New York Jets rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders was hospitalized Friday after a single-car accident on his way to the practice facility, the team announced.
Saunders was taken to a hospital and was being monitored there as a precaution. He will not travel to Cincinnati with the team and is out for Saturday night's game against the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.
The 5-foot-9 Saunders saw action both in the offense and on special teams in the preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts at MetLife Stadium. He had one reception for 1 yard on offense and he returned two punts for 11 yards.
