The Jets received good news regarding the injury to running back Michael Carter, who left Sunday’s win over the Bears with a lower-body injury.
Head coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Carter only has a low-ankle sprain and is considered “day-to-day” and has a chance to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Low-ankle sprains are obviously better than high-ankle sprains. Had that been the case, Carter would likely have been out for at least a month.
The Jets were able to see Sunday that they have running backs that can hold the fort while Carter is out. Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight combined for 131 rushing yards on 19 attempts helping lead the Jets to a 31-10 win over the Chicago Bears.
Other injury updates from Monday include linebacker Chazz Surratt (hamstring), Ashtyn Davis (hamstring) and Cedric Ogbuehi (groin) all being questionable for the week and day-to-day, similar to Carter.
The Jets will have more information on all these players Wednesday.
