Jets star safety Jamal Adams suffered an ankle sprain in yesterday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Adam Gase termed Adams “week to week” on Monday, indicating he might miss at least the upcoming game against the Miami.
Adams is just one of the injuries the Jets are dealing with in the secondary.

QB Sam Darnold (knee/ribs) is okay.
S Jamal Adams has an ankle sprain and is having an MRI but is likely week-to-week, per Adam Gase.
CB Arthur Maulet has a calf strain.
CB Brian Poole is in the concussion protocol after having symptoms this morning.
It might be obvious to say, but the Jets are playing out the string at this point. Any injuries to key players should be treated with an abundance of caution.
If the team was making a legitimate Playoff push there would be an argument for Adams to get back onto the field as soon as he could, even if he was less than 100%. As things stand now, there should be no rush. The priority should be for Adams to get healthy for the offseason and ready to participate in the offseason program. He shouldn’t play until he is fully healthy, even if that isn’t until 2020.
