Jets rookie receiver Jalen Saunders, the team's fourth-round draft pick, was in a car accident on the way to the team facility on Friday morning, and he was "taken to the hospital and is being monitored as a precaution," the team announced.

Not surprisingly, the Jets also said he won't travel to Cincinnati for the team's preseason game vs. the Bengals on Saturday.

Saunders wasn't expected to have much of an impact on the wide receiving corps this season, but the former Oklahoma standout was looking good to make the squad as a punt returner.
