors. He spent two nights in the hospital getting tests, and still needs more information to make sure he’s going to be well.

    Luckily he’s got God on his side. Not everyone can say that.

    He may end up developing super-powers. Which might be the only way that offense will ever click.

    Once again… God makes an appearance… NFL games should be held in a place of worship… After all he’s always on the players side…

    Just have the guts to say that you don’t like the Jets and their fans. Being passive-aggressive about it is embarrassing.
