Darnold Out For Sunday; NY Jets Injury Updates

Sam Darnold

The 0 and 9 NY Jets head to Los Angeles to play the 2 and 7 Chargers on Sunday. The team hasn’t released their injury report for the week yet. Adam Gase did speak to the media and gave these updates. Sam Darnold won’t play, they are going to keep him out and evaluate him again next week.

  • Brian Poole, he’s got a shoulder (and) knee, right now we’re still kind of looking at the shoulder, looking at our options there and just kind of see how this progresses
  • Henry Anderson knee (and) ankle, he could miss some practice time this week, we’ll kind of see how that progresses as the week goes on
  • Quinnen Williams, with the hamstring, hoping for him to be limited this week, we’ll kind of see how Wednesday goes and then we’ll progress from there
  • Blake Cashman with the hamstrings, looks like he’s going to be with strength and conditioning this week, I think it’d be tough for him to make it to the game
  • Sam Ficken progressing, he’s a lot closer than where we’ve been, hopefully, if he keeps trending in the right direction, he’ll be available for us as well
  • Mekhi Becton after coming out of the game, week off and then heading into this week, it looks like he’s good to go
  • Sam Darnold, what we’re going to be doing with him is he’ll be on an interval throwing program, he’s not going to practice, he won’t play this game, so Joe Flacco will end up starting, that’s where we’re at with him right now. Hopefully looking for him to play, kind of see where he is following this game, hopefully we can get him back sooner than later.

Is Darnold possibly headed to I.R. ?

That has not been brought up to me, we’re just taking this week-to-week right now. You know we’re hoping that putting him on this program with the trainers that that will help instead of him going out, trying to practice, we want to make sure he’s in a good place when the next time he steps on the field to practice.

What tests were doing on Mekhi Becton?

Yeah, I mean they went through everything. While the game was going on, they did all kinds of tests and for whatever reason, it was just we couldn’t get him back out there, he wasn’t feeling comfortable with it. And the next day, they went through a whole bunch of stuff and double and triple checked everything, and everything seems to be okay. For whatever reason he was struggling in the game and I don’t have a great explanation for it, that’s what it was and I’m just glad he’s alright and that we’re able to get him back out there.
