Corey Davis has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a core-muscle injury. New York Jets head coach, Robert Saleh, conveyed to reporters that Davis has already been scheduled for season-ending surgery. Davis has been on the injury report for the last few weeks due to a groin injury. As of this writing, it is unknown when said the core-muscle injury occurred. Regardless, Davis is expected to be ready to go upon the start of the off-season programs.
New York Jets Wide Receiver Corey Davis Injures Core Muscle
Pro Bowl Hopeful Lost for Season
Up until his recent rash of injuries, Davis has been making the most of a bad situation in New York. Unsurprisingly, the Jets have been a dumpster fire this season. Davis has been one of the lone bright spots on an offense that looks abysmal more often than not. He was finally starting to show the potential the Tennessee Titans saw when they spent a first-round draft pick on him back in 2017.
In nine starts this season with the Jets, Davis registered 34 receptions on 59 targets. He recorded 492 receiving yards, four touchdowns, and averaged 14.5 yards per reception. Impressive numbers for a player that was once considered to be a bust in Tennessee. It is also worth mentioning that these numbers were accumulated all while playing with a struggling rookie quarterback in Zach Wilson.
New York now sports a mixed-bag at best at the wide receiver position. It will now be up to the younger talent to step up and help their rookie quarterback. Guys like Elijah Moore and Denzel Mims will now need to make a much larger contribution. Veteran players like Keelan Cole and Jamison Crowder will also be relied on heavily as the rest of the season plays out.
