While head coach Adam Gase confirmed the terrible news that Quincy Enunwa was out for the season, he also revealed some other injury updates with his players heading into practice on Wednesday.
The two players we knew about -- LB C.J. Mosley and DT Quinnen Williams -- and both are "progressing really fast" with their ailments. Mosley came out late in the third quarter and missed the entire fourth quarter with a groin injury, while Williams is dealing with an ankle injury. He walked out of MetLife Stadium on Sunday in a walking boot.
Also, QB Sam Darnold was actually sent home today, as he continues to deal with an illness. Gase said his quarterback is still "kinda contagious," so it's more of a precautionary measure.
Then there's Jamal Adams, who isn't really dealing with an injury, but is more sore. Gase mentioned that soreness being in the hip/back area, but noted that Adams' competitive nature could have him back on the practice field today if he felt he was ready to go.
So, while Darnold and Adams seem -- as of now -- look like they should be available, it is worth watching Mosley and Williams. The rookie defensive tackle didn't get many reps, so he's presence wasn't really felt in his career debut. On the other hand, Mosley's presence in the middle of the defense was definitely missed during the Jets' fourth-quarter meltdown.
The Jets get an extra day thanks to Monday Night Football, so that bodes well for all that are banged up after Week 1. Time will certainly tell.
