The Jets' offensive line takes a big hit with two men almost certain to be out (Qvale, Mangold) and three others injured. Wesley Johnson figures to play for Mangold and he's done OK. This is a key spot to watch, though, with the Jets expected to lean on their running game as they have the last two weeks.
A very underrated loss is Lee, because his sideline-to-sideline speed could've been useful against Dolphins RB Jay Ajayi. No, he's not the biggest linebacker and he can get muscled out a bit in the run game, but just in case Ajayi breaks through his speed could have helped.
The only other key injury is to Wilkerson, who should play but will likely be at least a bit limited. That's not an issue with Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams more than able to pick up the slack. In fact, it might be better without him because it will keep everyone at their natural positions for most of the time.
