Coach Todd Bowles revealed that Enunwa (concussion) will not play in Saturday's preseason tilt with the Giants, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Enunwa has been desperately trying to work his way back onto the practice field, but with the league's stiff regulation of concussions, the 24-year-old will have to sit out Saturday's much anticipated dress rehearsal. For the most part, the Jets don't appear to be too worried about his absence thanks to the existences of both Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. But at the same time, the Jets are counting on Enunwa to step up as the team's clear cut third receiver. The expectation is that Enunwa will be ready to go for the regular season opener, but Kenbrell Thompkins and Kyle Williams will likely fill his void in the meantime.
Forte (hamstring) said he will play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, The Record reports.
Forte was held out of the Jets' first two preseason contests, but he'll make his likely sole appearance before the regular season after returning to normal practice this week. Forte is expected to handle a bulk of the carries this season, so getting him some game reps before Week 1 was important.
Robinson (lower leg) won't take the field for Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars.
Just three days removed since his activation from the PUP list, Robinson will be held out as he builds up his workload in advance of the regular season. While it's unclear if he'll log any exhibition snaps over the next month, he'll serve as one of Matt Forte's (hamstring) primary backups with Bilal Powell.
Revis (wrist) took part in team drills at Saturday's practice, Seth Walder of New York Daily News reports.
Revis has slowly built up his rep count as he recovers from offseason wrist surgery, but participation in the team portion of practice was the last hurdle in the rehab process. With the development behind him, he should resume his status as one of the NFL's top cover cornerbacks.
Richardson (suspension) returned to practice Tuesday after a brief excused absence, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Richardson was excused from practice for personal reasons over the weekend by coach Todd Bowles, but was able to return Tuesday. The Jets will be without Richardson for Week 1 due to a suspension, but they should have their starting defensive end throughout the remainder of training camp.
When asked Sunday for a timetable for his return to full action, Mitchell -- who dislocated his left elbow on Aug. 11 -- said he didn't "have an answer for that," CSN New England reports.
On the plus side, Mitchell -- who has returned to the practice field in a limited capacity -- while sporting a large brace around his elbow, noted Sunday that he's "feeling good...feeling a lot better than the day it happened." Once he's able to play without restrictions, Mitchell could emerge as a candidate to claim the Patriots' "X" receiver role, but for now his early-season fantasy upside is somewhat stalled by his elbow issue. Beyond that, it may take some in-season injuries for Mitchell to merit lineup consideration, given that there are plenty of other options in the Patriots' passing attack, namely fellow wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan (and Danny Amendola to a lesser degree), as well as the team's talented tight end combo of Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.
Ninkovich, who tore his triceps on Aug. 9, was present at the start of Sunday's practice before moving on to the Patriots' lower field to do conditioning work, ESPN.com reports.
Initial Boston Herald reports suggested that Ninkovich's return would be a matter of "weeks, not months." While it's unclear when the defensive end might be able to practice fully, his presence on the field Sunday, in any capacity, is a positive sign nonetheless.
Williams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.
As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.
Brady (suspension) is on track to play in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers, CSN New England reports.
It's unclear whether Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo will start Friday's contest -- or how many series either player will be out there -- but the plan is evidently for Brady to get some live tune-up reps in the Patriots' preseason dress rehearsal. Beyond Friday, we'd expect Brady to be held out of the team's preseason finale, and in such a scenario, his next chance to see game action won't arrive until Week 5 of the regular season due to his impending four-game suspension.
