Head coach Robert Saleh said Crowder and Keelan Cole, who's been dealing with a knee injury, are likely to make their season debuts on Sunday, but are still game-day decisions.
"I don't want to jinx it," Saleh said Friday. "They still got to work their hurdle today, but they've been getting better and progressing. But they'll still be decided on game day."
Both receivers were listed as questionable on the Jets' final injury report heading into the weekend.
"I feel pretty good for the most part," Crowder said Friday. "Breathing and stuff feels back to normal. Just sore a little bit. Just trying to get my body back used to running and stuff like that."
He added that he had "mild-to-no symptoms" while dealing with COVID-19 and expects to play Sunday.
In addition to Crowder and Cole, the Jets had Chuma Edoga (Non-COVID illness) and Isaiah Dunn listed as questionable as well.
Jamien Sherwood (ankle) didn't practice all week and is doubtful to suit up Sunday.
For Crowder specifically, it will be interesting to see how OC Mike LaFleur uses him along with rookie Elijah Moore. Moore didn't have the best Jets debut, dropping two passes in the loss to the Carolina Panthers. But he does work out of the slot on most snaps, which is Crowder's specialty.
Crowder proved to be a reliable set of hands in the green and white during the Sam Darnold era. He can help Wilson the same way moving forward.
