Governor Sahin confirmed one person was "seriously injured" as a result of "a motorbike with a bomb being detonated". Witnesses also said one vehicle was seriously damaged, raising the prospect that it was a auto bomb attack, CNN-Turk said.

Images broadcast on Turkish television showed wrecked cars and shattered glass from building and vehicle windows in the street outside the police station, which local media reports said was the most likely target of the attack.

A bomb placed on a motorcycle has exploded near a police station Thursday, wounding several people, Vasip Sahin, the governor for Istanbul, said.

Wide receiver Jalin Marshall returned to practice in a limited role Thursday after missing last week with a labrum injury. Tight end Braedon Bowman and quarterback Bryce Petty also did not practice on Wednesday and their status is now unknown.

Cars near the scene appeared to be badly damaged by the blast. There was no immediate indication who could be behind the latest blast. Kurdish militants have twice struck in Ankara in deadly attacks, while suspected Islamic State (IS) suicide bombers have on three occasions struck in Istanbul.

The police station, located near a busy intersection in one of the city's most populated districts, was also attacked in 2012 by two assailants who opened fire on security personnel in the building, injuring one police officer.

A suspected motorcycle bomb has gone off in Turkey near Istanbul's Ataturk Airport.
