Enunwa (neck) had a post-surgery doctor's appointment Monday in which an "X-ray looked really good," Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Two months removed from the procedure on a bulging disk in his neck, Enunwa is on course in his recovery. While he won't return this season, he expects to return to health in advance of the 2018 campaign. In the meantime, the Jets will continue to lean on wideouts Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and Jeremy Kerley.
Enunwa suffered a non-contact injury during the Jets' green-and-white scrimmage in early August, which was eventually revealed to be a bulging disk. After a procedure to repair the issue, he was in line for a 6-9 month recovery, effectively ruling him out for the season. Now officially on IR, the receiving corps will be in the hands of Robby Anderson and newcomer Jermaine Kearse at the outset of the season.
Enunwa had successful surgery to repair the bulging disk in his neck/back, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
While already ruled out for the season and likely to be placed on injured reserve in the coming weeks, Enunwa plans to spend a lot of time around the team as he prepares for a comeback in 2018. The estimated recovery timetable of six-to-nine months could allow for full participation next offseason. He'll be approximately eight months removed from the surgery when the Jets begin their offseason program in April.
Enunwa will have surgery to repair a bulging disk in his neck next week, NJ.com reports.
Enunwa has already been ruled out for the season because of his injury, which could require a recovery timeline of up to nine months, but the issue is not expected to be career-threatening. Enunwa's absence atop the Jets' wide receiver depth chart is a big blow to the team, as Robbie Anderson, Jalin Marshall and a host of other receivers will try to make up the void.
