The Jets entered Sunday's game against the Patriots with LB C.J. Mosley (hamstring) inactive and Jarrad Davis (ankle) not yet back from IR. The defense then watched LBs Jamien Sherwood (calf), Quincy Williams (concussion) and Blake Cashman (groin) leave the game. We'll have to watch the whole situation to see who's in for next Sunday's game against the Bengals. If healthy, Mosley should remain a full-time starter. Davis' return would complicate the outlook for Williams, though.

As expected, Jets LB C.J. Mosley is inactive for today's game against the Patriots. He hit the weekend doubtful after missing practice all week with a hamstring injury. There was at least 1 beat report that called him a game-time decision this morning, but we removed the LB from our Week 7 rankings Friday night. Expect Quincy Williams to lead Jets LBs today.

Jets S Marcus Maye looks ready to go for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He sat out the past 2 games with an ankle injury but returned to practice coming off the bye. He finished the week with 2 full workouts and carries no injury status into the game. We've had Maye high in our Week 7 DB rankings in anticipation of his return.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Patriots with a hamstring injury. His absence could push Del'Shawn Phillips into starting duty. Quincy Williams is the only Jets LB we're looking to use in IDP lineups this week, though.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley missed practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury. HC Robert Saleh told the team website that he hopes Mosley will be able to play Sunday against the Patriots. We'll keep an eye on the veteran's status throughout the week. Elsewhere on the defense: The Jets don't expect to activate LB Jarrad Davis (ankle) off IR this week. That keeps Quincy Williams in the starting lineup and an upside spot for tackle collection. S Marcus Maye returned to practice Wednesday after missing the past 2 games with an ankle injury. it's not yet clear, though, whether he'll be ready for Sunday's game, according to the team website.

Jets HC Robert Saleh said Monday that it the chance he gets S Marcus Maye and LB Jarrad Davis back for Sunday's game against the Patriots "looks promising." Maye missed the past 2 games with an ankle injury. Davis has been on IR since the start of the season following an August ankle injury. We'll keep an eye on their statuses this week. Maye was a full-timer through the 1st 3 weeks and would be a risk/reward IDP option if he's in the Week 7 lineup. We'd try not to use Davis in what will be his 1st game with the Jets.

Jets HC Robert Saleh says he hopes to get LB Jarrad Davis back from IR after the Week 6 bye. Davis has been out since the preseason with an ankle injury. He was wearing the green dot and calling defensive plays before he went down, though. We'll see whether Davis can reclaim his job from Quincy Williams upon return.

Jets S Marcus Maye is expected to miss the next 3-4 weeks with an ankle injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jarrod Wilson looks like the next man up, though the Jets are also getting S Ashtyn Davis back from IR this week. We'll see about the replacement plan at safety.

Jets DE John Franklin-Myers is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Broncos with a calf injury. He progressed from no practice Wednesday to a limited Thursday and then full participation Friday. We’ll check his status Sunday afternoon.

The Jets on Sunday sent a late-round draft pick to the Texans for DE Shaq Lawson. It’s a sensible move for a team that has lost DE Carl Lawson and DE Vinny Curry for the season. Shaq Lawson, though, has already washed out with 3 NFL teams: the Bills, who drafted him; the Dolphins, who signed him for big free-agent money; and the Texans, who traded (minimal value) for him. Odds are against Lawson being an edge-rushing savior for either the Jets or IDP rosters.

Jets HC Robert Saleh told reporters Monday that LB Jarrad Davis will likely be out until sometime around the team's Week 6 bye with his ankle injury. Davis hurt the ankle in Saturday's preseason game, leaving the sideline on a cart. According to Connor Hughes of The Athletic, Saleh says rookie Jamien Sherwood will step into Davis' starting role. Davis had appeared to be on track for full or near-full playing time. If Sherwood can approximate that playing time, he could be an early-season steal in IDP leagues.

Jets DE Carl Lawson confirmed Thursday afternoon that he tore his left Achilles' tendon. That obviously means he'll miss this season, his 1st with the Jets after arriving in free agency. We'll see about Lawson next offseason, heading into his age-27 campaign. Expect Vinny Curry and John Franklin-Myers to run as the top 2 edge players for the Jets now.

Jets DE Carl Lawson left the practice field on a cart Thursday after suffering a left leg injury, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic. Hughes reports that "the entire field was silent when Lawson went down." That doesn't sound good for the 26-year-old big-money free-agent addition. We'll watch for a diagnosis. For now, don't draft Lawson in your IDP league.

Update: NFL Network is reporting that Lawson is getting an MRI on his left Achilles' tendon and that he felt a "pop" when he went down. We're removing him from the rankings for now, as we await a firm diagnosis.

The Jets have activated DT Quinnen Williams off the PUP. Williams opened training camp still working back from his offseason foot fracture. There's still time for him to round into shape before the Sept. 12 opener. We'll keep an eye out for any recurring or compensatory issues with Williams from here.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports that LB Jarrad Davis has been calling the defensive plays in the huddle at practice lately. "Obviously, it could change," Cimini notes. But it this holds, then it would signal a near full-time role for Davis. We wouldn't bet on him playing more than C.J. Mosley -- who beats Davis significantly in both talent and salary -- but that looks like the Jets' lead duo at the position. And defenses across the league lean more on alignments with 2 or even 1 off-ball LB. Davis carries late-sleeper potential for your IDP draft.

The Jets announced Friday that S Marcus Maye has opened training camp on the non-football injury list. DT Quinnen Williams landed on the active/PUP list. Williams' designation isn't surprising after his foot fracture in early May. It's not clear what Maye's issue is. We'll see how soon each starter gets activated.
