Jets LB C.J. Mosley ‘doubtful at best’ to play vs. Cowboys with lingering groin injury

New York Daily News Sports 2 months ago

C.J. Mosley might be inching toward a return from a nagging groin injury, but don’t expect him to play against the Cowboys on Sunday. Adam Gase said that the Pro Bowl linebacker is “doubtful at best” to face Dallas after hurting his groin in the season opener.

“We’re close,” Gase said Wednesday. “We did a deeper dive on that. Our expectations of him being able to get back sooner… I think he was on board with that. We all thought that was going to happen. I think the injury was a little more severe than obviously what any of us felt or what he felt. But we’re on the back end of this thing."

“It’s been a long time,” Gase added. “We’ve sent him everywhere and have gone through all the steps we need to go. And we have a good plan to get him back sooner than later. It was a little longer than any of us thought.”

Mosley recently admitted that the injury was higher in the groin area, which has slowed the recovery time. His change of direction and burst has taken the longest to recover from since getting hurt a month ago. Mosley will miss his fourth game after missing only three in the first five seasons of his career.

“His issue right now is really opening up,” Gase said. “When he’d be dropping in the middle of the field in Tampa-2 (defense), his pivot, burst and kind of that next stride. That’s where it’s been hard for him. So, we kind of took a different approach as far as the progression that they’re going through now. It’s looking better now with the closer we get to this thing being over.”

OLB Jordan Jenkins is expected to be limited in practice after missing the past two games with a calf injury … Left guard Kelechi Osemele (knee, shoulder, illness) missed practice after not playing last week … DL Henry Anderson (sprained AC joint), CB Nate Hairston (knee), and RB/returner Trenton Cannon didn’t practice either.
