Jets rule out top two receivers for Week 17 vs Patriots

Share

Ahead of the regular season finale between the Patriots and Jets, New York has listed four of their key players as out, including their two top receivers Quincy Enunwa and Jermaine Kearse. 

Starting outside corner Morris Claiborne and rotational linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis are also out. 

Enunwa recorded 73 yards on four catches against the Patriots in November. Kearse caught six passes for 66 yards and a touchdown. Not having two trusted receivers is not an ideal situation for rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. 

The Patriots could clinch the top seed in the AFC playoffs with a win and losses by the Chargers and Chiefs. New England should be able to take care of business pretty easily Sunday against the lowly Jets, but four key injuries could help put all the pressure on Kansas City and LA.
