Brandon Marshall sustained an MCL injury on Thursday, despite an initial diagnosis of a “slightly sprained” knee.
Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall sustained an MCL injury after falling awkwardly during Thursday night’s win over the Bills, NBC Sports’ Mike Florio reports.
The news comes after coach Todd Bowles told reporters on Friday that Marshall’s knee was “fine,” and “sore or slightly sprained.”
Marshall left the game in the second quarter, but returned for the Jets’ next drive. It’s unclear if he will be able to play on the knee when New York visits Kansas City on Sept. 25.
Quincy Enunwa got an increased look in the short time Marshall was sidelined and would likely receive more targets should the veteran miss Week 2.
