According to multiple reports, former Huskers wide receiver and current New York Jet Quincy Enunwa suffered a neck injury during Saturday’s Green & White Practice/Scrimmage.
Enunwa went down while running a route during a seven-on-seven drill and eventually made his way off the field under his own power.
Enunwa suffered an injury to his neck and head area that cost him some time during the spring, and according to Jets coach Todd Bowles he suffered a similar injury on Saturday, although Bowles said he did not know about the severity.
Enunwa was drafted by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft and spent most of his first season on the practice squad. He earned his way onto the field in his second season, playing in 12 games with six starts and recording 22 catches for 315 yards.
Enunwa had a breakout season in 2016, catching 58 passes for a team-high 857 yards, and with veterans Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall moving on, Enunwa is the team’s clear No. 1 receiver heading into 2017.
