Mangold (ankle) will not require surgery, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Mangold was only able to play eight games in 2016 before being placed on injured reserve. The center has been a cornerstone of the Jets' offensive line for 11 years now but may be asked to walk before training camp starts, as he's scheduled to earn $9.075 million this coming year, including a $2.4 million bonus due at training camp. The Jets will need to decide if Mangold's injury-riddled 2016 is worth the financial risk of keeping him on for the coming season, or if he is worth letting go, which the team recently did with veteran tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder).
Mangold (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Randy Lange of the team's official site reports.
Mangold missed only four games through the first 10 seasons of his career, cementing himself as the cornerstone of the Jets' offensive line for a decade. However, his 11th season has been a different beast and will promptly come to an early end as he lands on the IR. The center has already missed four games this season after injuring his ankle in a Week 7 win over the Ravens. Wesley Johnson will continue to start at center with Mangold lost for the remainder of the season.
Mangold reinjured his ankle during Monday's game against the Colts, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
It remains unclear just how severe the issue is this time around, although he missed nearly a month of the season before finally being activated Monday.
Mangold logged his first full practice in over a month Thursday and followed it up with another pair of uninhibited sessions Friday and Saturday. Thus, he appears in full health and appears set to play Monday night.
Mangold (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Connor Hughes of NJ.com reports.
Thursday marks the center's first full practice in over a month, as he has missed the past four games due to an ankle injury. Barring any major setbacks the rest of the week, it seems likely that Mangold could resume his role as starting center this Monday against the Colts. Head coach Todd Bowles said of the situation, "He's taking reps. We'll see how he feels at the end of the week."
