Davis suffered a groin injury on Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday. He was listed as limited on Friday, though Friday practices are typically much lighter than other days of the week. But then, the wideout’s status was downgraded to doubtful on Saturday.
The Jets’ offense will be without rookie running back Michael Carter due to an ankle injury, and now the potential of not having Davis could make things even tougher for Zach Wilson, who will make his return to the field following four missed games due to a knee injury.
Davis has already missed two games this season, but he’s been a reliable option for the Jets when on the field, leading the team with 477 receiving yards and tied for the team lead in touchdowns (four) with rookie Elijah Moore.
The Jets and Texans both come into Sunday’s matchup with 2-8 records, but the Texans are coming off a win over the Tennessee Titans while the Jets have dropped three straight.
