C.J. Mosley's first season with the Jets hasn't gone according to plan.
Mosley has only played two games after he signed a five-year deal worth $85 million - $51 million guaranteed with the Jets in the offseason. He'll miss Gang Green's Week 12 meeting with the Raiders due to a nagging groin and abdominal injury.
It leaves the Pro Bowl linebacker to make a difficult decision whether he should undergo a procedure to fix the problem, which has kept him sidelined for the majority of the season. Dr. Steve O'Brien joined WFAN's Mike Francesa to discuss the possible route the 27-year-old should take.
"I'm trying to do everything I can to avoid surgery and play," Mosley told ESPN. "Worst-case scenario, I'll have to get surgery if next week doesn't go well."
Mosley fought off the injury bug the majority of his NFL career. He only missed three games in five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens — playing an entire season on three separate occasions — where he became a reliable defensive standout in the league.
