08/19/14 - WR Jalen Saunders attended Jets practice Monday but didn't participate. Saunders was in a car accident Friday morning after suffering a "medical event" while driving to the Jets' complex. He was hospitalized for two days. The Jets have yet to comment on Saunders but head coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Saunders would be made available to reporters later this week.
08/17/14 - WR Jalen Saunders didn't play Saturday after being hospitalized Friday morning for what was initially believed to be a car accident. However, NJ.com reported Saturday that Saunders suffered a "medical accident." He was still in the hospital as of Sunday. Head coach Rex Ryan had no update on Saunders following Saturday's game.
08/15/14 - WR 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.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Jets' picks: Round 4/104 -- Jalen Saunders, WR, 5-9, 165, Oklahoma...Another undersized prospect, Saunders may be too small to take over slot duties from Jeremy Kerley, whose contract expires after the upcoming season. But Saunders, who returned three punts for touchdowns at Oklahoma, should be the Jets' first true weapon in the return game since Joe McKnight. - The Sports Xchange
03/22/14 - 2014 Pro Days: Saunders stumbles, teammates healing at Oklahoma...Saunders, whose game is built on quickness and acceleration, was clocked at 4.42 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle, a surprisingly slow time that would have ranked 37th among the 39 wideouts who ran this event in Indianapolis. Similarly slow times came in the long shuttle (11.56) and 3-cone (7.29), results which also would have ranked among the slowest at the Combine among wide receivers. Only two receivers who participated in the 3-cone at the Combine recorded slower times than Saunders on Wednesday, in fact. Those two receivers were the 6-foot-5, 240 pound Kelvin Benjamin (Florida State) and the 6-foot-6, 225 pound Brandon Coleman (Rutgers). - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
