The NY Jets are going to be banged up this Sunday with Jamison Crowder and others doubtful.
The NY Jets are dealing with even more injuries than they were a week ago — not that anyone should be surprised. And it’s looking like they’ll be without the likes of Jamison Crowder, Connor McGovern, and more this upcoming Sunday.
Head coach Adam Gase spoke to reporters on Thursday to give an injury update ahead of practice. And he probably put things best when he told them that the Jets need “whoever has a pulse” to be ready.
Things have gotten that bad.
Gase said that Crowder is currently doubtful to play in Sunday’s game, although he won’t rule him out. The slot receiver injured his hamstring ahead of Week 2 and wound up missing last Sunday’s game.
Now, it seems as though he’s on track to miss yet another game — perhaps even longer.
As for McGovern, the Jets’ starting center exited Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a hamstring injury (shocker) and did not return. He didn’t practice on either Wednesday or Thursday which is usually an indicator that a player won’t play that week.
They are far from the only players who have yet to practice this week, however.
Jamison Crowder and Connor McGovern aren’t the only NY Jets players who haven’t practiced.
Wide receiver Breshad Perriman also did not practice as he continues to nurse an ankle injury he suffered in Week 2. If he doesn’t play, the Jets will likely be down their top four wide receivers in Crowder, Perriman, Denzel Mims, and Vyncint Smith.
Cornerback Quincy Wilson sat out for the second straight day as well after suffering a concussion in Sunday’s loss. Wilson received the start this past week but left early with an injury and it doesn’t look promisng that he’ll be cleared before this weekend.
Davis sat out on Thursday with a groin injury and there’s a good chance he misses this week’s game — perhaps why the team opted to sign veteran safety Marqui Christian.
As for Fant, he suffered a concussion in Wednesday’s practice and, much like Wilson, it’s unlikely he’s cleared before Sunday. That means we’ll probably see Chuma Edoga step in for him at right tackle.
The injuries continue to pile up for the Jets and as Gase said, they currently just need anyone with a pulse.
