The New York Jets are heading into their Week 5 game on Sunday. However, a recent update related to player injuries could hamper the Jets’ road to success, causing yet another concern to arise for the Jets’ QB Zach Wilson. It has been more than 20 days since coach Robert Saleh’s Big Apple has secured a victory.

Their last win was against the Buffalo Bills, the same game in which Aaron Rodgers suffered an Achilles tendon injury within five minutes of the game’s kickoff in his debut with the Jets. Since then, Gang Green has struggled in their subsequent games. Just when Jets fans were starting to breathe a sigh of relief after seeing a good comeback in the team’s last game against the Kansas City Chiefs, an injury this week could be a cause for concern for the team and its head coach.

The New York Jets released an injury report on Wednesday ahead of their matchup with the Denver Broncos. Three defensive players from the team were listed as non-participants. The team’s second-string cornerback, Brandin Echols, has been officially ruled out for Sunday’s game against Denver, after suffering a hamstring injury at MetLife.

Cornerback DJ Reed’s availability is uncertain due to concussion symptoms as well, and he faces the NFL’s concussion protocol, making his clearance for the October 8 game against the Denver Broncos uncertain.
