Cornerback Stephon Gilmore won’t be on the field for the Patriots’ matchup against the Jets on Sunday, but he’s still getting involved in the preparation.
Fellow cornerback J.C. Jackson shared that Gilmore’s helping him prepare for Jets wide receiver Corey Davis. Signing with the Jets this offseason after four seasons with the Titans, Davis put up a good performance in his Jets debut. He caught five passes for 97 yards along with two touchdowns in a loss to the Panthers.
Davis asserted himself as rookie quarterback Zack Wilson’s top target in Week 1. Even with Breshard Perriman and Keelan Cole expected to return to the lineup in Week 2, the Patriots are preparing for Davis to be the Jets’ top wideout again.
