Enunwa suffered the injury while running downfield to cover a punt. He has been placed in the NFL protocol which he will need to pass in order to start playing again. So far he has passed some of the tests and has joined his team back on the field for practice. He is highly unlikely to play this Saturday against the New York Giants as well as the Philadelphia Eagles the following week.

He was out on the field this week for practice which means he is taking the right steps in making his comeback. He stood on the sidelines with his coaches and took in what they were teaching. Enunwa will be a big part of the Jets’ offense this season after an impressive season last year.

Even though he didn’t play many games when his number was called he made every effort to make sure he stayed on the field. His stats last season were good as he had 22 receptions, 315 total yards, and 14.3 yards average per catch. He played a big part late in the season last year as the Jets need him back healthy and ready to continue his momentum.

At 6’2″ and weighing 225 pounds, Enunwa is on his way to possibly have a bigger impact in 2016.

This year with wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker being the best duo and teams double covering them, Enunwa will be able to exploit mismatches.

Enunwa is a player that could have a breakout season for the Jets and help make their offense even scarier that what it could be.

He has the skill-set and ability to truly take the top off of defenses.

Overall, Enunwa will need to take his time in coming back to the field. He should listen to what the team physicians are asking him to do and take it day by day. Anyone who has had a concussion knows it is something that it shouldn’t be taken lightly. The Jets have a tough road ahead this upcoming season and need him back when he’s ready to assume his role on offense.
