Enunwa (thumb) is in uniform for Thursday's preseason game against Washington, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.
That said, previous reports suggested that the wideout wasn't expected to play, a notion echoed by Brian Costello of the New York Post. Enunwa is thus a very risky roll in DFS formats this week.
Enunwa is slated to sit out the next 1-2 weeks due to a thumb injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
After failing to practice Wednesday with an undisclosed injury, Enunwa was seen on the side at Thursday's session with a wrap on his right hand, according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic New York. During media availability, coach Todd Bowles termed Enunwa's issue a "sore" hand, which has been clarified further as a thumb concern. Enunwa's timetable for a return all but ensures he'll miss the Jets' first preseason game Friday, Aug. 10, giving him a maximum of two chances to stake a claim to a top spot in the receiving corps during exhibition season.
Enunwa missed Wednesday's practice due to an injury unrelated to his neck, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Enunwa had restrictions throughout the offseason program and into the start of training camp, finally gaining clearance for full participation without a no-contact jersey Saturday. While obviously not ideal, a new injury at least is preferable to a setback with the bulging disc that wiped out his entire 2017 campaign. Enunwa likely will compete for the No. 3 receiver job with Terrelle Pryor (ankle), who took part in team drills Wednesday for the first time since joining the Jets. Head coach Todd Bowles declined to elaborate on the nature of Enunwa's new injury.
Enunwa (neck) isn't practicing Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports
Enunwa has been in and out of the practice lineup through the first six days of training camp, including one outing Saturday without a no-contact jersey. With the Jets not reporting any kind of setback, this is probably just part of the plan to ease Enunwa back into action after he missed all of last year. There's still some question about the long-term stability of his neck, in addition to his uncertain place in a receiving corps that also includes Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Terrelle Pryor (neck). Enunwa's experience working the slot would seem to make him a strong fit for the No. 3 job, but the Jets probably wouldn't have given Pryor a one-year, $4.5 million contract if they were truly confident in Enunwa's ability to stay healthy and productive. Anderson and Kearse are the safe bets for steady playing time.
Enunwa (neck) was a full go at Saturday's practice, Andy Vasquez of NorthJersey.com reports.
Enunwa did not sport a red, no-contact jersey at Saturday's, a great sign towards his eventual return to regular season action. The 26-year-old wideout missed all of last season with a bulging disc in his neck after having a miniature breakout season in 2016, recording 58 catches for 857 yards and four touchdowns. Enunwa will join new arrival Terrelle Pryor and Robby Anderson in the Jets' receiving corps, with the opportunity to see significant action if he can return to form.
