The New York Jets got a scare during their Green & White scrimmage game as wide receiver Quincy Enunwa suffered a head/neck injury.

Unfortunately for the New York Jets, they currently have a situation on their hands when it comes to wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. During their annual Green & White scrimmage game, Enunwa fell to the ground and suffered a head/neck injury.

The Jets are currently rebuilding their team from the ground up as Enunwa is a big part of their new-look offense. With new offensive coordinator John Morton in town, the plan is to have a version of the West Coast offense installed to capitalize on the positional group’s youth and speed.

Enunwa is figured to be a big part of this new offense but unfortunately, he won’t have any results back on tests that are being done until Monday. Hopefully, he’ll be alright as the Jets continue to prepare for the upcoming season. If his injury is severe and would require him missing time, it would put a serious dent on a wide receiver corps that is void of experienced talent.

Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, here is what head coach Todd Bowles had to say about the latest involving Enunwa’s injury:

On nature of Enunwa’s injury…

His neck.

On how Enunwa’s injury happened…

He fell. Nobody touched him. He hit his head or he hit his neck. Something went wrong when he fell.

On if the injury happened when Enunwa hit the ground…

Yes.

On the challenge of Enunwa missing any time considering the youth at wide receiver…

We’ll see what happens first. If we have to lose him, we’ll adjust from there but we have young guys coming on so we’ll see what the results are first then we’ll go from there.

Enunwa is coming off his best season yet with the Jets. In 2016, Enunwa totaled 857 receiving yards, 58 receptions, and four touchdowns. He’s projected to be the No. 1 receiving option on the depth chart.
