Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa revealed on Twitter last week that doctors told him there was only a 50-50 chance that he would be able to come back and play with his injury. Enunwa was placed on injured reserve after re-injuring in his neck in Week 1 this season.
Despite that news, Enugwa plans to return to the field and continue his once promising career.
Enunwa made headlines last week for voicing his frustrations with the Jets after he was fined for missing a rehab appointment. On Twitter, he revealed the seriousness of the injury and how committed he was to getting back out there.
New York signed Enugwa to a four-year, $36 million contract last December. The way the deal is structured should keep the Jets from releasing him in the offseason. While his release would save the team $2.4 million in cap space, they would incur $5.4 million in dead money.
Through 16 games in 2016, he caught 58 passes for 857 yards. A serious neck injury kept him out for all of 2017 and last season, he caught 38 receptions for 449 yards in 11 games.
