New York Jets’ veteran wide receiver Quincy Enunwa, who suffered a season-ending neck injury, is blasting the team on social media after being hit with a fine for missing medical treatments, according to ESPN’s Rick Cimini.
Enunwa says that he missed two treatments, scheduled on November 8th and November 11th, and was fined $27,900, which is the maximum allowed under the collective bargaining agreement, fines Enunwa called “excessive.”
Enunwa, 27, is currently on injured reserve.
Enunwa says that he missed Monday’s treatment because he took his mother, a veteran, our to lunch for Veteran’s Day. Enunwa explains that he missed November 8th’s treatment because he “had to handle an emergency in my house”.
“Given everything that’s going on around the team I thought this could’ve been handled so many different ways,” Enunwa tweeted. “I’ve spent my time with the team trying to build myself up to be dependable and hardworking so this s— hurts.”
“The biggest reason is hurts is that I’m on IR for the second time in my career and the doctor told me I have a 50/50 chance of coming back to play,” Enunwa said. “I shouldn’t even have to be in that building being reminded every day of what I can’t do.
“This s— feels like punishment already and then they FINE me the max. And then want me to continue to do my rehab there and IF I get healthy they want me to play for them after.
“I’m not writing this for sympathy and never wanted to even say anything, but when multiple teammates are coming up to me saying it’s f—– up I don’t care to sit on it anymore.”
The Jets have declined to comment.
Jets’ Le’Veon Bell Discusses Bowling Trip Distraction
New York Jets’ running back Le’Veon Bell has been under heavy criticism for going bowling on Saturday night despite having the flu, which caused him to miss Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins because he was too sick.
The bowling trip has been a topic of discussion, and Jets’ head coach Adam Gase said that the incident was a bad optic for Bell and the organization.
For his part, Bell has no regrets, joking that he bowled a career-high 251 “coming off the flu.”
“I don’t feel bad about what I did,” Bell said, according to ESPN’s Rich Cimini. “I didn’t break any rules. I wasn’t a distraction until now.”
But Bell didn’t just discuss the bowling trip, he also aired out his frustrations with the Jets offense, saying that he feels underutilized and saying this wasn’t the first time he had voiced his feelings on the offense. Bell was then asked if he felt he had been given the opportunity to thrive.
“Honestly, no. I think that’s just being in a new system, with new guys up front, a new coaching staff. I’m with a new organization. Everything kind of takes time. I understand that. That’s why I’ve always been patient.
“But to be honest with you, no. I feel like when I do, I’ll be back to what people are used to seeing.”
“I don’t like to keep harping on the same thing,” Bell said. “I said what I said. We had the conversation. That was that. I’m not about to have the same conversations over and over. We both understand each other. As time goes on, things will get better.”
Bell and Gase discussed the incident, with Gase opting not to punish Bell for bowling.
“They weren’t sure about my energy and hydration, so they held me out of the game,” Bell said. “But they advised me to get out of the house and move a little bit. I had a lot of family and friends there because they were expecting me to play. Everybody was at my house, just kind of looking at me. I felt better, I felt a lot better, so we went out bowling and had fun.”
Bell may be one-and-done with the Jets after signing a four-year, $52.5 million contract in March to join the team in free agency.
Jets’ Jamal Adams Rips Jets’ General Manager
New York Jets safety Jamal Adams is not too happy with general manager Joe Douglas, and the organization, after the team tried to deal Adams ahead of the NFL trade deadline despite Adams’ saying he expressed his desire to remain with the team during a meeting with Douglas and Jets’ head coach Adam Gase.
According to ESPN, the Jets had received an offer from the Dallas Cowboys of a 1st round draft pick for the Pro Bowl Adams, and were also engaged in talks with the Baltimore Ravens.
Adams didn’t hold back when addressed the situation on Twitter.
Any reports of me asking to be traded from the New York Jets are completely false.

At the end of the week last week, I sat down with the GM and Coach Gase and told them I want to be here in New York. I was told yesterday by my agent that the GM then went behind my back and shopped me around to teams, even after I asked him to keep me here! Crazy business.

Douglas then commented on the now brewing rift between Adams and the team, making mention of Adams removing the Jets from his social media bio, and detailed what had gone down.
“Teams have been calling us ever since there was a social media issue a few weeks back,” Douglas said. “My message was clear, that Jamal was an absolute stud and we’re not interested in moving him. Teams continued to call. I was always taught where I’m from, if a team calls, you listen to what they have to say.”
The Jets didn’t just receive interest in Adams, as there was also interest in running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Robby Anderson, with one team making an offer of a fourth round draft pick for Anderson, which was below what the Jets were asking; a second rounder.
Douglas said he spoke to Bell and Anderson after the deadline, and was planning on speaking with Adams as well.
“We were not shopping any of those players,” Douglas said.
Bell had been heavily rumored to be available, but following the passing of the deadline, he took to social media to state his happiness to still be a Jet.

Jets’ Sam Darnold Cleared to Return Against Cowboys
The New York Jets will have quarterback Sam Darnold back under center for their Week 6 tilt against the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium.
Darnold, who has missed a few weeks while dealing with mono, will start for the Jets as they host the Cowboys, according to an official team announcement.
Darnold has been sidelined since Week 2 with mononucleosis, and will now try to help the winless Jets get their season back on track. The Jets offense has been simply awful thus far in the 2019 season, ranking last in the NFL in total offense, and 31st in scoring.
It’s unclear just how much Darnold will help an abysmal Jets offense, but having him back in the lineup certainly won’t hurt.
