Crowder (groin) was joined by Sam Ficken (groin), Jordan Jenkins (ribs/shoulder), Conor McDermott (illness), Bradley McDougald (shoulder) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) as the “did not practice” players on the New York Jets‘ initial Week 8 injury report.

Head coach Adam Gase sounded confident in Crowder’s eventual return this week, possibly Thursday.

“(Jamison) Crowder won’t practice today,” Gase told the media before Wednesday’s practice. “He’ll be with strength and conditioning. Hopefully, we’re taking the next step here to where we can get him out at practice on Thursday.”

Joining Crowder in the optimistic column are Ficken and Jenkins. McDougald, on the other hand, is another story. Gase’s words made it sound like his status for Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs is in serious doubt.

Perriman remains in concussion protocol after taking that vicious hit dealt by Bills safety Micah Hyde last Sunday. His status is also (obviously) in doubt.

Alex Lewis returned to practice after missing Sunday’s game. Although he was limted, everything is trending in the right direction for the Jets’ left guard. Sam Darnold, limited, was also on the field with the first team.

Speaking of the quarterback, Gase made it clear that his shoulder was the last thing on Darnold’s mind earlier this week.

“That was the least of his worries,” Gase said about Darnold. “It seemed like he was fine with that (shoulder). I heard no complaints. There were a few hits he took in the game that we have to try to avoid him getting hit like that. He got high-lowed a couple of times. I think we were lucky that he got out of that game healthy.”

Darnold struggled mightily after a solid first quarter (save for a terrible third-and-4 play that stalled the opening drive).

Rookie Jabari Zuniga was activated off IR prior to practice, which means his season has been saved. The window to activate him from IR was rapidly closing.

The team also designated Patrick Onwuasor to return to practice from IR, placed Kyle Phillips on IR, restored Lawrence Cager to the practice squad and released David Fales from the practice squad.

The Chiefs open the week much healthier. Just three players did not practice Wednesday. Safety Armani Watts (illness), tackle Mitchell Schwartz (back) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) were those three.
