The New York Jets are are of to their best start since 2010, owning a 5-2 record through the first seven weeks of the season. Staying healthy will be the key to ending a lengthy playoff drought and head coach Robert Saleh recently confirmed the injury statuses of two top wide receivers for Week 8.

Saleh revealed that Corey Davis will not suit up on Sunday due to his MCL sprain. The 27-year-old was originally considered day-to-day after going down against the Denver Broncos in Week 7. He did not practice at all this week, though, and will need at least a week off to recover away from the field.

Jets fans know how much it will hurt to not have Davis running routes in Week 8. He has been New York's best deep threat this season, averaging an impressive 18.1 yards per reception. Davis also leads the team in receiving yards (351) despite only ranking fourth on the team with 19 catches.

On the bright side, Elijah Moore will be active after he stayed on the sideline in Week 7 as a healthy scratch. The second-year pro requested a trade from the team recently, but reports suggest the Jets have no reason to grant him that wish. Moore has logged 203 yards on 16 receptions across six games so far.

Look for Moore as well as rookie Garrett Wilson to take on most of the workload with Davis unable to play. Braxton Berrios could also see some extended work in the slot. For now, the Jets are slated as a 2.5-point home underdog against the New England Patriots, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
