The New York Jets provided a grim updated injury report. Here’s why that’s bad news for linebacker CJ Mosley and center Ryan Kalil.
As if things weren’t bad enough for the New York Jets, things just got slightly worse.
On Monday Jets head coach Adam Gase provided an updated injury report that featured a lot of big names with not a lot of positive thoughts.
Linebacker CJ Mosley is now on the shelf for the next 5-6 weeks. This means on this timeline, he’s projected to be back for either Week 14 or Week 15. With the Jets at 1-6, perhaps it’s just better to call this thing a wash and put him on injured reserve so the team can have an extra roster spot and you can guarantee he’ll be 100 percent for 2020.
Sadly that wasn’t the only bad news the Jets received on the injury front, the other big news is starting center Ryan Kalil is now considered week-to-week with a knee injury. Although to be honest, Kalil hasn’t played well so maybe this will work out for the team.
The guy he’s been snapping the ball to is also hurt. Sam Darnold who came back from mono, had a toenail removed after the New England Patriots game that required additional padding in the foot area is now dealing with an additional injury.
Darnold sprained his left thumb vs the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Gase said he’ll be able to play through it and Sam confirmed as much telling the media that it’s a “pain tolerance thing and he should be good to go.”
Chris Herndon who hasn’t played a snap for the 2019 Jets to date thanks to a four-game suspension and a troublesome hamstring injury he suffered on his own time is “progressing well” and could make his season debut on Sunday vs the Miami Dolphins.
While finally starting left tackle Kelvin Beachum has missed the last two weeks due to an ankle injury, but “will try to go this week.”
