Saunders in car accident Friday morning, won’t play Saturday

Fourth-round pick rookie WR Jalen Saunders was involved in a single-car accident this morning on the way to the Jets practice facility in New Jersey.

“Saunders was taken to a hospital and is being monitored there as a precaution,” the Jets announced. “He will not travel to Cincinnati with the team and is out for Saturday night’s game against the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.”

Saunders was recently reported to be the top candidate to return punts this year (TJB, August 14).

What the hell? At this rate we're going to have the opposite problem of meeting the 53 man roster come September, while other teams will need to make tough decisions on who to cut, the Jets will need to consider bringing in additional players to make the 53 man roster. geez.

Well hopefully Bent has a BGA ready when I get back from camp Sunday afternoon so I can get the low down on the game.

it doesn't say he was seriously injured so that's good for him, but any of the other receivers drafted can be used for punt returns if they can catch the ball consistently

Well at least we still have Cromartie to step in.......oh wait we gave him away .......Well at least Brandon Flowers can start at corner....oh wait we didn't get him either.....Here we go Rogers-Cromartie Your Time to Shine.......oh wait we don't have him...

What? A second day draft choice who might not have played much this season is out? Sign Santonio Holmes! Let's move one of our TEs to WR tomorrow! Fire Idzik for not getting Maclin or Nicks during free agency! Ahhhhh!!!!

This is disappointing our rookies have given us absolute zilch to be excited about.

Starting to think this might be our worst draft in the last couple years but only time will tell and hopefully I'm wrong.

We really need to put Pryor and Amaro in witness protection.

Maclin's gonna be huge this year. If any of you are fantasy guys, grab him.

Idzik has a plan....

The plan is to tell Jets fans he has no regrets, hide from the media, and go into his bunker....

However - should Decker get injured that will be his plan

I think there's a difference between a bad draft and an "unsexy" draft. To me, it looks like this draft was two starters and the rest are depth. Depth is just as important as starters, as we've seen this camp.

Because of a car accident and a torn acl? We haven't played a game yet... Give the guys time to show you something before you say they are a disappointment.
