Jets’ top WR duo likely out Sunday vs. Colts
New York Jets coach Adam Gase is looking to “whoever’s got a pulse” to play wide receiver in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Top wideout Jamison Crowder (hamstring) is expected to miss his second consecutive game, Breshad Perriman (ankle) didn’t practice Thursday and likely will miss at least two games, and Chris Hogan (ribs) was limited in practice, but is expected to play Sunday. Perriman was injured last week against the San Francisco 49ers.
Rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims is already on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
“Whoever’s got a pulse right now, we’re ready to go,” Gase said Thursday.
Hogan, Braxton Berrios and Josh Malone are expected to be the starting WRs Sunday. Lawrence Cager could get a call-up from the practice squad.
Le’Veon Bell is on injured reserve, with veteran Frank Gore getting elevated at running back.
Further, right tackle George Fant is in the concussion protocol after a collision in Wednesday’s practice and center Connor McGovern (hamstring) has not practiced. Tackle Mekhi Becton (shoulder) has been limited. All three starters are questionable for the game.
As it is, the Jets enter Week 3 with the second-worst passing offense in the NFL at 394 total passing yards after two games.
