As Leonard Williams’ future with the Jets continues to be a topic, Adam Gase said he likes his team but won’t rule anything out.

ESPN reported Sunday that the Jets are receiving calls about Williams and that they currently are not interested in trading him. It’s something they would have to consider for the right price, though.

“I don’t deal in the hypothetical aspect,” Gase said Monday. “These guys get calls all year- round about trades and things like that. That’s really something I’m not going to be dealing with unless guys come to me and tell me something is on the table, which I haven’t had any of those conversations.

“I don’t know what other teams are thinking. But right now, I like the way our guys are rolling. Anything is always possible. But right now, I like what our team is.”

Mosley on horizon

Middle linebacker C.J. Mosley might have a shot at returning this week, especially with the Jets getting an extra day off. They’ll play the Patriots on Monday night.

“That’s a big step for us,” Gase said.

Mosley has missed four games with a groin injury, but Gase hopes he will practice this week. 

Herndon activated

The Jets activated tight end Chris Herndon and waived linebacker Frankie Luvu. They had to make the move because Herndon’s roster exemption expired Monday. He was eligible to return Sunday after a four-game suspension, but he suffered a hamstring injury while running routes in practice. Gase indicated Herndon might be able to practice this week.

Injury news

LT Kelvin Beachum suffered an ankle injury in Sunday’s game and is week-to-week. That means he’ll likely miss this week’s game. Brandon Shell stepped in for Beachum on Sunday . . . DE Henry Anderson (shoulder) also has a chance to practice and play this week after missing Sunday’s game.

Falk’s release

The Jets cut Luke Falk, who started at quarterback in the previous two games, because they believed David Fales was their best option to back up Sam Darnold on Sunday. Falk struggled in the two starts. The Jets needed the roster spot to activate linebacker Brandon Copeland after he served a four-game suspension.
