Sam Darnold won’t play again this week because of his right shoulder injury, but the Jets quarterback is making progress.

Jets coach Adam Gase said Friday that Darnold could return for next week’s game against the Dolphins.

“He’s doing good,” Gase said, via video from Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. “I think he’s feeling better. I think we’ve got a good shot for the next game. He’s progressing the right direction. We’ll just kind of see how this weekend goes and how he feels Monday, Tuesday. We’ll be able to know on Wednesday.”

Darnold missed the team’s Week 9 loss to the Patriots after aggravating his injury in Week 8 against the Chiefs. Darnold was first injured in Week 4 against the Broncos and missed two games with the injury then.

Joe Flacco will continue to fill in while Darnold is out.

  1. 2020 Sam Darnold Statistics:

    3 td – 6 int – 70.6 QB rating
    0 wins – 6 losses

    So… uhh… yeah… good luck with that.

  2. None of this matters. I think Darnold is going to be pretty good…somewhere else. I don’t think he’ll be elite and win SB’s, but with professional coaching and better talent and defense he’d win you 9-10 games a year. Andy Dalton basically.

    He’s done here…we all hope he plays well when he gets back – well enough to increase the pick we get for him.

    Jim, well said and fair. I also think Sam is going to be a pretty good QB somewhere. It just didn’t work out for him given the circumstances with the Jets. The Jets need to wipe clean coaches and several players and start brand new fresh with a new coach and hopefully Trevor Lawrence. That would go a long way to washing clean the stench Gase has left behind.

  4. why would Trevor Lawrence go to this dumpster fire. I could see him pulling an Elway or Manning.
