The New York Jets will be traveling to Seattle Sunday to play the Seahawks. However, they will be without rookie wideout Denzel Mims.

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.
