Jets’ injury mess is as bad as they feared

The signs weren’t encouraging all week, but Jets coach Adam Gase confirmed that wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman, as well as right tackle George Fant will not play in Sunday’s game in Indianapolis.

“Yeah, they’re not going to be able to go,” Gase said when asked about the two wideouts before practice Friday. “And (Fant) getting a concussion on Wednesday, he wouldn’t be able to clear the protocol (in time to play against the Colts).”

Gase added that neither Crowder (hamstring) nor Perriman (ankle) presently are considered candidates to be placed on injured reserve.

Center Connor McGovern (hamstring) also was slated to be limited in practice Friday and remains questionable to play, but Gase said, “We’ll see how he feels if he’s able to even be available in a backup role, that’s helpful for us, even in an emergency situation.”
