Enunwa suffered a neck injury during the team’s Green and White Scrimmage on Saturday evening, and it was reported that he missed practice on Monday with the neck issue.
Enunwa was poised to become the number one receiver for the team this season after having a breakout season last year, in which he recorded 58 catches, 857 yards, and four touchdowns.
It’s not immediately clear who will take over the number one receiver now with Enunwa out. Robby Anderson, Charone Peak and Jalin Marshall all were with the Jets last season and could fill in. Rookies ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen should see an increased role as well. It’s possible that the team will make a trade or sign a free agent as well.
Losing the only wide receiver with any significant experience will be a huge blow for an already inexperienced wide receiver group.
