For the second time in three years, Jets’ receiver Quincy Enunwa will miss time due to a neck injury.
Enunwa played in New York’s season opener against the division rival Buffalo Bills. He will not return to the field in 2019-2020, ending his season with -4 yards.
In 2017 he missed the entire season with a similar neck injury. This new ailment may put his career in jeopardy, as neck injuries are treated very seriously in the NFL. He also missed time during the 2018 season with a leg injury.
The Jets signed Enunwa to a 4-year, $36 million contract extension late last year, which is now essentially dead money. New York hopes he will return in 2020.
The Patriots sent over wide receiver Demaryius Thomas for the Jets’ 2021 sixth round pick. A move that is explained with the news of the season-ending injury to Enunwa. With the signing of Antonio Brown, the Patriots had no real need for Thomas.
Jamison Crowder and Robbie Anderson will fill the hole left by Enunwa, along with Demariyus Thomas.
The Jets’ next game comes on Monday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns, who are also 0-1.
