FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – Robert Saleh said the Jets won’t hold a fire sale before Tuesday’s trade deadline.

The Jets are 1-5 and appear headed for another dismal season. But Saleh said they won’t treat this deadline as they did last year when the Jets were winless.

General manager Joe Douglas dealt Steve McLendon to Tampa Bay, Avery Williamson to Pittsburgh and Jordan Willis to San Francisco for draft capital. Saleh said he’s "in complete lock-step" with Douglas in their approach this year.

"If it’s something that will help us, great," Saleh said. "If it’s not, great. We’ll stay pat. Forcing things is not Joe’s forte. He’s very deliberate. He communicates with us all the time. I love the way he goes about his business. I love his process. I’m with Joe.

"If it’s something that’s going to help us awesome. But I also know we’re not looking for a fire sale either."

Health updates

Linebacker C.J. Mosley, who missed last week’s game with a hamstring issue, was limited in practice Wednesday. Barring a setback, Mosley is expected to play Sunday.

The Jets also could have linebacker Jarrad Davis for the first time this season. Davis, who suffered an ankle injury in the preseason, has been designated to return from injured reserve.

Defensive end Kyle Phillips (ankle) and punter Braden Mann (knee) also were designated to return to practice.

Defense can’t rest

John Franklin-Myers said the defensive line took "accountability" for Sunday’s beating against the Patriots. The whole defense was at fault for the Jets allowing 54 points. Franklin-Myers said the defense met with its coaches and then privately about that performance.

"We spoke as a defense, we spoke as a defensive line, it starts with us and we took that personal," Franklin-Myers said. "We understand that this team goes as we go. Stuff like that can’t happen. We put it on us to ensure it doesn’t happen again."

Injury report

Linebacker Quincy Williams (concussion), defensive end Bryce Huff (back), running back Tevin Coleman (hamstring) and tight end Trevon Wesco (knee) did not practice. Safety Ashtyn Davis (shoulder), tight end Tyler Kroft (back) and defensive end Shaq Lawson (wrist) were limited.
