Robert Saleh confident in Elijah Moore despite WR’s underwhelming debut

Some guys hit the ground running in their first-ever NFL regular-season game.

Others may take some time.

After Sunday’s loss to the Panthers, Jets rookie wide receiver Elijah Moore seemingly finds himself in the latter category. The 2021 second-round draft pick caught just one ball for a loss of three yards in Carolina and was targeted four times.

He will put this game in the rearview though and keep on moving forward just like any professional would, and Robert Saleh knows that.

“I’m sure he wants the game bad,” the head coach told the media Wednesday.
