A Monday MRI has confirmed Florio’s report from Sunday night: Jets center Nick Mangold has a high ankle sprain.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports Mangold is expected to miss a minimum of 2-3 weeks. No further ligament damage was found.
It comes at a bad time for the Jets — not that there is ever a good time to lose an All Pro center. The Jets have three straight road games coming up against the Raiders, Ravens, and Patriots.
