Jets LB C.J. Mosley declared on Thursday that he would be returning Monday night against the Patriots, and he'll keep moving in the right direction on Friday.
Speaking before practice, head coach Adam Gase said that Mosley will be limited in practice and take part in team drills for the first time since his injury. Gase was also a fan of Mosley's declaration that he would be playing.
Mosley made an enormous impact in Week 1, when he had a pick-six, recovered a fumble, and had six total tackles.
The Jets' defense hasn't been the same without him, and getting him back in time for Monday night's enormous game against the Patriots in Foxborough would be a huge boost.
Gase spoke Wednesday about the potential impact of getting Mosley back.
"As impactful as getting a starting quarterback back," Gase explained. "It's that impactful. ... Obviously he's a dynamic playmaker and he gets his hands on the ball.But he cleans up a lot of things. He can mask a lot of errors. He's a very intelligent player. He's seen a lot of football. So he sees things coming that young guys don't."
Ryan Kalil has shoulder injury
C Ryan Kalil injured his shoulder during practice on Thursday and will not practice on Friday, Gase said.
Kalil is day-to-day.
