Jets rookie Jamal Adams sprains ankle during practice

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) New York Jets rookie safety Jamal Adams sprained an ankle during practice and the severity of the injury was not immediately known - although it doesn't appear serious.

Coach Todd Bowles says Thursday that Adams, the team's first-round draft pick out of LSU, was hurt during 7-on-7 drills and held out for the remainder of practice. Adams remained on the field for the rest of the session and Bowles does not think the safety will need to have an MRI exam on the ankle.

About an hour after practice concluded, Adams wrote on Twitter : ''I'm okay. God is good.''

Adams is expected to start at safety along with second-rounder Marcus Maye, giving the Jets two rookie starters in the secondary.
