Jets first-rounder Darron Lee (ankle) out vs. Ravens
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets rookie linebacker Darron Lee will not play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday because of a sprained ankle.
Lee, the team’s first-round draft pick in April, is the Jets’ leading tackler with 34. He was hurt during the third quarter of New York’s 28-3 loss at Arizona on Monday night.
Coach Todd Bowles has already ruled him out for this week, saying Thursday that he’s hoping the injury won’t keep Lee sidelined for multiple weeks.
Julian Stanford could be promoted from the practice squad to help replace Lee on the active roster.
Tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle), offensive lineman Brent Qvale (neck), tight end Braedon Bowman (knee) and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (personal matter) all sat out practice.
Left tackle Ryan Clady (shoulder), center Nick Mangold (knee) and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle) were limited after not practicing Wednesday.
