Adam Schefter reports Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who is dealing with a knee injury, will likely play but have limited snaps in today’s game against the Chiefs.
Even though Jets WR Brandon Marshall expected to be active today, he likely will be on snap count due to foot/knee injury. Weather also bad.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 25, 2016
If this is the case, you have to wonder how effective Marshall will be. Would the Jets simply be using him as a decoy to draw attention? How much is the weather playing a factor here? If the weather is bad enough, should the Jets even be risking having Marshall out there at all rather than resting him and allowing him to get healthy for the long run? We don’t know the answers to any of these questions right now. The Jets might not either.
In any event, Marshall being limited at all in this game would be a big hit in what does not figure to be an easy road game. Quincy Enunwa, Jalin Marshall, and Robby Anderson will need to step up for the Jets.
