Quincy Enunwa to miss season with neck injury

Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa missed the entire 2017 season with a neck injury and it looks like the Jets wideout is going to miss the final 15 games of this season for the same reason.

Brian Costello of the New York Post reported on Wednesday morning that Enunwa will miss the rest of the year after suffering another neck injury against the Bills in Week One. Head coach Adam Gase confirmed the news at his press conference a bit later in the morning.

Enunwa signed a four-year, $36 million extension with the team this offseason, but one has to wonder if Enunwa will be playing again after a second serious neck injury in three years.

The news comes a day after the Jets traded a 2021 sixth-round pick to the Patriots for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. While head coach Adam Gase’s criticism of wideouts seemed to explain that move, Enunwa’s injury makes the need for outside help at receiver even clearer.

Enunwa has been with the Jets since 2014 and has 119 catches, 1,617 yards and five touchdowns over the course of his career.

  1. Second one in three years; he’s likely done. I would imagine you don’t want to take your chances with an injury that serious. Crowder looked great in his debut, and having Demaryius Thomas line up opposite Robby Anderson will help the both of them. Add Herndon coming back in Week 5, and our receiving corps will be fine. Best wishes to Quincy on a speedy recovery.

  2. whew, it’s a good thing everyone’s favorite gm, mike maccagnan, re-signed this guy to a long term deal for absolutely zero reason.

  3. Next man up.

    Joe Douglas is fantastic and will find a way to clean up Mike Maccagnans disasters.

    Not sure how if its career ending how it will effect cap or if well get cleared on those charges? IDK

    Demaryius knows Gase system should fit in great. Crowder, Robby, Leveon is good to me.

  4. Those are pretty impressive numbers considering it feels like he’s played a combined total of ten games.
    Oh well. I hope this and previous one don’t jeopardize his future health. Good luck.

  5. Second one in three years; he’s likely done. I would imagine you don’t want to take your chances with an injury that serious.

Best wishes to Quincy on a speedy recovery.

    Wow last week Demaryius Thomas was over the hill when he was with the Pats and now your pinning your hopes on him.

  6. Two significant neck injuries? No need to risk paralysis and being able to enjoy the rest of your life. Retire and if you have to pay back the prorated amount of the signing bonus, you already have enough money to live a very high quality of life and never have to work another day.

    His contract has over $20 million guaranteed for injury, so he’s going to be ok financially.

    I just hope he fully recovers and can lead a normal life.
