The Jets took a step in the right direction as quarterback Sam Darnold returned to practice Wednesday, but New York's injury report remained cluttered with key players on both sides.

While the Jets' starter recovers from mononucleosis with an eye on a return at some point in October as the day-to-day recovery continues, linebackers CJ Mosley (groin) and Jordan Jenkins (calf) were among those held out.

While neither Darnold nor Mosley has not played since Sept. 8's 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills in the season opener, Jenkins missed Sept. 22's 30-14 loss to the New England Patriots.

With the Jets on their bye week, we've been reviewing 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're looking at a mixture of players who've exceeded expectations and that have been disappointing so far. We continue today with a look at nickel back Brian Poole.

Gase talks preparing for Foxboro 00:02:19
Jeane Coakley spoke to Adam Gase before the team heads to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots with their third string QB.

Four days after the Jets fell to 0-2 on Monday's 23-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns, New York's quick turnaround for Sunday's 1 p.m. road game against the Patriots presents the latest challenge for Adam Gase.

Before Friday's practice at The Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park, New Jersey, the first-year head coach issued several injury updates ahead of the weekend's preparation for New England (2-0).

Among the notables, the Jets remain without veteran linebacker C.J. Mosley, but rookie defensive tackle Quinnen Williams continues to progress as Week 3 approaches.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The Jets knew the cornerback position was their biggest flaw, even before Trumaine Johnson injured his hamstring at practice on Sunday. They were shorthanded from the start at one of the most important positions in football.

Now, with Johnson out for the foreseeable future -- "I don't think it's going to be months," Adam Gase said, "but I mean, we'll see." -- the situation is dire.

Already thin at cornerback, the Jets suffered another blow within the position group Sunday.

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson injured his hamstring, head coach Adam Gase told reporters following practice, after intercepting quarterback Sam Darnold and running it back.

Johnson, who battled a quad injury in 2018 on the way to 10 appearances 40 tackles and four interceptions, is out indefinitely.

The Jets announced Wednesday that cornerback Brian Poole has been added to the Active/Non-Football Injury list. This means they are a man down in the secondary for Thursday morning's practice and will continue to be until he's reactivated.

Listing him in that way doesn't save the Jets a roster spot and he can be activated at any time, as soon as he's ready to practice. It's merely a precautionary measure against him suffering further setbacks and remaining out for an extended time. Since Poole evidently showed up with the injury rather than suffering it during organized team activities, the team could in theory part ways with Poole in such a scenario without being on the hook for his salary. 
 
The reality is that this likely isn't particularly serious and the Jets could see Poole back soon. However, even if he returns within the next few days, he will have lost ground in the battle to earn the nickelback role he's been projected to win since the Jets signed him to a one-year, $3 million deal back in March.
