NY Jets: Quincy Enunwa suspended the next 4 games
Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa of the New York Jets has been suspended for the next 4 games for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy.
A statement was released earlier today by an NFL spokesperson revealing that wide receiver Quincy Enunwa of the NY Jets has been suspended for the next 4 games of the 2015 season. This statement was provided by the Media Relations Department of the Jets:
“Quincy Enunwa of the New York Jets has been suspended without pay for the team’s next four games for violating the NFL Personal Conduct Policy. Enunwa’s suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to return to the Jets’ active roster on Friday, November 13 following the team’s November 12 game against the Buffalo Bills.”
This news comes just a day after the Jets got their 4th win of the season by defeating the Washington Redskins in Week 6 of NFL action. Shortly after the NFL released their discipline on Enunwa the Jets released this statement again provided by the Jets’ Media Relations Department:
“We support and respect the NFL’s decision to suspend Quincy Enunwa. The New York Jets share the NFL’s ongoing commitment to raising awareness of the frequency and impact of domestic and relationship violence, supporting survivors, and encouraging others to speak out and seek help.”

Enunwa was drafted as one of the infamous ‘Idzik 12′ back in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Nebraska. Over this off-season, Enunwa was heralded as a rising star in the Jets’ organized team activities. Surprisingly rising all the way to third on the depth chart.
Standing at 6 foot 2 inches, Enunwa became a bit of a tweener for the Jets and his size and power aided him in his ability to block down the field. Through 6 weeks of NFL action, Enunwa had accumulated a pedestrian 8 receptions for 94 yards without a touchdown reception.
But again the Jets have relied heavily on their starters with Chris Ivory, Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall accounting for nearly all of the offensive output so far this season. Besides the fact the Jets will miss his blocking more so then his statistical impact on the field, Enunwa will be eligible to return to the field in Week 11 when the Jets travel to play the Houston Texans.
