As the New York Jets prepare for training camp in late July, here’s the complete profile of wide receiver Quincy Enunwa as he prepares to bounce back after a season-ending injury last year.
Late last summer, New York Jets fans were shocked, sad, and frustrated when news broke out that during the Gang Green Scrimmage game, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa suffered a severe injury. When it was later revealed to be a neck injury, it was a glaring possibility that Enunwa might not play a single snap that season depending on how it looked after x-rays and testing.
Surely enough, Enunwa needed neck surgery to correct the problem which, before the injury, was a lingering issue for him that was eventually going to need to be done. Enunwa ended up having a successful surgery and began the lengthy rehab process to get back to resuming football activities about a year later.
At this point in time, Enunwa was limited in organized team activities and mandatory minicamp. He still joined his teammates but didn’t do anything major or even participate in team drills. Head coach Todd Bowles has stated he didn’t want to rush anything and still won’t push for Enunwa to return until he’s 100 percent ready and medically cleared.

2017 SEASON REVIEW
Due to a season-ending neck injury, Enunwa missed all of last season with the Jets. After surgery in 2017, he followed all the procedures to prepare for his hopeful return to the gridiron in 2018.
2018 SEASON OUTLOOK
Enunwa is as determined as ever before to come back ready to continue where he left off from before his injury. In 2016, Enunwa was coming off his best season yet with the Jets where he totaled 58 receptions, 857 receiving yards, and four touchdowns. Expect to see Enunwa compete in training camp and be a starter again on the Jets offense this upcoming season. He’ll share No. 1 duties with Robby Anderson and be another legitimate threat that opposing defenses must account for.
TRAINING CAMP PREDICTION
Enunwa might not start immediately in full football activities in training camp but will get the green light to do so sooner rather than later. He will undoubtedly make the final roster as he prepares for his fourth season with the Jets.
