Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa had a short stay on the team’s 53-man roster before being dropped to the practice squad when the team claimed former Cardinals wideout Walter Powell off waivers and his attempt to climb back up the ladder won’t be helped by the fact that he was arrested over the weekend.
TMZ reports that Enunwa was arrested on Sunday evening after getting into a fight at a New Jersey hotel. Enunwa, who was staying at the hotel, was reportedly charged with simple assault and his alleged victim suffered minor injuries that didn’t require a trip to the hospital. There’s no word on what touched off the altercation.
Jets coach Rex Ryan confirmed that Enunwa was arrested at his Wednesday press conference, but wouldn’t go into further details of what he referred to as an ongoing legal matter.
Enunwa was a sixth-round pick by the Jets in May after completing his career at Nebraska.
