Seventh round pick wide receiver Quincy Enunwa missed some of practice today with a hip injury.
Rookie WR Quincy Enunwa has a hip injury, Rex said #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) July 24, 2014
This has led to me to speculate something, but Joe Caporoso of Turn on the Jets beat me to the punch.
Any lingering Enunwa injury opens up door for #Jets to stash him on IR & give redshirt season with no risk of hmi being being taken off PS— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) July 24, 2014
There is a logjam at the receiver position. It is not unheard of for teams to stick rookie longshots to make the roster on IR if they like their longterm potential. It might not be an injury that would normally end a player's season, but that does not matter. As Joe mentioned, it takes away the risk of another team snatching that player off the practice squad.
It's worth keeping an eye on.
