Adam Gase says Sam Darnold has sprained shoulder

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold made an early exit during Thursday night’s game after being slammed to the ground, and he then made a fairly quick return.

Despite speculation that Darnold may have a broken collarbone, he doesn’t. Coach Adam Gase told reporters after the game that Darnold has a sprained shoulder.

Darnold performed well despite the injury. That doesn’t mean he won’t have issues from the shoulder as the next few days unfolds. Otherwise, Joe Flacco — who briefly replaced Darnold — could end up getting more playing time.

For the night, Darnold completed 23 of 42 passes for 230 yards, with no touchdown passes and no interceptions. He also set a franchise record for a quarterback with 84 rushing yards, the most on the team for the night by 54 yards.

The Jets host the 2-1 Cardinals in Week Five.
