Jets' Saunders waiting for answers about health

The Associated Press

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets rookie wide receiver Jalen Saunders says he's still uncertain what happened to him last Friday when he drove his car off the road after a "medical event."

Saunders, speaking publicly Wednesday about the incident for the first time, declined to go into detail about his "shocking situation" as he drove to the team's practice facility that morning. He is awaiting results from doctors, but says his condition was not pre-existing.

Saunders also says he never lost consciousness. He was taken to a hospital and treated for two days before being released Sunday.

Saunders, a fourth-round pick from Oklahoma, re-joined the team earlier this week but has not practiced. Doctors have not provided a timetable for when Saunders might be able to return to the field.
