Jets C Nick Mangold has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.
Reports of Mangold having a broken leg were unfounded. He'll miss Sunday's finale against the Dolphins, but the high-ankle sprain designation is actually good news given how serious Mangold's Week 16 injury appeared. Going on 31, Mangold remains one of the league's very best centers. Dec 23 - 3:11 PM

The Jets "fear" C Nick Mangold has a fractured fibula.

FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo reports an X-ray revealed no break, however. That would qualify as extremely good news after Vince Wilfork's entire weight fell on Mangold's left leg. Mangold will undergo a Monday MRI. Whatever his injury is, Mangold has played his snap of 2014, leaving Dalton Freeman as the Jets' center.
Dec 21 - 3:30 PM

Jets C Nick Mangold was forced from New York's Week 16 game against the Patriots with a left-ankle injury, and will not return.

Mangold got rolled up in ugly fashion, and the cart was immediately brought out on the field. Players from both teams circled around before he was taken to the locker room. Mangold appeared distraught, and has almost certainly suffered a significant injury. Dalton Freeman is now in the game at center. It's a huge loss for Gang Green.

Nick Mangold briefly left the Jets' Week 15 win over the Titans with a finger injury.

Mangold went down to one knee following a fourth-quarter play and was holding his hand gingerly as he walked off the field. Mangold has his hand examined on the sideline before re-entering the game. Mangold went for an X-ray following the game, and his status will be updated by Wednesday at the latest.
Dec 14 - 9:19 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan expects C Nick Mangold to play in Week 6.

Mangold's MRI must have brought good news. Mangold missed only two plays in Monday's loss, and should be full-go against the Colts even if he's not quite 100 percent.

Jets C Nick Mangold will undergo an MRI on his ankle Tuesday.

Mangold's ankle got bent awkwardly in the third quarter of Monday's loss to the Texans, but he missed just two plays. Still, it's a concern as the Jets' offense went in the tank when Mangold missed two games due to a high-ankle sprain last year.

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Mangold was limited in practice this week, but escaped New York's Week 5 loss to the Patriots healthy. His return provided an instant boost to the Jets' floundering ground attack, which will be going up against a Dolphins run defense allowing an average of 107.5 yards per game.

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) came out of Sunday's win healthy.

Mangold made it back from a Week 2 high-ankle sprain rapidly and had an instant impact on the Jets' running game. Shonn Greene's 83 rushing yards and 4.0 yards per carry were both season-highs.

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) is active, as expected, against the Patriots in Week 5.

Mangold was expected to get a pain-killing shot just before the game. In a move that called to mind Eric Mangini's fruitless mind games, the Jets waited to announce their inactives until well after the list was due in to the league office. Here are the names: QB Kevin O'Connell, WR Logan Payne, RB Bilal Powell, TE Josh Baker, LB Garrett McIntyre, C Colin Baxter, DT Kenrick Ellis.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reports Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) will start against the Patriots Sunday.

As expected. Mangold was expected to miss a minimum of 2-to-3 weeks upon suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 2, so he's returning on the earlier end of expectations. The struggles of rookie Colin Baxter in his place essentially left the Jets with no choice but to rush back their All Pro.

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) says he's "ready to go" for Week 5 against the Patriots.

"Chomping at the bit to get back," Mangold said. "I'm ready to go." Mangold is officially questionable, but HC Rex Ryan has made clear he expects him to play. Mangold's return cannot come soon enough for a Jets offense that could neither run nor pass in a disastrous effort against the Ravens last weekend.

Coach Rex Ryan revealed Thursday that C Nick Mangold (ankle) is ready to play against the Patriots this week.

The Jets offensive line struggled even before Mangold's injury, but it's been in absolute shambles since. As the best center in the NFL, Mangold's return should give the offense a much-needed boost heading into a huge divisional showdown in Foxboro.

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) says the chances he suits up against the Patriots this weekend are "looking good."

Mangold was a limited participant in Jets practice Wednesday, and said he felt as good as he has since going down in Week 2. If he's able to put in a full practice either Thursday or Friday, it will be a pretty good sign he's going to take the field this weekend. His status will be updated Thursday.

Jets C Nick Mangold (ankle) was in pads and doing drills with the first-team offense Wednesday.

It's Patriots week, so Mangold is going to push his high-ankle sprain as hard he can. Offensive linemen can play through the injury much easier than skill players, so there's certainly a chance Mangold suits up Sunday. The Jets' entire offense has been affected by his absence.
Wed, Oct 5, 2011 12:25:00 PM

Jets coach Rex Ryan "didn't sound overly optimistic" on Nick Mangold's (ankle) status Monday.

If you saw the tape of Mangold working out before Sunday night's loss to the Ravens, you wouldn't be optimistic either. The All-Pro center was limping through drills and grimacing in pain. He may try to gut it out this week out of desperation, but Mangold would likely be far from 100 percent against the Patriots.
