The New York Jets will be without their No. 1 wide receiver for the foreseeable future, as Quincy Enunwa is being placed on injured reserve by the team due to a neck injury, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported shortly after that Enunwa will miss the entire 2017 season.

Enunwa, 25, suffered the injury at the team's seven-on-seven drills session on Saturday. With the departure of fellow wide outs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, Enunwa was initially in line for a breakout season come 2017-18.

This is just bad news, both for Enunwa and the Jets, who are already talent poor at the receiver position.

Enunwa recorded 58 receptions for 857 yards and four touchdowns for career highs last season. But a 1-15 record projection is slowly inching toward an 0-16 actual mark for the Jets this year, that's for sure. Marquess Wilson is next with 56, followed by Robby Anderson and newly signed Bruce Ellington, who each have 42. No one expects the Jets to contend this season, but at some point, they will have to decide whether Hackenberg is the answer at quarterback, a decision that could affect their 2018 draft plans and their franchise for years to come.
