New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley, defensive lineman Quinnen Williams may not be able to practice on Wednesday.
This past weekend, the New York Jets had two of their defensive players leave their game early against the Buffalo Bills.
Veteran linebacker C.J. Mosley exited the game in the third quarter with an injury to his groin. He went for an MRI on Monday. Additionally, rookie defensive lineman Quinnen Williams (No. 3 overall selection in the draft) left the game with an ankle injury. He was placed in a walking boot.
Head coach Adam Gase stated this week that he doesn’t believe either will be able to practice on Wednesday, per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. The Jets will gather this week to fix the mistakes they made from their 17-16 loss to Buffalo as well as prepare for the Cleveland Browns.
Gang Green will take on the Browns on Monday Night Football in Week 2. Both teams are coming off 0-1 starts to this 2019 season.
Mosley had a great game before going down with the injury on Sunday. He racked up five total tackles, a pick-six that got the scoring going early in the first quarter, two passes defended, and one fumble recovery.
Williams didn’t rack up a tackle in his first NFL regular-season contest.
The Jets will now face a Browns team that has offensive weapons such as quarterback Baker Mayfield, running back Nick Chubb, receiver Jarvis Landry, and former New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Cleveland is coming off a 43-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
