In the latest New York Jets training camp, head coach Todd Bowles confirmed many injuries but didn’t get into any specifics whatsoever.
Injuries are a part of professional football but so far early on in training camp, the New York Jets are already dealing with several starting players dealing with issues right from the start. Worst of all, head coach Todd Bowles has decided to stay mum when questions are asked about what some of his star players are dealing with.
It’s understandable to a degree but at the end of the day, keeping everyone in the dark won’t do anyone any favors as to how the strength of the roster starts to shape up. With preseason action on the horizon, many starters are already dealing with injuries.
Courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets, Bowles didn’t say exactly what happened with wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. He confirmed he was injured in a previous practice and was getting treated inside with the Jets medical staff.

Offensive guard Brian Winters left training camp on Wednesday early due to an injury, but Bowles wasn’t aware why and would eventually find out later on in the day. Cornerback Buster Skrine has a splint on his finger as Bowles said he hurt his finger.
Even tight end Jordan Leggett suffered some kind of training camp injury but Bowles didn’t specify exactly what kept him out of training camp on Wednesday. When asked about if any of the injuries that have hit players in training camp could linger into the regular season, here is what Bowles said again, courtesy of the Media Relations Department of the Jets:
I won’t speculate on injuries at this time, but we’ll see.
Perhaps Bowles is waiting to see medical reports before officially going on record with what each player is dealing with but this is peculiar, to say the least. The majority of times head coaches will say what happened to a player and then say they’ll keep everyone posted when anything changes. Bowles is taking a page out of the Bill Belichick way and keeping everyone out of the loop until he feels like revealing what is going on.
Hopefully, all these starters and potential key contributors heal up sooner rather than later. The Jets are preparing now to bounce back from two straight losing seasons in which they ended both campaigns at 5-11.
