Sam Darnold almost left the game before the last play Sunday. He was walking gingerly after the loss to the previously winless Bengals.

Jets coach Adam Gase admits he had “a little concern” immediately after the game, but tests showed Darnold is “OK.”

Darnold has bruised ribs and residual soreness from a previous knee issue.

“The knee is a non-issue,” Darnold said, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. “I feel really good physically.”

Darnold said he just needs to stay on top of it by icing it.

The second-year quarterback completed 28 of 48 passes for 239 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions Sunday.

  1. He can’t seem to stay healthy since he got into the league. This sport is not for everyone.

  2. He will be fine once they fix this absolutely miserable offensive line. The 7th different starting combination with 4 new starters since opening day. Joe Douglas is the right guy to get the job done but this unfortunately will take a couple years to fix. I would keep Harrison and let everyone else walk

  3. Jeez has to go before he gets Sam killed the playcalling the other day was one of the worst game plans I’ve ever seen the worst run defence in the league and we throw the ball 48 times he doesn’t have a clue We have three running backs that can catch the ball and he doesn’t utilise them with the dam is doing the same stupid things he was doing in Miami now we can see why he got fired

  4. Well, you can’t run the ball when you play the entire game from behind. And, by the way, when you play against the Ravens twice you tend to have bad run defense numbers. No one can contain them. The Cincy defense has played crippled this year until the last few weeks. The Cincy offense has been crippled for 2 and a half years. Bengals defense kicked their arses Sunday. Darnold got beat down
