New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas expects wide receiver Quincy Enunwa to return in 2020. Here are all the details and what it means.

New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas spoke to the media for his end of the season address.

In that conversation with the media, Douglas made it clear that the team expects wide receiver Quincy Enunwa to return in 2020.

Enunwa reiterated that message on Monday but also said he still has some hurdles to clear via Coby Green of SNY.

“It’s unfortunate what’s going on, there’s not much I can really do about it, though. It’s one of those things where I was kind of like born this way I guess, that’s what I found out. … It’s not really one of those things that I can control too much.

Hopefully, I can stay and play well and put up numbers that I want to put (up) for this team, it would be a beautiful thing for me. … but right now it’s just about coming back healthy and handling the situation in a proper way.”

There’s a strong chance the Jets could lose Robby Anderson in free agency which would leave the wide receiver room pretty barren heading into 2020:

Enunwa suffered another neck injury and revealed he was born with spinal stenosis. For our non-medical readers that means, “a narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine.”

There’s no guarantee that he’ll be able to return to the Jets in 2020 but that’s the hope and plan per Joe Douglas. Regardless of whether or not Enunwa returns, the team will have to do some serious work this offseason improving the position via free agency, trade, and the 2020 NFL Draft.

Two additional notes heading into the 2020 offseason:

  • Sam Darnold doesn’t expect he’ll need surgery on his thumb which affected him for a few games. Although he still has to get some more testing.
  • While tight end Ryan Griffin had ankle surgery this week and will be out for the next six months.
