Quincy Enunwa (neck) anticipates being able to participate in OTAs later this month.

"I think I'll be able to go," Enunwa said. "I think we'll be smart about it. I think I'm going to go out there and do what I need to do." Enunwa missed all of last season and needed surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck. It's a dicey situation, but Enunwa said he believes he's at or near 100 percent. The Jets have a crowded receiver room, but Enunwa is arguably the best if healthy.
May 9 - 10:25 AM

Jets re-signed WR Quincy Enunwa to a one-year, $2.914 million contract.

Enunwa was a restricted free agent after missing all of last season to repair a bulging disc in his neck. He now has full range of motion and will be eased into offseason activities, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Jets have Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, and Terrelle Pryor all competing with Enunwa.
Apr 4 - 11:52 AM

Jets extended restricted free agent WR Quincy Enunwa a second-round tender.

The tender is worth upwards of $3 million and indicates Enunwa is recovering well from neck surgery. If healthy, Enunwa will return as one of the Jets' top-three receivers along with Robby Anderson and possibly Jermaine Kearse.

Quincy Enunwa underwent successful surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck on Tuesday.

The surgery comes with a 6-9 month recovery. Headed for free agency this offseason, it's uncertain what the future holds for Enunwa, who led the Jets with a career-best 857 receiving yards in 2016. Neck injuries are notoriously difficult to recover from.

Jets WR Quincy Enunwa will undergo surgery for the bulging disk in his neck next week.

As many former players can tell you, neck surgery is no laughing matter for an NFLer. The Jets pegged Enunwa's initial timeline at 6-9 months. It's unclear if that included surgery or not, but it likely did. Enunwa turns 26 next May, when he should be near the end of his recovery.

Quincy Enunwa's year-ending injury is a bulging disk in his neck.

Coach Todd Bowles revealed Enunwa won't be cleared for another 6-9 months. Enunwa broke out for over 800 receiving yards in 2016, and 2017 was set to be his contract year. It's a huge missed opportunity for the run-after-catch maven.

Jets placed WR Quincy Enunwa on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Unbelievable. Enunwa, the Jets' clear-cut No. 1 receiver, was injured in a team scrimmage on Saturday. It leaves second-year UDFA Robby Anderson as Gang Green's No. 1. It's a positively cataclysmic situation for a team that should be amongst the most unwatchable in league history this season. As for Enunwa, it's devastating news that wipes out his age-25 campaign. Neck injuries are arguably the trickiest in all of football. His status beyond 2017 should be considered uncertain.

Coach Todd Bowles said that "something went wrong" with Jets WR Quincy Enunwa's neck when he fell in Saturday's practice.

Enunwa fell in 7-on-7 drills and had to go to the locker room. Bowles believes the injury is similar to an ailment that cost Enunwa minicamp reps in June. A neck injury has a wide range of potential outcomes, so it may be best to wait until an official statement is released before adjusting fantasy draft boards.

Quincy Enunwa (neck) is sitting out mandatory minicamp.

There's been no indication it's a serious issue. With Eric Decker no longer a Jet, Enunwa is officially Gang Green's No. 1 receiver. He'll be dealing with horrific quarterback play, but is in the WR3 mix.
Tue, Jun 13, 2017 04:23:00 PM

Following the news of Eric Decker's impending departure, Quincy Enunwa is expected to be the Jets' No. 1 receiver this season.

Enunwa and Robby Anderson are penciled in as the Jets' Nos. 1 and 2 wideouts, with rookie ArDarius Stewart as the favorite for No. 3 duties. Decker averaged seven targets per game when he was healthy last season, and Brandon Marshall averaged 8.5. Both are gone. Enunwa returns as the leader in the clubhouse after seeing 105 passes his way. It's not out of the question that he could see 130-plus in 2017. He's a WR3 with WR2 upside.

Quincy Enunwa said new OC John Morton's offense is "predicated (on) getting the ball out fast."

"I think it's a good opportunity for guys to get the ball and make plays. It's also a great opportunity for us to not get as many turnovers," Enunwa said. "I think everybody is kind of buying in." The receiver added there are fewer option routes in the new offense, saying receivers have "to do exactly what is given to you." That simplicity could be good for the Jets' young quarterbacks, although veteran Josh McCown is fully expected to open the season as the starter. With just Eric Decker ahead of him, Enunwa is a good bet to better 100 targets again this season.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano suggests Quincy Enunwa could be the Jets' No. 1 receiver this season.

It's contingent on Eric Decker's (shoulder, hip) health, of course, but otherwise Enunwa's target competition consists of a slew of rookies and unproven pass catchers. Enunwa says he felt "limited" by ex-OC Chan Gailey's scheme and expects to play more X receiver this year, in addition to slot duties. Coming off a 58/857/4 breakout season, Enunwa makes for an intriguing late-round pick in best-ball leagues, where he is severely underpriced.

Quincy Enunwa nabbed five-of-eight targets for 81 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

He'll finish the year with a team-high 857 yards on 58 catches. Enunwa played a bigger role than expected this year largely due to Eric Decker’s season-ending shoulder injury. He topped 90 yards three times with his best game coming against New England in Week 12. Considering how poorly the Jets fared at quarterback this year, the fact that Enunwa was even remotely productive is a minor miracle. His target share could be even larger next year if the Jets move on from Brandon Marshall, which seems likely.

Quincy Enunwa reeled in one-of-five targets for 30 yards and rushed once for 12 yards Saturday in the Jets' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

He only caught one pass, but at least it was the Jets’ longest gain of the afternoon. Enunwa has averaged 33.3 receiving yards during his four-game touchdown drought. With the Jets seemingly in tank mode, we’re guessing Enunwa will be in for another rough game next week versus Buffalo.
