The Jets remained mum on the health of rookie receiver Jalen Saunders on Monday as details emerged from his one-car accident Friday morning
Florham Park, N.J., police released an accident report which said Saunders had a “medical event” while driving a 2014 Toyota Corolla. Saunders, driving to the Jets facility to begin the trip to Cincinnati, was attempting to make a left turn from southbound Park Avenue onto Florham Road about 7:50 a.m. He failed to make a full turn, crossed the northbound lanes and struck a curb before coming to rest in the grass, less than a mile from the facility.
Saunders was released from the hospital Sunday, and Rex Ryan said Monday he won’t play Friday against the Giants (Newsday, Aug. 18).
“Right now, we’re taking a cautious approach with him, which is a smart approach,” Ryan said.
No medical details were released.
Saunders was back at the facility Monday. After working out on a stationary bike, he watched practice from the sideline.
