New York Jets veteran wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is out for the rest of the 2019 season with a neck injury sustained in Week 1.
The New York Jets have received a devastating blow at the wide receiver position.
On Wednesday, reports came out that Gang Green receiver Quincy Enunwa‘s 2019 season is over. The veteran suffered a neck injury during Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He left during the first quarter of the game but then returned.
This is the second major injury Enunwa has suffered to his neck. He missed the entire 2017 campaign after going down in training camp of that year.
“You lose a starter. You lose a guy that is a veteran player that has been through a lot and that’s done a lot of good things,” Jets head coach Adam Gase said, per Brian Costello of the New York Post. “He’s done everything you possibly could ask a guy to do. He tries to do everything right. He works hard. He studies. He tries to lead by example. He speaks up when he has to. The way he plays, everything is violent and he gives everything he has. I feel for him just in the aspect that he’s going through something like this.”
Losing one receiver comes with adding another for New York. The Jets orchestrated a trade with the New England Patriots and acquired veteran wideout Demaryius Thomas this week. Thomas was inactive during the Patriots’ Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Enunwa only had one reception on three targets for minus-four yards and a fumble during the loss to the Bills.
