New York Jets cen­ter Nick Man­gold is doubt­ful to play Sun­day against the Cleve­land Browns be­cause of a sprained an­kle.

Man­gold has missed just four games in his 11-year ca­reer, but it ap­pears likely he’ll have to sit this one out. His right an­kle was heav­ily taped on Thurs­day, and he didn’t prac­tice all week.

Wes­ley John­son would likely re­place Man­gold, as he did af­ter the cen­ter was in­jured early in the first quar­ter of New York’s 24-16 win over Bal­ti­more last Sun­day.

Left tackle Ryan Clady (shoul­der) and de­fen­sive end Muham­mad Wilk­er­son (an­kle) are ques­tion­able. Cor­ner­back Buster Skrine (knee) is doubt­ful.

Coach Todd Bowles said Fri­day that Ben Ijalana would slide from right tackle to left tackle if Clady can’t go. The Jets would also con­sider ac­ti­vat­ing Breno Gi­a­co­mini from re­serve-phys­i­cally un­able to per­form to play right tackle.
