Former Nebraska football standout Quincy Enunwa has suffered another setback in a once promising professional career.  According to reports, Enunwa will miss the entire 2020 season due to a neck injury.  The New York Jets placed him on the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday.  Enunwa missed the 2017 season because of a neck injury and then reinjured his neck in the 2019 season opener.  After a promising 2018 season, Enunwa landed a four year, 33.4 million dollar contract extension, but he has played only one game on that deal.  Enunwa’s six million dollar salary for 2020 is fully guaranteed.  In 2021, 4.1 million dollars of his 7.8 million is guaranteed for injury.
