This next episode of “As Sam Darnold‘s Spleen Turns” has been scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Jets head coach Adam Gase said at a Monday press conference that Darnold is set for another round of tests on Tuesday. The team is hoping to hear that Darnold’s no longer at an enhanced risk of having his spleen rupture and that he will be able to start at quarterback against the Cowboys in Week Six.

“If he gets cleared, he’ll start,” Gase said.

Darnold has missed the last three games and the Jets offense has managed to score nine points over those three outings.

There may be other help on the horizon as well. Tight end Chris Herndon‘s four-game suspension is over and he’s eligible to play for the first time this season. Gase said a decision on activating Herndon will be made later in the week.

The defense may also get a boost if linebacker C.J. Mosley gets the green light to return from a groin injury. They may have to replace defensive lineman Henry Anderson, however. Gase called Anderson week-to-week with what Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports is an AC joint injury.

  1. He needs too play now this is pathetic. Only the jets Faulk is prolly the worst quarterback I have ever seen play. Yeah you can blame oline the coaches whatever you want but at least half those sacks came because he has absolutely zero pocket awareness and no attempt too throw the ball

  2. That line will get darnold killed. Falk was under siege all day yesterday. I feel bad for Jets Def. They seemingly ball out every Sunday and the offense is pathetic.

  3. mono is month-to-month not week-to-week. quit trying to rush the kid back so he can get killed behind that line.

  4. Sam wouldn’t have gotten sacked nearly as many times as Falk, for the simple fact that Sam can create and extend plays. That’s not to say he was ready to go; he played week 1 and didn’t tell anyone he was sick. Anyone one of those 4 sacks could’ve been a death blow.
