Injury Update (Wed); Jermaine Johnson Likely Out For Sunday

Jermaine Johnson

NY Jets head coach Robert Saleh spoke to the media on Wednesday and gave several injury updates.

For injuries, Jermaine (Johnson) will be out today. He’s getting a lot better. Hopefully, we can get him back next week. Then, Duane (Brown), Quincy (Williams), and Braxton (Berrios) are all dealing with a couple of bumps and bruises. They’ll be limited — not worried about them for the game.

Saleh was asked to clarify what next week meant and if Johnson would be available on Sunday.

It doesn’t look like it. We’ll see unless something happens today and tomorrow. He’s probably not going to make it.

Quincy Williams had 14 tackles in his return against the Packers.

Like I said, he’s been playing really, really well, and he’s so raw coming out of Murray State, it’s a small college, out there playing nickel practically. When you watch his college, blurry, college tape, but you saw the speed, the length, the explosiveness, and it’s just a matter of time. It takes time to learn to play behind the ball and last year, he went through a lot of growing pains. We forced him in there and we were doing everything we could to help him and he’s now a second year and he’s been getting better and better so that injury, thank God, it didn’t derail him too long, but he’s having a really nice year and he’s only getting better and even for him, he’s got a long way to go, in terms of not only the physical part we all see, it’s the mental part, not only from a playbook standpoint, but then stacking up great days and remaining consistent in what he’s doing day in and day out. So, he’s trending in the right direction, and we’re really excited about him.

Denzel Mims isn’t injured but he has been a healthy scratch this week.  Saleh was asked what Mims can do to be active on game day.

From a professional standpoint, he’s got to come in every day and do his job, that’s all of us. It is hard in his shoes, but right now the other guys are playing good football, you can only dress five and there’s a special teams value and all that stuff like we’ve talked about. The reason why Denzel is here is because we still have a lot of faith in him, and he needs to continue working and be ready when his number is called.
