Sam Darnold (Mono) To Miss Week 2, Out Indefinitely
The Jets will presumably lose their starting quarterback for multiple weeks
New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will be out indefinitely after being diagnosed with mononucleosis.
As a result, Trevor Siemian will start against the Cleveland Browns on Monday Night Football in Week 2.
Luke Falk will be the Jets’ backup quarterback while Darnold recovers. By the look of it, Darnold will likely be out for multiple weeks.
Le'Veon Bell is also nursing a shoulder issue and the injuries are starting to pile up in New York.
So to recap: Sam Darnold is out indefinitely with mono. Le'Veon Bell is getting an MRI on his shoulder. C.J. Mosley (groin) and Quinnen Williams (ankle) not practicing. Oh, and the Jets have already lost a starters Quincy Enunwa and Avery Williamson for the season.— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) September 12, 2019
