Perriman injured his knee while trying to block a 49ers defensive back on a pass play. Wilson sustained a concussion while trying to tackle Tevin Coleman on a run play. Wilson took a shot to the head area.
Injuries have killed the team the entire offseason. Because of Perriman’s injury, the Jets are down to three healthy receivers. All of them are on the field. No backups. Failing to get another wide receiver in the NFL draft hurts the Jets then and now.
Breshad Perriman was signed to a one-year deal this offseason to replace the departed Robby Anderson. Perriman was barely seen last week and actually began to get more targets this week. It’s important to know that Perriman has a history of inconsistency and injuries.
Quincy Wilson was traded to the Jets in the draft for a seventh-round pick. This helped reassure the cornerback room. Now, the team is down to backup Arthur Maulet on the bench. Nate Hairston is inactive.
The Jets are hurting and poor defensive & offensive performance doesn’t help.
Going into today’s game, Perriman took on being the Jets number one wide receiver. His injury will badly sting.
