After the practice, Jets coach Todd Bowles addressed the media and was asked about how much the rookie missed due to his absence.
“Any time you’re not here you lose something,” Bowles said. “Obviously when he comes in we’ll get him caught up. … It’s part of the business. We’ve got two other quarterbacks that can play too.”
Bowles was also asked if there’s a point where Darnold would miss so much time that it would become a concern for the head coach. Bowles reiterated that they’d get Darnold caught up whenever he comes in and said that his concern is with the players who are in camp.
