The New York Jets have released their updated injury report + why linebacker CJ Mosley could return this season. Here are all the details.

The New York Jets, unlike any team in football, is battered, bruised, and beaten at this point in the season.

One of their prized acquisitions in the offseason was linebacker CJ Mosley. He has yet to play a full game this season, but there’s optimism that he could return before the year is up.

Brian Costello of the New York Post spoke to Mosley who indicated he has already started running and he “hopes to increase his workload next week.”

Although he won’t be playing vs the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, he was the only player ruled out by the team ahead of the matchup.

Darryl Roberts is officially listed as doubtful, but will not be playing. This means the team will go with Bless Austin and Arthur Maulet as their starters at corner.

Both tackles will likely play in this one on the offensive side of the ball with Kelvin Beachum at left tackle and Chuma Edoga at right tackle.

Eight players are listed as questionable on the injury report including the two tackles:

  • Henry Anderson, defensive lineman
  • Brandon Copeland, linebacker
  • Neville Hewitt, linebacker
  • Steve McLendon, defensive lineman
  • Alex Lewis, guard
  • Demaryius Thomas, wide receiver

The New York Jets have very slim hopes at the playoffs. According to the NFL Playoff Picture, the Jets are the 14th seed, and there are only six seeds that make it to the postseason. But if they’re going to make it, they have zero margins for error at 3-7.

While on the other side of the coin, the Oakland Raiders are 6-4 and if the playoffs started today, they’d be in the playoffs as the sixth seed.
