Jets WRs Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa questionable vs. Dolphins
The New York Jets receiving corps has been rather thin over the last few weeks. Among their notable absences from last game include wide receivers Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa.
Unfortunately, it remains to be seen whether or not they will be able to return in Week 9. According to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk, both Anderson and Enunwa are listed as questionable with ankle injuries:
The team has listed Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa as questionable to play after both returned for a limited practice on Friday. Both players are dealing with ankle injuries, although Enunwa has been out of the lineup longer than Anderson.
This is certainly not the most encouraging updated. The Jets have been noticeably shorthanded throughout the 2018 NFL season. It has taken its toll on the offense and, more importantly, Sam Darnold.
Prior to the injury, Enunwa had established himself as a bit of a safety net for Darnold, however, his production has dwindled massively due to his inability to stay healthy. Meanwhile, Anderson’s rapport with Darnold got off to a bit of a slow start. Fortunately, their connection has started to show plenty of promise after several big plays this season. The return of either one of these players would be extremely beneficial for the rookie quarterback.
For now, New York will plan to rely on a motley crew of wideouts much like they did last week. Wide receivers Jermaine Kearse and Deontay Burnett led the way against the Chicago Bears albeit in limited fashion. Darnold will need at least one of his unproven wideouts to step up if Anderson or Enunwa are unable to go.
