Former Duke football wide receiver Jamison Crowder did not play for the New York Jets due to a groin injury.

The New York Jets continue to lose, and this time they did not have leading wide receiver Jamison Crowder for the return of Sam Darnold from a two-week absence.

Crowder, who suffered a groin injury in practice this week, was unable to suit up as the Jets were expecting to see their wide receiver trio of Crowder, Denzel Mims, and Breshad Perriman.

In the return of Darnold, he only completed passes to three wide receivers in New York’s 18-10 loss.

The third-year quarterback missed his trusty slot receiver as the Jets did take a 10-6 lead into halftime, their first halftime lead of the season, but New York was only able to gain four total yards in the second half.

Mims and Braxton Berrios lead the team with seven targets as both receivers caught four passes for 42 and 35 yards, respectively.

Sunday was the third game Crowder missed this season. In Week 2 and Week 3, the former Blue Devil was sidelined because of a hamstring injury.

Despite only playing four games this season, Jamison Crowder is still the team leader in targets, receptions, and receiving yards, all by a large margin, as the New York Jets continue to look hopeless on offense in the 2020 season.

In his Monday conference call with reporters, Jets head coach Adam Gase did not sound optimistic that Jamison Crowder could be back on the field in Week 8.

Sunday afternoon could be the biggest mismatch of the season as the New York Jets (0-7) travel to face the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs (6-1).

As nearly a three-touchdown underdog, the Jets will continue to search for their first win of the season, with kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium at 1:00pm EST on CBS.
