The Nebraska Football team doesn't historically have a ton of wide receivers that make it to the NFL. It has even fewer receivers that not only make the league but manage to stick and get regular playing time. Because of this fact, it's always celebrated when a player is able to represent the Huskers at that position in the league. Quincy Enunwa, for instance, is the only Nebraska wide receiver who has had a reception in a regular season NFL game since 2017.

Sadly, he hasn't had a catch since 2016 himself, thanks to an injury that sidelined him before the season started a year ago.

The injury was significant enough that he missed the entire 2017 campaign. Coming into 2018, the former Cornhusker was looking for a comeback-type season. A thumb injury derailed that comeback in the early part of the preseason. On Friday night, Enunwa was finally healthy enough to return to the field for in-game action. His performance was good enough to illustrate that he will be a candidate for playing time this coming season.

Quincy Enunwa looks to be back to good form

Against the cross-town rival New York Giants, the former Husker showed that he can be a weapon for whichever quarterback wins the Jets' job. While rookie quarterback Sam Darnold is expected to get the position, Teddy Bridgewater is still in the running.

It appears that whoever gets the job will be able to count on Enunwa.

Quincy isn't expected to be a starter this year. At least not at the moment. He will get significant playing time as the number three, or even number four receiver in the Jets' offense. On Friday night, he tied for second on the team in catches, as he nabbed two.

Those two catches went for 28 yards.

Former Husker happy with his official return to the field

There might be some Husker and Jets fans that will point to just two catches and wonder whether Quincy Enunwa has returned to form. As the Jets' official website points out, it was more about how much he played than how many catches he hauled down.

Enunwa played every down in the first half on Friday.

"They really wanted to get me out there and get me ready for the season. It's always great to be back out there. It was a little exhausting at first." He said after the game. As USA Today points out, the best news of all was how well he meshed with the Jets' offense. For someone who hasn't appeared in a game since January 1, 2017, Quincy Enunwa looked plenty comfortable being on the field.
