The New York Jets got hit with a big blow in their Week 6 win over the Indianapolis Colts with a foot injury to wide receiver Quincy Enunwa.
Unfortunately for the New York Jets, they’ll be without their main playmaker on offense for at least the next few weeks. As per ESPN’s Rich Cimini, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa will miss the next three to four weeks due to a high-ankle sprain injury he suffered in the Jets Week 6 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
So far this season, Enunwa has been the top offensive playmaker for the Jets. To date, he’s totaled 287 receiving yards, 22 receptions, and one touchdown. As always when it comes to injuries, it’s the “next man up” mentality which bodes well for players like Robby Anderson, Terrelle Pryor, and Jermaine Kearse, who all saw an increase in reps with Enunwa out.
Ideally, the Jets will continue moving forward despite being hit with the injury bug a bit sooner than usual. They’ve won two straight games at home in MetLife Stadium and face one of their toughest opponents so far this season in the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7 action.

Without Enunwa, the Jets will have the odds stacked against them but hopefully, they can continue to stick with what has been working in their rushing attack. It’s no secret that when the Jets run the football and commit to it, they tend to leave a football game victorious.
For now, Enunwa is in a walking boot and will slowly once again begin another rehab process in the same year as he had neck surgery. Hopefully, it’s a speedy recovery as at most, he could return to action as early as Week 10 or Week 11 the latest.
With the Jets now back at .500 for the first time this season, these next few weeks will see just what this team is made of. Injuries are piling up and temperatures are about to get colder. Hopefully, they can prove they can win even when they’re hurting and continue to make 2018 a memorable season.
