The New York Jets have had so many strange injuries this season that linebacker CJ Mosley's strange groin injury barely cracks the top five. Nevertheless, it appears that after playing through the injury this past week, he'll be back on the shelf - and this time, he might not come back.

Speaking to the media on Friday, Jets head coach Adam Gase announced that Mosley is out for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

But on a more serious note, it appears that the injured reserve list is a legitimate option for the ailing middle linebacker.

"Everything is on the table right now," Gase said.

The Jets signed Mosley to a five-year, $85 million deal this past season - the largest contract in team history.

Mosley had a remarkable first game for the New York Jets in their home opener against the Buffalo Bills. He had two interceptions and a pick-six through three quarters.

But Mosley suffered a groin injury on a pass defense and missed the rest of the game.

Gase initially said it would only take him a few days to recover, but he ended up missing the next three games.

Mosley returned to action against the Patriots this past week and played the majority of the team's snaps.

And now he may not play another game this year...
