Josh Alper of NBCSports reports that New York Jets center Nick Mangold, left Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with an apparent elbow injury.  Mangold injured his elbow while pass blocking when Jets running back Tommy Bahanon inadvertently whacked into Mangold’s elbow. Mangold would later return to the sidelines and the game to participate in a gift victory for the Jets.  Back-up center, Caleb Schlauderaff, subbed in until the burly Pro Bowler returned.  Mangold is a solid center and the Jets best offensive lineman.  He is also durable.  In his eight seasons with the Jets, Mangold has started all but two regular season games.  Losing Mangold for any amount of time would be a disaster for the Jets.  Their running back group is weak at best and their rookie quarterback, Geno Smith, needs all the stability he can muster with the Patriots coming up in the shortened week. As of now, the seriousness of Mangold’s injury is unknown.  However, with the short week, we will know soon enough. In other Jets’ roster moves, the Gang Green re-signed QB Brady Quinn and kindly told linebacker, Danny Lansaha, to go agitate the gravel.  In addition, the practice squad got some new meat with the addition of wide receiver, Rahsaan Vaughn.  The Jets have also officially announced rookie quarterback, Geno Smith, will get the start against AFC East rival New England on Thursday night.   You can follow me on twitter @TheSoftParade69 Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.

Jets DE Mo Wilkerson: I don’t see why we won’t beat the Patriots
