New York Jets Injury Update: Mark Sanchez Breaks Nose, Antonio Cromartie Hurt

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez suffered what the team is calling a “minor break” to his nose during the Jets 34-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie also reportedly suffered a bruised lung and ribs. As previously reported, reserve tight end Jeff Cumberland tore his Achilles Tendon. He has been placed on injured reserve.

“I think it’s probably minor to everybody else (Sanchez’s broken nose), probably more than that to him. If we had our nose broken, we would probably think it was more than minor,” said Jets coach Rex Ryan.

Sanchez likely won’t be modeling for any magazine covers in the near future, but it does not seem likely he will miss any time.

Ryan said Cromartie is “day-to-day.” The coach also said center Nick Mangold, who missed Sunday’s game against Oakland with a high ankle sprain is “probably day-to-day.” Mangold’s status for Sunday will be determined later this week.


Jeff Cumberland Injury: Jets Backup Tight End Lost For Season

New York Jets backup tight end Jeff Cumberland will be lost to the team for the remainder of the season after suffering a torn Achilles Tendon in Sunday’s 34-24 loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Cumberland had just two catches in the first three games before going down with the injury early in the second quarter.

The Jets signed the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Cumberland as an undrafted free agent prior to last season. He played in just one game in 2010, catching one pass for three years.

According to the Daily News the Jets had hoped to use Cumberland — a pass-catching tight end — in tandem with regular tight end Dustin Keller as the season progressed.

That option has now been taken away from offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and quarterback Mark Sanchez. Keller and blocking tight end Matt Mulligan are now the only two tight ends on the Jets’ roster.

Nick Mangold Out Sunday: Full Jets-Raiders Injury Report

Nick Mangold will not play Sunday for the New York Jets when the travel to California to face the Oakland Raiders. That news had been expected since the Pro Bowl center did not practice this week due to a high ankle sprain, but the Jets waited until today to make it official.

"He’s just not ready. That’s as simple as that," said Jets coach Rex Ryan.

Mangold has started 82 consecutive games.

For the Raiders, former New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss is expected to make his season debut. He is listed as "probable" after having missed the first two games of the season with a knee injury.
