Jamison Crowder will not play the Panthers;  still recovering from COVID

Per NFL protocols, vaccinated players can return to the team if they have two negative tests 24 hours apart.

FLORHAM PARK, NJ – New York Jets wide receiver, Jamison Crowder, will miss the first game of the season at Carolina on Sunday as he continues to recover from COVID-19.

Crowder, who led the Jets in receptions the past two seasons, was placed on the list of COVID-19 last Friday after testing positive. Crowder is vaccinated but still has some symptoms.

Per NFL protocols, vaccinated players can return to the team if they have two negative tests 24 hours apart.

Coach Robert Saleh he ruled out Crowder on Friday for the game against the Panthers.

Wide receiver Keelan Cole is unsure about playing after injuring his knee during practice Thursday. He was listed as questionable after not practicing on Friday.

“He’s going to go all the way,” Saleh said of the decision on the matter.

Safety Sharrod Neasman was ruled out of the game after not practicing all week with a hamstring injury.

The Jets have starters Marcus Maye and Lamarcus Joyner at safety, along with Sheldrick Redwine. Saleh said there is a chance that New York will raise a safety, possibly Adrian Colbert or Jarrod Wilson, from the practice team.

Running back La’Mical Perine is questionable for the game with a foot injury, but participated in Friday’s practice after being limited on Wednesday and Thursday.

Game Notes

  • LT Mekhi Becton was a full participant for the third day in a row after passing the NFL concussion protocol. He struggled during various training camp practices, and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur said a few weeks ago that last year’s first-round pick was “going through a few things.”

  • Becton also missed some practices while dealing with his head injury. While Becton said he could have performed better this summer, he acknowledged that LaFleur’s comments “confused” him. Becton also said that she never reached out to LaFleur to discuss the comments.

  • Saleh made a notable costume change on Friday, wearing his usual Jets gear and donning a Passaic County Technical Institute jersey. It was to recognize the Lady Bulldogs who won the first Jets / Nike Girls High School flag football league college championship in New Jersey history in June. Saleh will recognize a local high school team each week during their Friday press conferences.

  • The Jets signed former Alabama offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher to the practice team. Pierschbacher was a fifth-round pick for Washington in 2019 and most recently spent time with Philadelphia.
