Enunwa has hip injury

Rookie wide reciever Quincy Enunwa has a hip injury, Rex Ryan said on Thursday.

Enunwa, a 6-2, 225-pound wide receiver, set Nebraska’s single-season receiving touchdown record last season, when he reeled in 12.

“He went through individual [drills], and then really couldn’t do the team [practice periods],” Rex Ryan told reporters after practice concluded. “I don’t know the severity of that injury. I don’t think it’s that severe of an injury, but we’ll certainly lean on the trainers and things.”

The Jets selected Enunwa with the No. 209 pick in the NFL Draft. Enunwa ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.45 seconds.

Scouts say that he is big, tough, athletic and a fit with the Jets as a West Coast receiver who seemed to take a step forward as a senior. At his size and speed, Enunwa is a versatile receiver who can line up anywhere in the formation. Some scouts even consider Enunwa as a potential H-Back.

Sitting in the press room, Rex didn’t sound too concerned about Enunwa so we’ll see how much Enunwa participates tomorrow.

If Enunwa can get healthy he will have a good shot at making some noise in training camp.  The Jets have some players his size, but he seems like he might have the most upside of the group.

That sucks. A hammy all off season and now a hip.

Hopefully it's just a one or 2 day thing.  Injuries in the areas where there are a ton of guys competing is a killer to your chances of making the team.

Had a good time at camp today. I had Manish and Cimini about 5 feet in front of me separated by a rope fence.  A few of us gave them some crap.


I will leave the scouting reports to Bassett and Co. but I will say Evans and Decker looked good.

like a BAD hip injury? Nobody has a clue of the severity of the injury? Did he walk off the field and say my hip hurts? Or did he fall to the floor in agony?

Belichick would have put him on IR already.  Within seconds.

@tsjc68  I saw the deep ball catch and another one. Must have been watching the D for the drops.
