Mangini won't rule Franks out

Eric Mangini hasn't ruled Bubba Franks out for Sunday yet.

The tight end, who was not on the field for the first half hour of Friday's practice, left the Oakland game last Sunday with what the Jets are saying is hip injury. He never returned. It's possibly a groin injury. The Jets don't list groin injuries.

If Franks can't play, the Jets will be very thin at tight end with just Chris Baker and Dustin Keller. However, fullback Tony Richardson could probably be an emergency tight end, or the Jets could just one tight end sets.

If Franks is out for a while, the Jets could always bring back Jason Pociask or elevate Brad Listorti from their practice squad.
