Jets RB Crowell, WR Enunwa out vs. Texans with injuries
By DENNIS WASZAK Jr.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets will be without two key playmakers on offense against the Houston Texans.
Crowell, who is dealing with a toe ailment, leads the Jets with 685 yards rushing and six touchdowns. The game Saturday will mark the first the durable running back has missed in his five-year NFL career.
"He's hurt," coach Todd Bowles said Thursday. "There's nothing we can do about it. So, we just move on."
Elijah McGuire, who is questionable with an ankle injury, and rookie Trenton Cannon are expected to replace Crowell in the backfield.
"It's a good opportunity," Bowles said. "They've been playing some since they've been healthy. ... You like what you see, so they get a chance to prove themselves."
Enunwa has been sidelined this week by an ankle injury. He leads the Jets with 38 receptions despite missing two games earlier this season.
The Jets also announced that backup linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu will also be out with a concussion.
