Saturday update: The Jets have downgraded Davis to doubtful, per Rich Cimini, making him unlikely to play on Sunday.

Friday update: Davis will return to practice on Friday and head coach Robert Saleh believes he’ll be able to play, per Rich Cimini. He’s listed as questionable to play but is expected to be active on Sunday vs. the Texans.

Update: Davis’ injury during Wednesday’s practice was serious enough to hold him out of Thursday’s practice session. The receiver was just getting back into action after missing time with a hip injury, so this is unfortunate timing for him and the Jets.

The New York Jets have been dealing with a lot of uncertainty in the wide receiver room, and that uncertainty continued after Wednesday’s practice. Wide receiver Corey Davis, who had just returned after a stint on the sidelines due to a hip injury, suffered a groin injury in practice according to Rich Cimini.

Davis is one of the Jets top receivers, and is a favorite for Zach Wilson. The rookie quarterback is set to be back in action for Week 12, so not having Davis would be a tough way for him to come back.

Fantasy football implications

This obviously further bolsters breakout rookie receiver Elijah Moore, along with Jamison Crowder. There’s no word yet on Denzel Mims’ injury but he would also be in the mix for some targets. The Jets will be without Michael Carter, so expect Wilson to throw the ball more against the Texans. Davis has a few more days to show he can either play through the injury or that he has recovered from it.
