FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - New York Jets rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders was involved in a single-car accident early Friday and hospitalized.
The team announced Saunders, a fourth-round pick, was on his way to the Jets' practice facility at the time of the accident. There was no immediate word on Saunders' condition, but the Jets say he won't travel with the team for their preseason game at Cincinnati on Saturday night.
The team did not release additional details of the accident.
The speedy Saunders, the 104th pick overall out of Oklahoma, is expected to compete for a role as a backup receiver and punt returner. He returned two punts for 11 yards in the preseason opener against Indianapolis last week.
