FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets center Nick Mangold is doubtful to play Sunday at Miami because of a sprained ankle that also sidelined him last weekend.

Mangold, who has missed just five games in his NFL career, will likely be replaced again by Wesley Johnson.

The Jets are banged up at offensive tackle with left tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder) and right tackle Breno Giacomini (shoulder) questionable, and backup Brent Qvale (neck) doubtful. Coach Todd Bowles says Giacomini is “doing more” than Clady, but both will likely be game-time decisions.

Tight end Kellen Davis (elbow) and linebackers Darron Lee (ankle) and Bruce Carter (quadriceps) have been ruled out.

Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson returned to practice on a limited basis Friday but is questionable with a sore ankle.

Rookie offensive lineman Brandon Shell tweaked a shoulder during team drills Friday and also is questionable.
