FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets center Nick Mangold is doubtful to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns because of a sprained ankle.
Mangold has missed just four games in his 11-year career, but it appears likely he’ll have to sit this one out. His right ankle was heavily taped Thursday, and he didn’t practice all week.READ MORE: Times Square Shooting: Intense Manhunt Continues; Sources Say Shooter Known To Police For Illegal Vending In Area

Coach Todd Bowles said Friday that Ben Ijalana would slide from right tackle to left tackle if Clady can’t go. The Jets would also consider activating Breno Giacomini from reserve-physically unable to perform to play right tackle.
Linebackers Darron Lee (ankle) and Bruce Carter (quadriceps) were ruled out Thursday. Offensive lineman Brent Qvale is doubtful with a neck injury.
