LB Josh mauga is out for year with torn pec, per source

This will undoubtedly mean an increased role for rookie Demario Davis, who had seen his role slowly increasing over the past few weeks anyway. With Bart Scott currently dealing with a toe/foot injury, could Nick Bellore start seeing some defensive reps too?

Mauga is a restricted free agent at the end of the year, but it seems unlikely the Jets would tender him, since I doubt any other team would offer him more than a minimum salary.

In other injury news, Rex Ryan said today that he thinks Nick Mangold will play on Sunday. There is no news on Clyde Gates’ shoulder injury yet.
