Rookie WR Denzel Mims is OUT for Sunday, per Adam Gase. He’s healthy, but he had to tend to a family matter in Texas and had to leave the COVID-19 protocol. #Jets

Mims is currently dealing with a “family emergency” that has kept him out of practice the past few days, after flying home to Texas. He won’t be eligible to play due to COVID-19 protocol, but the situation has nothing to do with the virus, as Adam Gase spoke about it yesterday.

Mims has been a consistent target during his first six games, totaling at least 40 receiving yards in each one:
- 4 receptions, 42 yards
- 2 receptions, 42 yards
- 4 receptions, 62 yards
- 3 receptions, 71 yards
- 4 receptions, 67 yards
- 2 receptions, 40 yards
Expect Braxton Berrios to be next in line for more targets from Sam Darnold when they face Jamal Adams and the Seahawks.
