New York Jets wide receiver Jamison Crowder will not practice on Friday which means his status for the Kansas City Chiefs game is in doubt.

FLORHAM PARK, NJ—The New York Jets will most likely be without wide receiver Jamison Crowder when they take on the mighty Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

Head coach Adam Gase told the media that Crowder will not practice Friday and that it’s not looking good for the weekend.

“Crowder will not practice today with the groin (and is) not looking great for Sunday,” Gase said on Zoom before practice.

Additionally, Blake Cashman (hamstring), Bradley McDougald (shoulder) and Breshad Perriman (concussion) have already been ruled out for the tilt. They obviously won’t practice Friday. Offensive lineman Conor McDermott has tried to get through things with a non-COVID-19 illness, but he’ll also miss practice and his status for Sunday is uncertain.

Sam Ficken is another player to currently watch. His right-groin injury kept him out of the team’s 18-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. He’s back at practice, on a limited basis; but considering it’s a soft-tissue injury, how the Jets handle their kicking situation this Sunday will be noteworthy.

Without Crowder and Perriman, Sam Darnold will most likely see a healthy dose of Braxton Berrios, Jeff Smith and Denzel Mims, the kid whose presence looms largely important.

Regarding Crowder, Gase was optimistic heading into Thursday’s practice.

“Yeah, I mean, to be honest with you, I really felt good yesterday,” Gase said about Crowder’s potential availability. “I felt like he felt confident when I spoke to him on Monday and Tuesday. He felt really good, like, ‘I’m going to be good. I’ll do the stuff with the strength coaches on Wednesday, (and on) Thursday, I’ll be good to go.'”

As the session progressed, it became evident that the Jets’ best receiver was still dealing with the bum hamstring.

“We limited everything he did, whether it’s individual or team periods, and there were some times where I felt like he looked really good,” Gase added. “And then there was a part of practice where he, he was like, ‘Hey, I’m feeling it a little bit.’ Then after practice, when I talked to him with the trainer, we were going to see how he felt today and then obviously, he doesn’t feel as good as we were hoping.”

Jamison Crowder has accumulated 383 yards and two touchdowns on 29 grabs in four games this season. If he misses this one, he will have missed just as many games as he’s played (4).
