FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- As Thanksgiving Day approaches, Jets fans can give thanks that center Nick Mangold's wrist injury doesn't appear to be serious.
Mangold said his wrist injury was the result of "wear and tear," and that it might take him out of practice but not of a game.
"I think those guys get beat up all the time," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. "I don't know the extent. He was limited today but we expect him to play."
Mangold said going forward he might have a lighter load in practice so that his wrist can get the rest it needs, guaranteeing backup center Caleb Schlauderaff a spot on the team for the rest of another reason.
Did not practice: CB Antonio Cromartie (hip).
Out: T Jonathan Martin (illness).
