NEW YORK — Jets coach Todd Bowles was hospitalized Friday with what the team called an "undisclosed illness," and he did not travel for today's game at New England.
In a statement posted on the team's website, the Jets said Bowles was in stable condition.
Bowles, 53, fell ill early Friday afternoon and was taken to the hospital, where general manager Mike Maccagnan visited him. Maccagnan has remained in constant contact with Bowles, who wants to coach the game but will need to be cleared by doctors.
If Bowles is unavailable to coach, assistant head coach Mike Caldwell will fill in.
Also, Jets running back Matt Forte is doubtful to play because of knee and shoulder injuries.
