As the Jets prepare for their preseason opener on Saturday August 12 against the Titans, we continue to provide you with the latest going on at Florham Park.
Enunwa Injures Neck – Placed on IR – OUT FOR SEASON
Saturday at practice, the New York Jets number one target at WR and a player the team was counting on to lead a young core of talented WR was injured during a 7-on-7 drill.
While running a slant toward the back of the end zone, Quincy Enunwa dropped a pass from Christian Hackenberg and hit the ground. He got up, took one step and then fell face-first onto the ground again. Trainers rushed out to the field and hovered over him for several minutes before he finally got up onto his knees and then walked slowly – but under his own power – to the Jets’ locker room.
According to 247sports, the Jets have place Enunwa on IR and he is out for the 2017 season.
QBs and Offense Improve in Green & White Scrimmage
Hackenberg went 3-5 for 45 yards and included a brilliant TD pass while evading defenders to rookie TE Jordan Leggett. “It was awesome. It was a heck of a throw. I think those are some of the things that get you excited about Hack,” said McCown about Hackenberg’s throw and performance.
The Jets are still concerned the Hackenberg holds on to the ball to long as the three sacks he took on Saturday night attest to, but coaches say he is light years ahead of where he was last season.
McCown completed 8-of-13 passes for 113 yards with two touchdowns (including a 55-yard bomb to Chris Harper) and an interception in 21 reps. Petty completed just four-of-12 passes for 44 yards, but he did engineer a 60-yard field goal drive on his second series.
“All three made some big completions at certain times,” Bowles said.
Maye Stands Out in Scrimmage
Marcus Maye continued his standout play so for this preseason when he intercepted a pass from Josh McCown and took it back 60-yds for a TD.
