C.J Mosley’s lost season officially ended Tuesday when the Jets placed him injured reserve, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
The Pro Bowl linebacker never got back on track after suffering a groin injury in the season opener.
He aggravated his injury in Gang Green’s shutout primetime loss to the Patriots in Week 7 and never returned.
Mosley attempted to hold off surgery, but he never felt right during his rehab. It also never made sense to rush him back given that the Jets are not in the playoff picture.
The Jets gave the former Ravens star a five-year, $85 million deal that included $51 million guaranteed in free agency.
