FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has practiced fully for the first time since spraining his left knee, while center Nick Mangold sat out again with a sprained right ankle and appears unlikely to play against New England on Sunday.
Fitzpatrick was hurt at Miami on Nov. 6 and Bryce Petty started in his place against Los Angeles on Nov. 13. Coach Todd Bowles announced Monday that Fitzpatrick was healthy and would start against the Patriots.
Mangold has been sidelined for three games, but Bowles says Wednesday that the center is out of his walking boot. Bowles says placing Mangold on season-ending injured reserve isn't yet being discussed, but the coach also didn't rule it out.
