Unfortunately for the New York Jets, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa got hit with a thumb injury and will likely miss up to two weeks of action in training camp.
In an article written by Manish Mehta, he confirmed that wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will miss up to one to two weeks of training camp due to a thumb injury. Just a few days ago, head coach Todd Bowles didn’t get into specifics on what exactly kept Enunwa out of training camp as the Jets got hit with several other injuries to starters as well.
This doesn’t bode well for Enunwa’s return to the gridiron after missing all of last season with a severe neck injury. Enunwa needed surgery for it to begin the lengthy rehab process but now, will also be rehabbing from a slight hand injury.
The Jets are stacked at wide receiver which now likely means that Jermaine Kearse will see an increase of reps in training camp as well as others on the depth chart. With players like Terrelle Pryor, Chad Hansen, ArDarius Stewart, and others who are trying to stand out, it will give them an opportunity to make the most of the situation.

Hopefully, Enunwa returns within the next week or two and isn’t hindered in everything he brings to the table. The Jets are counting on him to pick up where he left off from in 2016 that saw him thrive in a breakout season.
Robby Anderson still remains as the top receiving threat on offense but would need help alongside him if the Jets want to be competitive in football games. The wide receiver corps has the potential to be very good, but again, it all depends on the health and execution of everyone in the positional group.
If things don’t work out at the start of the regular season, whether it’s injuries or a steep decline in play, the wide receiver corps could turn into a nightmare of a situation. Especially if Enunwa doesn’t bounce back from this recent injury from training camp.
