It was ridiculous this Jet didn’t play more last year Dan Leberfeld

The two guys they will likely roll with this Sunday at the position are fine . . .

The question is about depth at this point.

Talking about the Jets inside linebacker position.

With injuries to Avery Williamson (hamstring), Patrick Onwuasor (knee) and Blake Cashman (groin), and another player taking this season off (C.J. Mosley), the Jets are very thin at inside linebacker now.

However, come Sunday, they should be fine at the starting positions with Neville Hewitt and Harvey Langi, who came in for Cashman in Buffalo after he pulled his groin.

Anybody who thinks Langi is a downgrade from Cashman is probably mistaken.

In fact, the big mystery is why Langi didn’t play more last year. That was clearly a big mistake. The BYU product is a big (6-2, 251), fast (4.62 forty), tough, instinctive linebacker who plays with great intensity.

His playmaking ability was on full display in Buffalo, late in the third quarter, knocking down a pass to running back Devin Singletary, preventing a touchdown.

The Jets should be fine at the starting positions, but depth is another story.

Will Williamson be able to come back this week? Will practice squad linebackers Alex Ogletree and Paul Worrilow be ready to roll with very little practice time?

So the question this week is about depth.

The starters are solid.
