How close is wide receiver Quincy Enunwa from resuming regular football activities with the New York Jets? Here’s the latest injury update directly from Enunwa himself.

Before he got hurt with a severe neck injury last year, it was expected that wide receiver Quincy Enunwa would step up and be the No. 1 receiving option of the New York Jets. Unfortunately, he got hurt last year during the Green & White scrimmage game to the point where it was a season-ending injury that would require surgery to correct.

Enunwa has been rehabbing since then and has recently spoken about where he’s at physically as training camp is on the horizon for the Jets. Could the Jets get Enunwa back by training camp to ease him back into resuming football activities?

In an article written by Darryl Slater of NJ.com, here’s what Enunwa told the media at a local charity event:

“It feels good,” he said Tuesday. “It’s as 100 [percent] as I’m supposed to be. I’m probably ahead of schedule, but I’m doing everything with the guys, running routes, catching the ball. There’s really no setbacks right now.”

It’s encouraging news since the Jets are at a point where they need all of their top players ready to deliver this upcoming season. One can only imagine how better the Jets could have been last season if Enunwa was in the lineup but now it’s just a matter if he’ll be back to being the same player Jets fans loved watching on gameday.

By the looks of it, Enunwa should be ready by the start of training camp, even if it’s in limited action as the coaching staff will likely not want to rush him in any way, shape, or form. It’s always good to be safe rather than sorry, especially since Enunwa will likely once again be a big part of the offensive playbook and it would be a shame if he suffered any setbacks.

Hopefully, Enunwa comes back ready and motivated to once again be a premier threat on offense for the Jets. So far in his career with Gang Green, Enunwa has totaled 1,172 receiving yards, 80 receptions, and four touchdowns.
