Fourth-round rookie and former Sooner Jalen Saunders, who is working both at wide receiver and punt returner for the New York Jets, was involved in a single-car accident this morning on his way to the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center.

Saunders was taken to a hospital and is 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.

Saunders saw action both in the offense and on special teams in our preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts at MetLife Stadium. (New York Jets Blog)
