Possible Mosley return? 00:01:04
Jets Head Coach Adam Gase on whether linebacker C.J. Mosley is ready to return to action after a groin injury

The worst thing that happened to the Jets early in the season was losing franchise quarterback Sam Darnold.

Losing C.J. Mosley, though, was a pretty close second.

The impact of playing without Mosley for the last four-plus games maybe isn't as obvious as the impact of three games without Darnold, especially since the defense has managed to survive -- and sometimes even thrive -- in his absence. But the Jets don't underestimate how much their defensive captain means to them, and how huge it would be if he would somehow be able to get back in time for their Monday night game against the New England Patriots.

With the Jets on their bye week, we're going to review some of the Jets players, looking in detail at their season so far and what to expect from them coming out of the bye week. We'll look at some players who've exceeded expectations and others that have been disappointing so far. We begin with a look at rookie linebacker Blake Cashman.

Expectations prior to the season

When Cashman was drafted in the fifth round back in April, the Jets still had both Darron Lee and Avery Williamson in addition to new addition CJ Mosley, so Cashman wasn't expected to have a major role on defense. Nevertheless, it seemed like a shrewd pick to draft the promising former Minnesota Golden Gopher, who had outstanding special teams production in college and the potential to be a future starter.

The Jets are fortunate to be getting such an early bye this season, as they have a lot to work on. With a mixture of unavoidable misfortune and self-inflicted wounds, their nightmare start to the season has them at 0-3 for the first time since 2003. Here's the main things they need to do to right the ship:

Re-assimilating players returning from injury

The good news from Sunday's game was the Jets didn't have any additional injuries to key contributors. While they can't use injuries as an excuse for all their problems, some of the core players set to return after the bye should provide an instant remedy in certain areas.

There's been nothing predictable about the Jets' season so far -- until now.

With three key defensive players out and a third-string quarterback who was on the practice squad having never played in an NFL game this time last week, the widely anticipated Patriots blowout was exactly what we saw on Sunday afternoon.

It didn't take long for any lingering hopes that the Jets might step up to make the game competitive against all odds to evaporate altogether, as Tom Brady drove the Patriots down the field for a touchdown on each of their first three drives. This gave New England a 20-point lead early in the second quarter.

Traditionally, starters and veteran contributors don't tend to play much in the first preseason game, so while Thursday night's game will give Jets fans their first look at players like Jamison Crowder and CJ Mosley, those players might only be in for a couple of series. Players like Le'Veon Bell and Ryan Kalil may not even suit up.

However, we should get an extended look at plenty of future contributors or players competing for a role this year. Let's focus on the young players it will be most interesting to pay attention to:

Based on reports from Thursday's practice, linebacker Blake Cashman got plenty of work with the first unit. Could this be a sign that the rookie has a realistic shot at earning a regular role on defense during the 2019 season?

Cashman had already made an impact in the spring, including an interception of quarterback Trevor Siemian during one of the OTA practices that was open to the media in May.

Prior to the draft in April, a few scouting reports characterized Cashman as athletically limited, but his film seems to suggest otherwise, and his combine workout numbers were outstanding. The main concern with him is that he has extremely short arms, but this would be less of an impediment to his ability to succeed if he's playing in space, so hopefully this wouldn't be a major issue in a coverage role.
