FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley says he will play Monday night against the New England Patriots barring any setbacks at practice this week.

Mosley has been sidelined since injuring his groin during the third quarter of the Jets’ season-opening loss to Buffalo. He participated in individual drills Thursday for the first time in his recovery process.

Mosley declared after practice that he will be on the field against the Patriots unless he gets hurt before the game. The team had not previously announced that Mosley will return Monday night.

Mosley’s return is a huge boost to the Jets’ defense. He made an immediate impact for New York in the opener with an interception returned for a touchdown and a fumble recovery against the Bills before being injured.
