As the New York Jets prepare for their Preseason Week 1 matchup against the Tennessee Titans, they released their official depth chart.
Preseason Week 1 is just about to be upon us as the New York Jets prepare for the long season ahead. Unfortunately, in shocking news, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will miss the entire season due to a bulging disc in his neck he suffered in the Green & White scrimmage game.
Enunwa was set to be their No. 1 receiving option and now, they have to stick with the “next man up” philosophy. According to the official depth chart released by the Jets, wide receiver Robby Anderson, as of now, is in at No.1 to take his place.
In another bit of news, quarterback Josh McCown, which is no surprise to many, is the starter heading into this matchup. Considering he’s been getting the majority of first-team reps, it looks like the Jets will more than likely stick with McCown to start off the regular season under center.
Take a look at the official depth chart taken from the official Twitter account of Dennis Waszak Jr. of Pro 32 AP:

The depth chart of the Jets gives an early glimpse of how training camp battles have gone so far.
Of course, anything can change but for now, those that are in starting positions are pretty much safe. Backups, third stringers, and beyond that, however, have much to prove if they plan to stick around with the Jets.
Preseason action is a huge measuring stick to determine who moves up, moves down, and well, makes or breaks their chances to remain on the final 53-man roster. It’s not easy but at the end of the day, players on the roster bubble can easily prove their worth by shining in preseason action.
It remains to be seen how much playing time starters will get but make sure to keep an eye on backups and those behind them as they showcase their talents to prove they’re ready to deliver when football games that actually matter are here.
