The Jets have ruled out starting cornerback Trumaine Johnson and center Ryan Kalil for the team's Week 9 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Johnson suffered an ankle injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 8 and has not practiced all week. While Kalil is dealing with knee and elbow injuries, and has not practiced all week as well. He played just 26 snaps (43 percent) in Week 7 and 32 snaps (55 percent) in Week 8 after playing in almost every one of the Jets offensive snaps through the first six weeks of the season.

C.J. Mosley is expected to miss 5-6 weeks with a groin injury, while wide receiver Josh Bellamy (foot and shoulder) and safety Rontez Miles (neck and hip) were also ruled out for Week 9.

Jets dejected after 29-15 loss 00:01:46
Adam Gase, Sam Darnold and Jamal Adams were all very honest after the team fell to 1-6 this season. Gase says no one can change it but them

Sam Darnold may not have been seeing ghosts this time, but he had plenty of reasons to be scared.

The Jets' offensive line was atrocious, again, in the Jets' 29-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Darnold was constantly on the run, was sacked eight times, and they weren't much better in the running game where Le'Veon Bell barely had any room to run.

The result was another offensive disaster. The Jets scored on a 93-yard drive on their opening possession - their first opening-drive touchdown in 31 tries. The rest of the game they only had 120 more yards for a pathetic total of 213.

It's a mess.

The injury issues that have surrounded C.J. Mosley since Week 1 continued Wednesday at One Jets Drive, when Adam Gase said Mosley's injury could be more involved than initially thought.

The tests are continuing, Gase explained. 

"Doctors are doing a really deep dive just trying to figure out where things are coming from," he said. "Might just be more than the groin. We're just trying to figure all that stuff out."

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

Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive

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.

To practice or to not? 00:00:58
Jeane Coakley and Connor Hughes weigh the pros and cons of the Jets not practicing on their bye week. Some are surprised they're not at 0-3.

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.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Chicago Bears didn't play a single starter against the Giants on Friday night and Mitch Trubisky and Khalil Mack probably won't play this preseason at all. It's the same in L.A., with Jared Goff and Todd Gurley. Saquon Barkley probably won't play this summer either, and Le'Veon Bell has already been ruled out.

A decade ago - less, even - such a mass sit-out would have been unthinkable in the preseason. Players played in increasing amounts in at least the first three games. Coaches felt they had to, in order to get ready for the regular season.

So what happened?

Jets head coach Adam Gase had a simple, three-word response when asked if he regretted leaving in Avery Williamson as long as he did in Thursday's preseason win over the Falcons.

"Yes, I do."

After three preseason games, now is a good time to assess who has played well enough to improve their chances of a role during the regular season, and whose struggles have put their spot in jeopardy.

We've identified five winners and five losers from the first three games...
