General manager Joe Douglas said the Jets hope Enunwa (neck) is ready for the 2020 season, and they want him in New York if he is, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Enunwa sustained his second serious neck injury in three years when he was hurt in Week 1, and there haven't been any notable reports on his medical recovery. However, Enunwa is signed through the 2022 season with over $20 million in guaranteed cash, so the Jets would predictably like him to come back healthy. The 27-year-old played 11 games in the 2018 season, recording 38 receptions for 449 yards and a score.

The Jets placed Enunwa (neck) on injured reserve Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Enunwa done for the season, the newly-acquired Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) now has a chance to secure a key role in the Jets' passing attack alongside fellow field-stretching threat Robby Anderson and slot man Jamison Crowder. Enunwa's future in football is murky while he contends with his second significant neck injury in three years.

Enunwa suffered neck injury in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bills and will be shut down for the rest of the season, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets' acquisition Tuesday of Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) had already cast some doubt on Enunwa's status as a starter, but no competition for reps between the two will happen now that Enunwa has been shuttered for the season Enunwa was sent in for further testing Monday, and while the Jets determined he was dealing with a serious injury, it's unclear at this time if his latest setback with his neck is career-threatening. Enunwa previously missed the entire 2017 season due to a bulging disc in his neck that surfaced in training camp that year, but after returning healthy in 2018, he inked a four-year, $36 million contract extension in late December. Assuming he's healthy in his own right, Thomas could immediately take on a sizable snap share in Week 2 against the Browns, working alongside deep threat Robby Anderson and slot specialist Jamison Crowder.

Enunwa caught one of three targets for minus-4 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Owners hoping for Enunwa to turn things up in the regular season after a quiet preseason were left disappointed. He also briefly went to the blue injury tent but promptly returned, so the injury-prone wideout may have picked up a knock in this one in addition to his struggles.

Enunwa failed to haul in his lone target in Saturday's 28-13 preseason loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Enunwa hasn't been able to get going this preseason, but the most important thing for him is staying healthy, which he has been able to do. The physical wideout should see a healthy dose of targets from quarterback Sam Darnold once the games start to count.

Enunwa (groin) failed to haul in his lone target in Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Quarterback Sam Darnold targeted Enunwa on his first pass of the game, but the ball never got to the receiver and was instead almost intercepted by safety Jabrill Peppers. The most important news here is that Enunwa was out there for the opening drive along with the rest of the Jets' starters, suggesting the minor groin injury he suffered in practice Tuesday is behind him.

Enunwa (groin) is uniform for Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

That's a bit of a surprise, considering that Enunwa recently tweaked his groin in practice, but evidently the issue was a minor one. It remains to be see how much action Enunwa might see Thursday, but the fact that he's suited up for the contest represents good news for the Jets.

Enunwa is slated to have tests after leaving Tuesday's practice with a groin injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The report relays that coach Adam Gase doesn't sound overly concerned about Enunwa's injury, given that the wideout wanted to return to practice after his exit Tuesday, but this remains a situation to monitor. Enunwa is listed as a starting wideout along with Robby Anderson and slot man Jamison Crowder on the Jets' unofficial training camp depth chart, which was posted Monday.

Enunwa was forced to leave Tuesday's practice due to a possible groin injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It looks like the injury was non-contact, which certainly isn't a good sign for Enunwa, who pulled up limping after running for a deep ball. Given the potential seriousness of the injury, the Jets will likely exercise plenty of caution with Enunwa, whom they just signed to a four-year, $36 million contract extension at the end of last season.

The Jets signed slot receiver Jamison Crowder to join Enunwa and Robby Anderson in their wideout corps, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini and John Keim report.

EDGE Analysis

Enunwa has experience playing all over the field, but he's typically done his best work from the slot where he can use his 225-pound frame to pile up yards after the catch. Of course, he should be more comfortable outside with a full offseason to hone his craft, and he'll have job security after signing a four-year, $36 million extension in December. The additions of Crowder and running back Le'Veon Bell equate to a massive increase in competition for targets, but Enunwa should be cutting his slice from a bigger pie now that Sam Darnold has some experience as well as a promising group of pass catchers.
