NY Jets’ wide receiver Jamison Crowder is listed as questionable for Week 15.

The NY Jets are mostly healthy heading into their Week 15 matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, But the one player who will be listed with any sort of designation on the injury report is wide receiver Jamison Crowder.

Crowder has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game making his usual appearance on the weekly injury report. The 27-year-old slot receiver has been dealing with a calf injury that caused him to miss Wednesday’s practice.

The Jets listed Crowder has questionable last week with the same injury, but he was ultimately good to play. However, he put together a quiet week hauling in just two catches for seven yards. Perhaps the injury contributed to his lack of production.

Crowder was held out of Wednesday’s practice but was a limited participant on both Thursday and Friday. By all accounts, it seems as though Crowder will play this week and the fact that he’s trended in the right direction in practice is a positive sign.

The NY Jets have seen Jamison Crowder deal with multiple injuries this year

This isn’t the first time — nor is it the second — that Crowder has popped up in the injury report with a soft-tissue problem. Crowder missed two of the Jets’ first three games with a hamstring injury and later missed two more games with a groin issue.

His latest ailment has to do with his calf marking the third different injury that Crowder has suffered this season.

The former Washington receiver has garnered somewhat of a reputation for being injury-prone throughout his career. However, it’s fair to say that criticism is a bit overblown.

Prior to this season, Crowder had played in 15+ games in every season except one and had only missed one game aside from the seven weeks he missed in 2018 due to a serious high-ankle sprain.

But in 2020, he seems to have caught a bit of a case of the injury bug. Of course, he has only missed four games as a result — it could be a lot worse.

Crowder’s status is one worth keeping an eye on this weekend as the Jets prepare for what will likely be a one-sided drubbing at the hands of their superior foes.

And that lopsided matchup could grow even more unfair if Crowder is forced to miss the game.
