New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis will undergo surgery. The surgery will be to repair an injury in his core that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.
New York Post’s Jets beat writer Brian Costello reported the news via Twitter on Monday afternoon.
Corey Davis is having core muscle surgery tomorrow. His season is over, Saleh said.

Davis was the fifth overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans out of Western Michigan University. He played with the Titans for four seasons before signing with the New York Jets on a three-year, $37.5 million contract.
This season he has played in eight games, catching 32 balls 477 yards and four touchdowns. He has also fumbled the ball twice, losing one of those fumbles. Compare this to his 2020 season, in which he played 14 games, had 984 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Both of those numbers were career bests for Davis, ahead of his free agency period.
