FLORHAM PARK, New Jersey – Wide successor Jamieson Crowder is expected to miss his second consecutive hamstring injury, the latest hurdle for the injured New York Jets.
The winding jets (0-2) will not have their three widest receivers and are going backwards when they face the Indianapolis Colts (1-1) on Sunday. Two launching offensive commanders are also unlikely to play.
Discussing potential substitutes for injuries, coach Adam Gaze said “whoever has a pulse right now” should be ready to play.
The Jets had hoped for Crowder’s return, but eight days had passed since the injury and he did not run.
“I just won̵
Breschad Periman, who sprained his ankle in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, is likely to miss at least two games. Wide recruit Denzel Mims, who is expected to play a prominent role, is in a contusion reserve with a lower leg injury. Their starting lineup on Sunday will be Chris Hogan, Braxton Berios and Josh Malone, who has also been out of the squad for the past three weeks.
Also in injury reserve began to withdraw Le’Veon Bell (hamstring), who was replaced by Frank Gore. They will expand the rotating rotation against the Colts, which could mean more wearing for rookie La’Mical Perine.
The offensive line was uninjured, but that changed on Sunday when center Connor McGovern (hamstring) left in the fourth quarter. He does not practice and appears to be able to dress as an emergency center on Sunday. Josh Andrews will replace him.
The right decision George Fant will not play after suffering a concussion on Wednesday in practice. He has encountered a backback and is in the concussion report. The Edoga Plague will start in its place.
“If I look at it, because we’re the only team going through this, it would be one thing, but when you look at the league, you see guys coming down left and right, whether it’s in practice or in games,” Gus said. “We have things that are happening to us with soft tissues. It seems that some other teams are experiencing big, big injuries from the end of the season.”
