Jets Lose Perriman, Wilson, McGovern, Maulet in Loss to Niners


A Jets-49ers game besieged by injuries claimed four Jets, as both wide receiver Breshad Perriman and cornerback Quincy Wilson were ruled out for the second half, while center Connor McGovern (hamstring) and cornerback Arthur Maulet (groin) were ruled out in the fourth quarter.

Wide receiver Chris Hogan was also listed as questionable to return after suffering a rib injury in the third quarter.

Wilson was evaluated for a concussion after hitting his head hard on Niners running back Tevin Coleman’s hip while making a tackle late in the second quarter. He was immediately brought back to the locker room, and ruled out for the second half.

Perriman, who was expected to be a key cog in the offense with slot receiver Jamison Crowder ruled inactive before the game, was shaken up after a catch in the second quarter, and later ruled out with an ankle injury.
He finished with two catches for 12 yards.

Hogan was shaken up after catching an 18-yard pass from Sam Darnold in the middle of the third quarter, and his exit left Braxton Berrios and Josh Malone, who was added from the practice squad before the game, as the only healthy wideouts on the field for Gang Green.

The injuries come in a game where the 49ers lost four players in the first half, with pass rushers Solomon Thomas and Nick Bosa and running back Raheem Mostert going out with knee injuries, and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo sitting the second half due to an ankle injury that hobbled him at the end of the first.

They also come on the same day where their MetLife co-tenants, the Giants, suffered two injuries in Chicago, one of which could be season-changing: an apparent knee injury to running back Saquon Barkley, who was carted off after being tackled on the sidelines.
