Kelechi Osemele, having shoulder surgery, will be a one-and-done for the Jets. No way he's back next year with an $11.4M salary. They got three games out of him. The Jets didn't give up much to get Osemele from Oakland, dealing a fifth rounder and receiving a sixth (injured CB Bless Austin) in return. At the time, it seemed like a solid trade, but former GM Mike Maccagnan over-estimated Osemele's ability to rebound from a poor 2018. Truth be told, he was on the verge of getting benched.

The Jets have activated TE Chris Herndon to their roster. His status for Monday night is up in the air because of his hamstring, but they had to make the move because his roster exemption expired today. To make room, they waived LB Frankie Luvu.

Coach Adam Gase did not slam the door shut on the Leonard Williams trade rumors. Gase talked around it, saying he's not concerned with hypotheticals. He said he hasn't received word from the front office on trade offers. He added: "Anything is possible. Right now, I like how our team is." The trading deadline is Oct. 29.

The Jets could be without LT Kelvin Beachum (sprained ankle) on Monday against the Patriots. He's listed as week-to-week, meaning they have to get Brandon Shell ready to start. Shell, a natural right tackle, played 21 snaps yesterday in Beachum's spot and did "a really good job," coach Adam Gase said. Other injury news: LB C.J. Mosley (groin), out four games, could return to practice this week — "a big step for us," per Gase. TE Chris Herndon (hamstring) may try to practice.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said he wasn't surprised by the Jets' offensive "explosion" yesterday. Tossing a bouquet to Adam Gase, Belichick said, "Give him a little extra time, get the quarterback back, iron out a few things, it's not a big surprise to see Adam show a big spike in improvement." Belichick, who faces Gase next Monday, called him an "excellent" coach, adding, "I fully expected things to improve once he had some time to work on it."

ANALYSIS: Hewitt left temporarily with a shoulder injury, which meant PT for McClellan, who left with a concussion. Defense was in nickel almost the entire game. Not much work for Copeland in season debut. (Via Next Gen Stats)

The Jets' much-maligned offensive line improved its pass protection after last week's 10-sack debacle in Philly. It allowed only two sacks and only six pressures (one was a coverage sack), per NFL Next Gen Stats. C Ryan Kalil called it a team effort, saying their hard work finally paid off.

Jets DL Leonard Williams said he wasn't aware of any trade speculation. Asked how he feels about the uncertainty, he said, "I wouldn't say it makes me uneasy. You see the best players in the league get traded. It's not like a personal thing. It's just the way the business is." ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that teams are showing interest in Williams. The Jets appear to be open to trading him if the price is right.

Jets coach Adam Gase explained the strategy on the two-point stop late in the game: "Gregg (Williams) blitzed everybody, so I don't think we really cared what they were doing on offense. Somebody was coming free." That someone was Jamal Adams. The Jets rushed six and Dallas had only five blockers, so Adams came up the middle and pressured Dak Prescott into an incompletion.

Jets injury report: LT Kelvin Beachum (ankle) will have an MRI in the morning. He was replaced by Brandon Shell, who had no prior experience at left tackle. This will be problematic if Beachum has to miss time. LB Albert McClellan has a concussion.

Sam Darnold: Great to be back

Jets QB Sam Darnold discussed what it meant to return to the field and lead the team to their first win of the season.

Darnold throws 2 TDs in return, Jets edge Cowboys 24-22

Sam Darnold gave the Jets' struggling offense a huge boost by throwing two touchdown passes in his return from mononucleosis, and New York held on to beat the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 on Sunday night for their first win of the season.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Sam Darnold returned and the Jets looked like a real football team. They beat the Cowboys, 24-22, their first win under Adam Gase. Darnold led a first-half offensive explosion and it was enough as the defense held on in crunch time. The Jets (1-4) won't make the playoffs, but this was a badly needed win for team morale.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets will take a 21-9 lead into the fourth quarter, looking for their first win. They blew a great scoring chance with Sam Darnold's red-zone interception, and now it's on the defense to protect a lead against the NFL's No. 1 offense. This will tell us something about their killer instinct.
