New York Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he doesn't have an idea of when center Nick Mangold will return from his ankle injury that has kept him out for the past three games, according to the New York Post's Brian Costello.
Mangold, 32, did not practice Wednesday and has missed three games in a row for the first time in his career. He has been in and out of a walking boot for the past few weeks, which has clouded Bowles' idea of when he may return.
"For me, if you're not practicing, you're not improving," Bowles said. "I haven't seen him run yet ... he's not doing anything that I see."
Mangold suffered an ankle sprain when tackle Ryan Clady rolled up on his leg in the Jets-Ravens game on Oct. 23.
The Jets have not discussed surgery nor considered placing Mangold on injured reserve, according to Bowles, and the team is taking the situation "day by day."
A seven-time Pro Bowler, Mangold missed four games from 2006 to 2015.
