Jets rookie WR Elijah Moore (quadriceps) placed on IR

New York Jets rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore was placed on injured reserve Saturday with an ailing quadriceps.

Moore, who will miss at least the next three games, did not practice this week after sustaining the injury in New York’s 33-18 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

The second-round pick of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Mississippi has recorded team-leading totals in catches (43), receiving yards (538) and receiving touchdowns (five).

Corey Davis, who is second on the club in all three categories, was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday after core muscle surgery.

The Jets (3-9) likely will lean on wideouts Jamison Crowder and Keelan Cole on Sunday against the visiting New Orleans Saints (5-7).

Jets WR Corey Davis to have season-ending hip surgery

New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis will have season-ending core muscle surgery on Tuesday.

Davis, 26, has battled hip and groin injuries this season after signing a three-year, $37.5 million deal in March.

A team captain, Davis caught two passes for 15 yards in Sunday’s 33-18 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and finishes the season with 34 receptions for 492 yards and four touchdowns in nine starts.

“I feel awful for Corey. He’s one of the true pros in this league, goes about his business the right way,” Jets coach Robert Saleh told reporters Monday afternoon. “Shows up every day to work, he does everything the right way.”

A first-round pick (fifth overall) by Tennessee in 2017, Davis had 207 catches for 2,851 yards and 11 touchdowns in 56 games (48 starts) with the Titans.

Jets WR Corey Davis (hip flexor) questionable for Sunday

New York Jets wide receiver Corey Davis sustained a hip-flexor injury in practice Thursday and is questionable to play Sunday against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals.

“It’s not looking good,” coach Robert Saleh told reporters Friday. “We’re still holding out hope, but it’s trending in that direction.”

The Jets (1-5) are already short-handed on offense, as rookie quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) will not play against the Bengals (5-2). Backup Mike White will get the start over recently acquired Joe Flacco at quarterback.

Davis leads New York in receptions (24), receiving yards (349) and touchdown catches (four) through six games.

Davis, 26, signed a three-year, $37.5 million deal with the Jets in March after playing his first four seasons with the Tennessee Titans. The 2017 first-round pick (fifth overall) has 231 career catches for 3,200 yards and 15 scores in 62 games.

The New York Jets agreed to a three-year, $37.5 million deal with wide receiver Corey Davis on Monday night, according to multiple media outlets.

The deal includes $27 million in guarantees, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported.

Davis, 26, caught 65 passes for 984 yards and five touchdowns last season with the Tennessee Titans. It was his fourth season in Tennessee, where he amassed 207 catches for 2,851 yards and 11 touchdowns in 56 career games (48 starts).

The Titans drafted Davis with the fifth overall pick out of Central Michigan in 2017.

The Jets are looking to upgrade their offense after a 2-14 campaign last season. New York holds the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft and could select a quarterback in the top three picks for the second time in four years.

Titans WR Davis expected to play after brother’s death

Wide receiver Corey Davis is expected to play Thursday night when the Tennessee Titans host the Indianapolis Colts, one day after the death of his brother, NFL reporter Paul Kuharsky said.

Titus Davis, 27, passed away Wednesday of renal medullary carcinoma, a rare form of kidney disease.

Titus played football at Central Michigan (2011-14) and was a four-time All-Mid-American Conference selection. He ranks first in Chippewas history in receiving yards (3,700) and touchdown receptions (37) — breaking Antonio Brown’s records in both categories — and is fourth in receptions (204). He spent time on the practice squad of four NFL teams.

Corey Davis, who played at Western Michigan, credited his big brother for inspiring him to play football.

“He’s the sole reason I’m playing this sport today,” Corey Davis told the Detroit Free Press in 2016. “We’re always working and getting better together. He’s helped me, even when I was at Western, and he was at Central. He’s helped me find things I need to do better and improve on.”

The younger Davis was the No. 5 overall selection of the Titans in the 2017 NFL Draft. In six starts this season, he has 29 catches for 369 yards and three touchdowns.

Titans WR Brown (knee) ruled out vs. Jaguars

Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has been ruled out for this weekend’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, coach Mike Vrabel announced Friday.

Brown is nursing a bone bruise in his knee, an injury that was sustained in Tennessee’s 16-14 season-opening victory over the Denver Broncos on Monday night.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Brown is likely considered week-to-week with the injury.

Brown, 23, reeled in five catches for 39 yards in the season opener. He had 52 receptions for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns during his rookie season in 2019.

Tennessee likely will look to Corey Davis in the passing game, but the wideout is dealing with a troublesome hamstring after leading the team with seven catches for 101 yards in the opener. Davis was limited Thursday after missing Wednesday’s practice.

Davis, 25, had 43 catches for 601 yards and two touchdowns last season.

The Titans will look to claim the early advantage in the AFC South on Sunday when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0).

Report: Titans WR Brown (knee) could miss multiple games

Tennessee Titans standout wide receiver A.J. Brown did not practice Thursday and could miss multiple games with a knee bruise, ESPN reported.

Brown is likely to be “week to week,” per the report.

Starting wideout Corey Davis (hamstring) was limited Thursday after missing Wednesday’s practice.

However, OLB Vic Beasley was a full participant in practice for the first time since joining the team.

Davis led the team in the Week 1 win over the Denver Broncos with seven catches for 101 yards. He and Brown both had eight targets, with Brown reeling in five catches for 39 yards.

Brown had a tremendous rookie season in 2019, catching 52 passes for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns. Davis, in his fourth season with the Titans, had 43 catches for 601 yards and two TDs last season.

The Titans promoted Nick Westbrook-Ikhine from the practice squad on Wednesday.

Starting right tackle Taylor Lewan (illness) did not practice Thursday, and RB Darrynton Evans (hamstring) was downgraded to limited after full participation Wednesday.

Edge rushers Jadeveon Clowney and Beasley were both upgraded to full participation while starting cornerback Malcolm Butler (quad) was an addition to the injury report. He was limited.

Beasley is on track to make his Titans debut Sunday when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Titans promote WR with Davis, Brown banged up

Tennessee Titans wideouts Corey Davis and A.J. Brown showed up on the injury report Wednesday, prompting the team to promote a wide receiver from the practice squad.

Davis (hamstring) did not practice and Brown (knee) was limited. The Titans promoted Nick Westbrook-Ikhine from the practice squad again, as they did Monday night prior to their opener against the Denver Broncos.

Davis led the team in the win over the Broncos with seven catches for 101 yards. He and Brown both had eight targets, with Brown reeling in five catches for 39 yards. Jonnu Smith and MyCole Pruitt caught TD passes from Ryan Tannehill.

Brown had a tremendous rookie season in 2019, catching 52 passes for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns. Davis, in his fourth season with the Titans, had 43 catches for 601 yards and two TDs last season.

In other Titans injury news, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney (hip) and linebacker Vic Beasley (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday.

However, running back Darrynton Evans (hamstring), linebacker Derick Roberson (knee) and offensive lineman Jamil Douglas (hand) all returned to full practice after missing Week 1.

The Titans host the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0) on Sunday in a divisional game.
