Jets WR Quincy Enunwa Feels 'Amazing' Preceding MetLife Bowl

Green & White Close Training Camp, WR Pryor Will Be Game-Time Decision  


Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa hasn't played in a game since January 1, 2017, but that could change Friday night against the crosstown Giants.

In his final press conference of this year's training camp, head coach Todd Bowles said there's a chance Enunwa will play in what many describe as the final dress rehearsal before the regular season. The 6'2", 225-pound Enunwa was sidelined for all of 2017 with a neck injury and part of training camp with a hand injury.

"Amazing," he said regarding his health. "I feel like I look amazing. I feel like I'm making plays, doing what I need to do. I feel that way, so it's just up to the training staff and Coach Bowles at the end of the day. It's their call."

Enunwa said he'd like to play in the preseason, but doesn't feel the need to get hit unlike like his teammate Teddy Bridgewater, who told the media he was excited to receive contact in Thursday's game against the Redskins.

"It's going to feel great," Enunwa said. "It's been awhile, but I've gotten a little bit of contact in practice, so it's nothing I haven't gotten. It'll feel good. I'll be happy to be out there with my brothers again, having fun and hopefully making some plays."

The fourth-year veteran flashed throughout camp with his speed and strength. The 26-year-old finished camp on a strong note and hopes to continue his development as a wideout. In 2016, Enunwa posted career numbers with 857 receiving yards and four touchdowns on 58 receptions.

"My confidence was high before I got hurt," the former sixth-round pick said. "I spent a lot of time while I was hurt getting my mind prepared for the game, the ups and the downs. I think when I came out, there was really nothing to hold me back from feeling the way I'm feeling now. Now it's just putting everything that's been going on, on the field. Each day I'm racking up days, building up confidence for myself, for the team and I'm just ready to go back out there."
