New York Jets wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is pleased with his recovery from neck surgery and said that he thinks he'll be able to participate in the club's first organized team activity on May 22.

Enunwa reported "no setbacks" in his recovery from the surgery that sidelined him for the entire 2017 season. He said he has been "doing everything with the guys" in the first phase of offseason work.


"I think I'll be able to go," Enunwa said, via "I think we'll be smart about it. I think I'm going to go out there and do what I need to do. I've been able to run for a long time. It hasn't really been a hindrance. I don't have medical knowledge, but I feel like this injury compared to a knee is a little bit easier to come back from.

"The worst part about it is, if you don't heal all the way, then hits are bad. But just in terms of physically being able to play, I've been able to do that for a while."

Enunwa did not touch upon his previous comments that said the Jets were "capable" of "dethroning" the New England Patriots atop the AFC East.


The 25-year-old Enunwa enjoyed a career season in 2016, recording 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns. He has 80 catches for 1,172 yards and four touchdowns in 29 career games since being New York's sixth-round pick in 2014 out of Nebraska.

Enunwa is part of a crowded wide receiver corps that includes Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, Terrelle Pryor, ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen and Andre Roberts.
