Another Jets 'QB' Returns: C.J. Mosley Back at MLB on MNF
New England had a much shorter injury list than the Jets this week, but two of the players declared out bruised the Jets in Game 3, the Patriots' 30-14 win at Gillette. WR Josh Gordon (knee/ankle), who had six catches for 83 yards, and rookie TE Ryan Izzo (concussion), who had a 41-yard catch-and-run from Brady, are both inactive. So is RB Rex Burkhead, who ran for a TD in that September game.
Can it hurt the home team that the Jets tonight will be honoring Kevin Mawae for being inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Mawae, their perennial Pro Bowl center from 1998-2005, will be presented with his Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence by HOF president & CEO Dave Baker during a special halftime presentation. In his Jets career, Mawae gave the Patriots as good as he got, winning seven of his 14 games against the Pats.
He told reporters before the game that playing New England on Monday night is special. Why?
"It's the Patriots - they're the evil empire," Mawae said with a smile. "I alluded to them in my [Canton] speech. They build a great program there. I've got a lot of respect for [Bill] Belichick and what he and Mr. [Robert] Kraft have done. Unfortunately for us, we were on the losing end of a lot of those games, but you've got to appreciate how they've run their organization and the success they've had.
"Everybody hates the winners," he concluded, "and so maybe we'll walk out of here with a win and it'll be satisfying."
We'll have much more on Mawae's visit on newyorkjets.com Tuesday. For now it'll be up to this year's Jets to follow their center's pulling block one more time, turn their mini-roll into a larger one and even a few scores on national TV tonight.
The Jets' full seven-player inactive list tonight is:
- RB Trenton Cannon
- LB Neville Hewitt
- LB Albert McClellan
- T Kelvin Beachum
- G Kelechi Osemele
- TE Chris Herndon
- DL Henry Anderson
And the Patriots' inactive list tonight:
- WR Josh Gordon
- S Patrick Chung
- RB Rex Burkhead
- OL Korey Cunningham
- DL Michael Bennett
- TE Matt LaCosse
- TE Ryan Izzo
The Jets are donning their new Gotham Green jerseys and Spotlight White pants for this one. This will be the second game they've gone green/white this season, following their combination for the one-point loss to the Bills in the opener.
Shawn Hochuli is the referee. It's his second Jets game as a ref, following last season's Game 11, the Jets' 27-13 loss to the Patriots at MetLife.
The Jets didn't get all their injured players back for today's interconference road battle at Philadelphia. QB Sam Darnold, still fighting back from mono, was declared out Friday. MLB C.J. Mosley (groin) will miss his
