  • Jets LB C.J. Mosley (back) said he missed Wednesday’s practice in order to rest and doesn’t feel concerned about his Week 16 availability: “At this point of the season, you’re just trying to do everything you can to make sure you get to Sunday. That’s been the case. Usually my rest day is on Thursday. As long as I get to Sunday, that’s what is most important.” (Costello)
  • Mosley said TE coach Ron Middleton has the right message for the team while filling in for HC Robert Saleh: “We’re all professionals, we have a job to do. He said, ‘Our routing number doesn’t change. We still want to get paid, so let’s go to work.'” (Rich Cimini)
