The Jets could be without one of their key offensive weapons for next week’s season opener.

According to NFL Media, wide receiver Jamison Crowder has tested positive for COVID-19.

It’s currently unclear whether or not Crowder is fully vaccinated. If he is, he’ll need just two negative tests a day apart to return to the building. If he’s unvaccinated, Crowder is out for a minimum of 10 days.

Crowder’s availability for New York’s Week One matchup with Carolina was already somewhat in question, as the receiver is dealing with a groin injury. In his Thursday press conference, head coach Robert Saleh called Crowder day-to-day.

Per the report, the Jets believe Crowder’s positive test is an isolated case.

Crowder is entering the final season of a three-year deal he signed with the Jets in 2019. He appeared in 12 games last year, making 59 receptions for 699 yards and six touchdowns. In 2019, he caught 78 passes for 833 yards and six TDs.

Crowder began his career with Washington as a fourth-round pick in 2015.

  1. I dont know if this changed, but early in covid, we were told that someone could continue to test positive after they were symptom free…. (Which is why we were told to not require a negative test in order to return to work)

  2. Just got word that two of my vaccinated friends got it at an event in Seattle. The event organizers promised they were taking precautions, but it looks like that was a superspreader event. For them getting infected amounted to having an annoying cold.

    I still have major concerns about the unvaxxed acting as hosts for new variants and strains of the virus, which cause vaccinated people to get sick. The unvaccinated people who are now crowding hospitals are making it difficult for people with other illnesses. Last year hospitals were so jammed that first responders were given orders that people who required immediate life-saving ER intervention, like someone who just had a heart attack, would have to be pronounced where they were. Hospital ERs didn’t have room for them. We’re seeing the same thing with unvaxxed people needing hospitalization. At some point we need to decide that dying from Covid goes along with their personal decision not to get vaccinated.

  3. “The Jets are going to start ott 0-2 again.” Please get to an elementary school immediately. Why are there so many dumb people in our country?

  4. Maybe someone can enlighten me.the nfl has endorsed and is profiting from legalized betting ..yet no one is entitled to know whether the Jets leading receiver from last year Jamison Crowder is eligible to play because we don’t know whether he is vaccinated..I don’t bet but how unfair is this?
