The Jets were just dealt a major injury blow.
Starting wide receiver Quincy Enunwa suffered a neck injury in the loss to the Bills and will not be able to return this year. This is the second serious neck injury Enunwa has suffered. He missed the entire 2017 season after injuring his neck in training camp that year. It is unclear whether this injury is considered career-threatening.
Jets coach Adam Gase confirmed the news.
Enunwa left Sunday’s game in the first quarter briefly and then returned. He only had one catch for [minus]-4 yards in the game and was targeted just three times.
Gase said Enunwa informed them Monday that he still did not feel right and was sent for tests. Those tests showed the seriousness of the injury and the doctors ruled him out for the season. Gase said Enunwa was seeing a specialist and undergoing more tests. He was not sure if this could end Enunwa’s career.
