The Jets are going to be without wide receiver Breshad Perriman, safety Bradley McDougald and linebacker Blake Cashman. In addition, wide receiver Jamison Crowder and kicker Sam Ficken are listed as doubtful and are expected to miss the game. Offensive linemen Conor McDermott and Josh Andrews, linebacker Jordan Jenkins and running back Frank Gore are all listed as questionable.
The injuries to Crowder and Perriman leave the Jets with Denzel Mims, Braxton Berrios, Vyncint Smith and Jeff Smith as Sam Darnold’s primary targets at wide receiver. Suffice it to say that group does not inspire confidence in the Jets’ chances of keeping pace with the Chiefs’ turbocharged offense.
Former CFL and XFL kicker Sergio Castillo was called up from the practice squad for last week’s game against the Bills to replace Ficken. He is likely to take on the kicking duties again against the Chiefs.
For the Chiefs, offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz and wide receiver Sammy Watkins are the only players listed on the final injury report. Both are out for the game.
