New York Jets veteran wideout Quincy Enunwa doesn’t want to call it quits from the game of football just yet.

Quincy Enunwa has been no stranger to the injury bug in his still-young pro football career. He missed the entire 2017 season after the New York Jets placed him on injured reserve with bulging discs in his neck.

Then, during the Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills this year, Enunwa suffered an additional neck injury. The setback will cause him to miss the rest of the season.

So two neck injuries and essentially two lost seasons; do you think it’s time for Enunwa to call it quits?

Well, as a fan, you can think whatever you want. However, the man himself isn’t planning to retire and is still attempting to return to the game.

“I’m just working my way back,” Enunwa told Zach Braziller of the New York Post. “I plan to do whatever my body allows me to do. For me, it’s about going back out there and doing what I can to get back [on the field].”

Prior to exiting that Week 1 game, Enunwa had just one catch for minus-four yards. Right now, he’s anxious to play again but is staying upbeat through the entire process.

“It’s obviously very frustrating. To miss time again it’s going to be that much more frustrating,” he said. “I’m doing my best to stay positive and keep looking forward to the future.”

In his absence, the newly-acquired Jamison Crowder has emerged as the team’s leading receiver. Crowder has caught 53 balls on 73 targets for 562 yards and three touchdowns.
