Enunwa (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Enunwa was already ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Patriots, so the Jets are simply making the move to clear some roster space for healthy bodies. The 26-year-old inked a four-year, $36 million contract with the Jets on Friday, and had 38 receptions for 449 yards and one touchdown in 11 games this season.
The Jets and Enunwa (ankle) reached an agreement Friday on a contract extension, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports. With a four-year deal worth up to $36 million in hand, per ESPN.com, the 26-year-old will be a part of a Sam Darnold-led offense for the foreseeable future. In their first season together, Enunwa tended to a high-ankle sprain from Week 6 onward, missing five games along the way. When on the field, though, he recorded 38 catches (on 68 targets) for 449 yards and one touchdown in 11 contests. Looking ahead, Enunwa and Charone Peake are the only Jets wideouts under contract in 2019, though Robby Anderson will be a restricted free agent in the offseason.
Enunwa (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Patriots. Jermaine Kearse (Achilles) has also been ruled out, which sets the stage for Robby Anderson to head the Jets' wideout corps Sunday, with added reps on tap for Andre Roberts, Deontay Burnett and Charone Peake. The 26-year-old Enunwa, who is eligible to become a free agent this offseason, finishes up the 2018 campaign with 38 catches (on 68 targets) for 449 yards and a TD in 11 games.
Enunwa (ankle) wasn't seen at the early portion of Friday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Enunwa was given a "slim" chance of playing Week 17 on Monday and didn't participate at practice the last two days. The 26-year-old appears to be headed for his third straight absence, which could be confirmed when the Jets release their official injury report later Friday.
Enunwa (ankle) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. With back-to-back absences from practice to kick off Week 17, Enunwa hasn't done anything to improve his outlook from Monday, when coach Todd Bowles admitted the wideout had a "slim" chance of playing in the season finale Sunday against the Patriots. With Jermaine Kearse (Achilles) also in danger of missing that contest, added reps could be on tap for Andre Roberts, Charone Peake and Deontay Burnett alongside top target Robby Anderson.
