New York Jets inside linebacker C.J. Mosley revealed that he’s officially cleared for all physical activity and is ready for training camp.

C.J. Mosley is ready. On the heels of his only disastrous NFL season, the New York Jets linebacker revealed his status on a Zoom call Wednesday afternoon.

He’s been cleared for activity and expects to be cleared for training camp. In other words, he feels as though he will be a full participant at training camp, despite the core-muscle surgery he had in December.

“That won’t stop me during the season from getting back on the field,” he said. “Once I got that out of the way, now I’m pretty confident I’ll be good to go.”

Mosley, 27, dressed in just two games for the Jets a year ago after signing a mega five-year, $85 million deal prior to the 2019 season. Considering the Alabama product missed just three games over the first five seasons of his professional career, the 2019 season was a rough one.

That nagging groin was the issue.

Dropping back in Gregg Williams’s familiar middle-third of a Tampa 2 scheme, Mosley tweaked that groin in the end zone against the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. He didn’t return until the New England Patriots game in Week 7 but was forced to leave early in that one as well.

Groins are a tricky injury. Unlike hamstrings or quads, the groin—especially in Mosley’s case—can take a lot off an athlete’s fastball. And at 27 years of age, Mosley isn’t a youngster anymore.

Fans wondered why Joe Douglas kept his inside linebacker position loaded this offseason. There’s no guarantee either Mosley or Avery Williamson will return to full strength in 2020. For now, however, C.J. Mosley is keeping an optimistic outlook about the new campaign.
