According to Costello, this is the second serious neck injury Enunwa has suffered after he missed the entire 2017 season.
As of now, it’s unclear whether this injury is considered career-threatening.
This may explain why the Jets made the decision to trade a 2021 sixth-round pick to the Patriots for WR Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday.
You can expect the Jets to place Enunwa on injured reserve in the coming days.
Enunwa, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Jets back in 2014. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.995 million and made a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season before returning to the Jets on a one-year restricted deal worth $2.914 million.
The Jets re-signed him to a four-year, $36 million deal which included $20 million guaranteed.
In 2019, Enunwa appeared in one game for the Jets and caught one pass for -4 yards receiving.
