Jets head coach Adam Gase revealed some bad news on Monday, stating LB C.J. Mosley will miss about 5-6 weeks.
Gase added that Mosley "went to a specialist that he trusts," and the decision was to try to avoid surgery to fix the ailment. The 5-6 weeks timeframe is what the team is hopeful for, with Mosley having the chance to return toward the very end of the season.
This was expected from Mosley as he has been dealing with his groin injury that he sustained in Week 1, and hasn't been able to return to the field 100 percent. He tried against the Patriots last week, but he was noticeably not the same player the Jets saw in Week 1 before the injury.
"Seemed like every time he was on the ground, he'd get up and he just didn't seem comfortable," head coach Adam Gase said of Mosley on Wednesday. "So I was glad they pulled him out when they did. I didn't know what was wrong with him because all indications going into the game was he felt really good, especially watching him practice."
Mosley, who signed a five-year, $85 million deal as the Jets' largest free agent signee this offseason, missed only three games in his five seasons with the Ravens before this season. He has only played in two of the seven this year, and if surgery is suggested by the end of that recovery timeframe, it could be the only ones he plays in.
