Florum Park, NJ – Rookie Wide Receiver Denzil Mims, One of the brightest spots in the New York Jets’ 0-12 season, was ruled out of Sunday’s game despite being healthy.
Mims goes to a family emergency in her home state of Texas and misses her daily COVID-19 tests. Under NFL’s Corona virus protocols, the team said Mims was not eligible to play against Seahorse Seahawk at Lumen Field.
Under the protocol, the team must test MIMS at the facility by 10pm on Wednesday. According to coach Adam Case, he is not out of town yet.
“Apparently he’s going in the right direction,” Case said Thursday. “He’s a big reason we ‘ve had some great games since he played. The ethics are the same. He had to handle the family business, and we support it because we felt he was doing the right thing.”
Mims, who was selected in the second round from Ballard, has been playing well since returning from a hamstring injury, costing the first six games of the season. In six games, he had 19 receptions for 324 yards and no touchdowns in the opening role. He will be replaced Jeff Smith Or Vincent Smith.
Jets’ Wide Recipients Seehawks Second – A Familiar Face in Ex-Jets Defense Jamal Adams, Traded in July. The day before the trade, Adams tore up the case in the New York Daily News, criticizing his leadership ability.
“I thought [our relationship] It was good, but apparently he felt differently, “Case said.” I do not know. I never had a bad relationship with him. He talked to me a lot and got in touch. Once offseason [starts], I am not responsible for contracts. I was not involved in those talks. “
The main reason why Jet Airways decided to trade Adams was a contract dispute. When asked if he was hurt by Adams’ comments, Case said, “Yeah, this surprised me, but that’s what it is.”
The Jets reached the first round of selections in 2021 and 2022 in a package for Adams with 7.5 sacks in 2020 – a half-sack of the NFL’s single-season record on defensive backs.
In the trade, Case said, “both sides got what they wanted.”
The Jets rank 29th overall, while the Seahawks rank 31st.
