New York Jets linebacker CJ Mosley may be done for the season. Here are all the details and an ominous Adam Gase update from his presser.
A bad season just continues to get worse for the New York Jets.
Mosley was injured during the second half of the season opener vs the Buffalo Bills with a groin injury.
He then missed the next month attempting to rehab from the injury. Although weirdly Mosley seemed like he would return following the Week 4 bye, then Gase was suddenly pessimistic about the idea.
Then CJ cleared himself to play ahead of the Monday Night Football matchup vs the New England Patriots.
This is not the real C.J. Mosley.
His groin is clearly still bothering him. Watch him (57) on Michel’s TD on the first drive. No burst in pursuit. pic.twitter.com/MTFH3ky4jP

Which led to arguably the quote of the year from coach Gase that the team would be doing a ‘deep dive’ into his injury and that they now believe there’s even more wrong with him than they originally anticipated.
On Friday he was officially ruled out by the team ahead of their road trip vs the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Gase would not rule out placing CJ Mosley on injured reserve which would officially end his 2019 season. The team will know more on this situation next week.
Matt Stypulkoski of NJ Advanced Media said “it’d be a mild surprise” if Mosley plays again this season.
The Jets medical staff and evaluation of injuries have come under harsh criticism from the Kelechi Osemele situation.
With Mosley out and their backup Neville Hewitt’s status uncertain, the team will have to turn to Blake Cashman and likely Brandon Copeland at inside linebacker. Also, look for the Jets to make a move from their practice squad with either James Burgess or Frankie Luvu being activated for depth purposes. The New York Jets will face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
