Former NFL tight end Benjamin Watson was proud of Patrick Mahomes and others video to the league. He believes Roger Goodell’s response was a positive first step towards real change. Now it’s the owners turn. The New York Jets have one more thing to look forward to when training camp begins in late July: a fully healthy C.J. Mosley back on the field.
Mosley said Wednesday that he expects to have no limitations during training camp after undergoing surgery late last year for a groin injury that cost him nearly the entire 2019 season.
“[I’m] cleared to do everything with my trainers every week,” Mosley said. “Once we get back in the building, whenever that is, we’ll go from there. Mosley admitted that the rehab process has been a challenge during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He’s remained at his home in New Jersey, following his rehab instructions while working out in his basement. But he’s still made good progress and says he’s able to plant and cut the way he could before the injury.
The 27-year-old signed a five-year, $85 million contract last year to join the Jets in free agency. But he played only two games after suffering the groin injury late in the third quarter of the Jets’ season-opening loss to the Patriots.
Just don’t take anything for granted,” Mosley said. “You really realize how much the game means to you when you’re away for so long. Just from rehabbing, while the team was practicing, there was like two, three months where I didn’t see the sunlight because I’d get in at 6:00, 6:30 in the morning and then go be in rehab all day and work out and meetings, and by the time I’m out it’s like 6 o’clock and there’s no sun.
