Team trying to figure out Mosley's injury | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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 C.J. Mosley has opted out for the upcoming season, according to multiple reports. That removes the Jets' big free-agent addition from last offseason for the 2nd straight year. Mosley missed basically all of 2019 after suffering a groin injury in the 1st half of the opener. The defense does get back ILB Avery Williamson from the ACL tear that cost him last season. Neville Hewitt, Blake Cashman and offseason addition Patrick Onwuasor figure to compete for Mosley's role. Williamson gets a big boost to his fantasy ceiling. He finished top 15 among fantasy LBs in 2018 and certainly has that potential again.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley tells ESPN's Rich Cimini that he's getting close to full strength in his return from groin surgery and that he should be ready by training camp. “I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent,” Mosley said. “I haven’t made those (cutting) movements, but I feel good. Mentally and physically, I feel great. It’s just a matter of getting on the field and doing it.” Mosley reportedly was on track to participate in offseason workouts, had those occurred. We'll certainly track him through the summer, but expect him to get back to being an IDP factor after missing basically all of his 1st Jets season.

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.

Jets LB C.J. Mosley is active for tonight's game against the Patriots. He has been out since leaving the Week 1 loss to the Bills with a groin injury. Mosley returns to a lineup that will not include fellow ILB Neville Hewitt, who is out with neck and knee injuries.

The Jets officially listed LB C.J. Mosley as not participating in practice Thursday. But the veteran LB took part in individual drills, according to multiple reports. Afterward, per The Associated Press, he declared: "I'm playing Monday night. Unless I get hurt or something, I'm playing." Mosley hasn't hit the field since leaving Week 1 with a groin injury. Returning Monday night would pit him against a Patriots offense that has been a tackle-heavy top-10 scoring matchup for fantasy LBs so far. We'll continue to watch Mosley's participation through the weekend to gauge the risk for IDP lineups.
