flgreen Posted August 12, 2011 Share Posted August 12, 2011 Nick Mangold injures his neck Friday, August 12, 2011 The Record Print | E-mail Mangold injures neck Center Nick Mangold suffered a neck stinger in a goal-line drill during the Jets’ afternoon practice Thursday. The Jets are listing him as day to day. The drill, which features hitting and tackling for everyone except the quarterbacks, ended with running back Shonn Greene leaping across the goal line and over a pile of players. Mangold stayed down for several minutes on his hands and knees and was attended to by trainers before he finally got up and walked gingerly to the building to be examined. Mangold did not return, and was replaced by Rob Turner. Vladimir Ducasse took over at right guard, which was where Turner had been playing. Starting right guard Brandon Moore (off-season hip surgery) hasn’t begun practicing. Wide receiver Plaxico Burress (ankle) was excused from the morning walkthrough for personal reasons, and did some very light individual work in the afternoon. He didn’t take part in team drills, even though coach Rex Ryan indicated he expects Burress to play a little in the preseason opener at Houston on Monday. Cole returns Third-year cornerback Marquice Cole practiced Thursday for the first time this month, having missed all of training camp until now because of a family matter. Cole returned to the Jets’ complex Wednesday, a day off for the players. "I had to take care of some stuff, but it’s great to be back," Cole said, although he admitted it won’t be easy compensating for lost time. "To miss those days," he said, "nothing will make up for that. I just have to go out here and do a little extra to try to get back and [be] ready." Briefs Wyckoff native Brian Toal caught a touchdown pass from rookie Greg McElroy and had a nice block to help spring Chris Jennings for a scoring run during the third-string goal-line drill. Toal, one of only two fullbacks in camp, is working with the second and third teams. … The Jets waived S DaJuan Morgan, who has played in 30 NFL games over the past three seasons with Indianapolis and Kansas City. He had been signed Aug. 2. — J.P. Pelzman Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
