C.J. Mosley's first season with the Jets hasn't gone according to plan. 

Listen to your team news NOW.

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. 

"He should get it fixed," O'Brien told Francesa. "He doesn't have enough time to come back this year but it's a good way to ensure that it doesn't come back. It's a very good surgery, well-worked out."

Mosley isn't in a rush to make his decision, one that will most likely end his season. He told ESPN's Rich Cimini he'd undergone a minor procedure where he was injected with platelet-rich plasma in an effort to avoid missing a significant amount of time. 

"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.
