New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson suffered an injury at practice. Here are all the details and how long he could be out for.

While the signing of Le’Veon Bell and the progress Sam Darnold has shown throughout this offseason, many people have overlooked the development of Robby Anderson, who looks primed for a career year in 2019.

Although his latest injury may prevent this jet from taking off.

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase revealed that Robby Anderson didn’t practice on Tuesday because he’s nursing a calf injury. Here’s the full quote from Rich Cimini of ESPN:

“I don’t know if it’s a concern, but any time you have a soft-tissue injury, it’s an unknown. That’s why it’s day-to-day. Hopefully, we’ll get him back for the practices and give him a full week and he feels good and we’ll be ready to roll.”

It doesn’t appear serious, but you always worry about soft tissue injuries.

This at the very least is a warning to gang green that any little injury from this offense could have a major effect on the team in 2019.

With only a few days to go before the season opener, the team will ease Robby back slowly. The team expects him to be fully ready to go for Week 1 vs the Buffalo Bills.

Although if he were to miss time here is what the Jets receiving core looks like:

  • Quincy Enunwa
  • Jamison Crowder
  • Josh Bellamy
  • Greg Dorch
  • Quincy Adeboyejo
  • Deontay Burnett
  • Charone Peake
  • Jeff Smith
  • Deonte Thompson
  • Tim White
  • Ty Montgomery (listed as both a running back and wide receiver)

But if we’re being honest, Robby adds another layer to the offense with his ability to stretch the field that no other player on the roster can match.

The regular season is rapidly approaching and when you consider starting tight end Chris Herndon is suspended for the first month of the season, the squad needs Robby Anderson more than ever.
