The New York Jets have officially placed linebacker C.J. Mosley, who’s been dealing with a groin setback, on season-ending injured reserve.
Over the two games (both starts), Mosley racked up nine combined tackles, one interception (one pick-six), two passes defended, and one fumble recovery.
The Jets originally signed him to a five-year, $85 million deal prior to this season after he made four Pro Bowls in five campaigns with the Baltimore Ravens.
Thus, James Burgess will most likely remain at the starting inside linebacker spot, as he has the previous six weeks. Burgess has 44 combined tackles and .5 sacks this year.
In addition to placing Mosley on injured reserve, the Jets have also claimed defensive back Bennett Jackson off waivers. This comes just one day after the Ravens waived him.
It’ll be Jackson’s second stint with the Jets in this year alone. On Sept. 1, the Jets claimed him off waivers, only to waive him on Sept. 16. He was then re-signed to the practice squad.
The Ravens signed Jackson off New York’s practice squad in October prior to waiving him this week. Jackson appeared in four games for the Ravens this season, racking up two tackles.
