The Jets are holding their breath after WR Jamison Crowder walked off the practice field on Monday with an apparent left foot/ankle injury.
As SNY's Ralph Vacchiano witnessed, Crowder took a deep pass from Sam Darnold for a touchdown, but he wasn't celebrating. He began walking gingerly on his foot, and after trying to run on it, he was instead taken to the locker room with trainers to examine the injury.
This summer, the Jets brought Crowder in on a three-year, $28.5 million deal with $17 million guaranteed at signing. Head coach Adam Gase was excited about using Crowder in his offense, someone who he believes is one of the best slot receivers in the game and could open many things up for Darnold in the long run.
Crowder battled injuries last season with the Redskins, which included an ankle injury as well as hamstring issues that forced him to miss seven games. The Jets will hope that severity isn't the same here, though there is still much time before the regular season kicks off.
In Washington last year, the 26-year-old Crowder hauled in 29 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns.
