Crowder was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and returned to practice Thursday and said Friday that he expected to play in the Jets' home opener.
He has been battling a nagging groin injury from training camp, although he said the injury wouldn't have prevented him from playing last week. It was the positive COVID-19 test that kept him out of the opener against the Carolina Panthers.
In another notable move at wide receiver, Denzel Mims -- a 2020 second-round draft pick -- was a healthy scratch Sunday. This wasn't a surprise, considering his lack of practice reps and place on the depth chart, but it raises questions about Mims' standing with the team.
