Neville Hewitt Fantasy Football News 2019

Jets ILB Neville Hewitt is doubtful once again for Sunday's game against the Jets. Hewitt missed the past 3 contests and has been putting in limited practices for a while. In his absence, James Burgess and Brandon Copeland figure to start again. Both guys played 100% of the snaps in last week's loss to the Dolphins. CB Darryl Roberts is also doubtful with a calf injury he suffered during practice this week.

Jets LB Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) took part in a limited practice Wednesday. That's an improvement over last week, when he sat out Wednesday and Thursday before a limited Friday workout. Hewitt hit that weekend "doubtful" and was inactive vs. the Dolphins. He spent the previous week putting in limited practices, though, before sitting out that game. So we'll need to watch Hewitt through the week to see if he can get back for Sunday's clash with the Dolphins. If Hewitt plays, he'd likely push Brandon Copeland back out of the lineup.

Jets LB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. The team will also miss LB Blake Cashman, who landed on IR this week with a shoulder injury. With those 2 out, plus LBs Avery Williamson and Albert McClellan on IR and C.J. Mosley out at least another month, James Burgess will start against Miami. The Jets also signed LB Zach Brown, who got dumped by the Eagles after their Week 6 loss at Minnesota. We've added Burgess to the Week 9 IDP rankings.

Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that ILB C.J. Mosley will miss the next 5-6 weeks with his groin injury, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. The report added, "No surgery for now." That implies surgery remains an option. If the Jets continue to disappoint over the next 5-6 weeks, then they and Mosley might decide it's not worth bringing him back this season. Mosley looks droppable for most redraft IDP leagues. Rookie Blake Cashman should maintain his starting role for at least those 5-6 weeks. ILB Neville Hewitt (neck, knee) missed Week 8 but took part in limited practices all last week and seems to be nearing a return. We'll watch his status leading up to Sunday's visit to Miami.

The Jets have ruled ILB C.J. Mosley (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Fellow ILB Neville Hewitt (neck) is doubtful for the game. The Jets will also be without backup ILB Albert McClellan, who has been ruled out with a concussion. Rookie Blake Cashman will start, and OLB Brandon Copeland will slide in to start next to him, according to the New York Post. Cashman is usable in IDP lineups.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley left Monday night's loss to the Patriots in the 4th quarter, still feeling the effects of his Week 1 groin injury. And then he wasn't on the field for Wednesday's practice. "The doctors are doing a really deep dive, trying to figure out where things are coming from," HC Adam Gase said before practice, according to the team website. "It might just be more than a groin. We're just trying to figure all that stuff out." It doesn't sound like we should count on Mosley being available for Week 8. That would mean another start for rookie Blake Cashman -- and maybe more. Neville Hewitt (neck, knee), who missed Monday night's game, returned to a limited workout Wednesday. We'll see if Hewitt can make it back to face Jacksonville on Sunday.

Jets ILB Neville Hewitt is doubtful for Monday night's game against the Patriots. That should mean a 5th straight starter-level appearance for reserve LB Blake Cashman. ILB C.J. Mosley is officially questionable, though he said earlier in the week that he expects to finally return from the Week 1 groin injury that cost him the past 4 games.

Jets LB Neville Hewitt sat out Thursday's practice, listed with both neck and knee ailments. Both injuries are new. Hewitt left Sunday's win over the Cowboys for a stretch but returned to finish the game. We'll see about his status heading toward Monday night's clash with the Patriots.
