New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is expected to be healthy and suit up against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
This week, Robby Anderson was a limited participant in practice for the New York Jets. The veteran wide receiver has been nursing a calf injury that’s set him back since August. Anderson didn’t play in the team’s preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, Aug. 29.
However, despite the injury, Anderson should be ready to go for this weekend against the Buffalo Bills. Per Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk, Jets head coach Adam Gase noted that they were taking it easy with Anderson this week. The caution shown by Gase is to ensure he’ll be good to go once their opening regular-season game at MetLife Stadium rolls around this Sunday.
The starting receivers for the Jets are expected to be Anderson and veterans Quincy Enunwa and Jamison Crowder. The Jets signed the latter to a three-year, $28.5 million deal in March. Crowder previously spent the last four seasons with the Washington Redskins, who drafted him in the fourth round (No. 105 overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Duke.
Anderson caught 50 balls on 94 targets through 14 games last year for 752 yards and six touchdowns. He’s entering his fourth year for Gang Green. New York signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Temple in 2016.
The Jets will enter the 2019 season looking to have one of the more effective offenses in the AFC. With these receivers, an offensive-minded head coach in Gase, and an up-and-coming quarterback in Sam Darnold, they definitely have the tools to get it done on that end of the field.
