Jets QB Sam Darnold will remain inactive for Week 3 against the Patriots, but he is making progress in his return from mono.

Darnold, who had been quarantined since his illness was diagnosed, was at the Jets' facility on Tuesday, head coach Adam Gase said, adding that Darnold is "feeling better."

"We will really have a better idea (of when Darnold can return) when the doctors give us the green light that he can progress," Gase said. "The doctors are letting us know when to proceed with him."

 

While Darnold is feeling better, two doctors recently told SNY's Ralph Vacchiano that Darnold returning by Week 5 would be a stretch considering the recovery Darnold has to go through. Instead, those doctors believe a Week 7 return against the Patriots is a more likely outcome. 

As Darnold recovers, one potential complication that could delay his return is an enlarged spleen, Dr. Aaron E. Glatt -- chair of medicine at South Nassau Communities Hospital -- told SNY last week.

"The one major concern for a professional football player would be an enlarged spleen," Glatt said. "Unfortunately, a professional football player is exposed to tremendous contact and can be potentially hit very severely on their spleen. If the spleen is enlarged, as it often is in patients with mono, it is potentially at greater risk for rupture than a normal, healthy person who doesn't have an enlarged spleen. Therefore, we normally recommend patients who have mono abstain from contact sports."


Gase also provided the following injury updates on Tuesday...

  • Jordan Jenkins is week-to-week with calf injury
  • Demaryius Thomas is week-to-week with a knee injury
  • Trevor Siemian is out for the year
  • C.J. Mosley and Quinnen Williams remain day-to-day

A day after the Jets secured their first win of the season, Jets head coach Adam Gase had a few injuries to inform the media about. 

The biggest one -- and the one the Jets may worry about most heading into the new week -- was LT Kelvin Beachum sustaining a sprained ankle.

He is currently week-to-week, and the Jets are going to have to plan like he won't be available for the Jets Monday night matchup against the undefeated Patriots. If that is the case, Brandon Shell, who currently serves as the team's right tackle, might have to shift over to the left side.

Tight end Chris Herndon has rejoined the Jets after serving his four-game suspension to begin the season. In order to make room for Herndon, the Jets have waived linebacker Frankie Luvu.

The Jets are getting back a big member of their receiving core from last season, as Herndon was second on the team in receptions with 39. The 2018 fourth-round pick also finished his rookie season with 502 yards and four touchdowns.

Despite being reinstated to the active roster, Herndon may not suit up for the Jets just yet, having injured his hamstring prior to Week 5, but he hopes to practice this week.

Leonard Williams' name popped up in trade rumors on Sunday, with ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting that "multiple teams" were interested in trading for the Jets' defensive end.

After the Jets' win over the Cowboys on Sunday, Williams addressed the rumors. And he didn't seem too bothered.

"I wouldn't say it makes me uneasy," he told reporters. "You see the best players in the league get traded and it's not like it's a personal thing. It's just the way the business is and I can't take anything personal. That's why I can't really focus on it because I can't really control it. The best thing I can control is my play and wherever I end up, just focus on that."

The Jets suddenly have a little life with the return of Sam Darnold and a big win over the Cowboys. They are feeling confident, the way they did way back in Week 1.

But it is all too little, too late?

Not necessarily, at least not if they can pull off an improbable win against the New England Patriots at the Meadowlands next Monday night in a game that is shaping up as the Jets' last stand for the 2019 season. Their odds are already long at 1-4, but their playoff path will look impossible if they fall to 1-5.

The first four weeks of the season were disastrous for the Jets. Losing their starting quarterback to mono and a backup quarterback to an ankle injury undermined everything they were hoping to do.

That didn't stop the drumbeat, though, of people unhappy with Adam Gase's performance, wondering if this might be his only season with the franchise.

That's a storyline that seems pretty ridiculous now.

Bart Scott apologizes to Gase 00:00:55
SNY's Bart Scott apologizes for how hard he's been on Jets head coach Adam Gase after getting his first win of the season against Dallas

After the Jets' offense came alive for New York's first win of 2019 in Sunday's 24-22 triumph over the Dallas Cowboys, SNY's Bart Scott got creative with an apology to Adam Gase on Jets Post Game Live.

Critical of Gase throughout the regular season's opening four games for the previously winless Jets (1-4), Scott owned up to his comments about the offense's ineffectiveness under the first-year head coach with quarterback Sam Darnold back from mononucleosis.

Darnold completed 23 of 32 passes (71.9 percent) for 338 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in his first game back since Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills, Sept. 8's 17-16 loss, which he played while mononucleosis started to bring him under the weather.

The Jets offense was undoubtedly better with quarterback Sam Darnold in Week 6 as the team picked up their first win of the year over the Dallas Cowboys, 24-22. 

Wide receiver Jamison Crowder was one of the biggest beneficiaries of Darnold's return.  

"It was great. The offense, I just felt like we were able to move the football," Crowder said following the win.

The Jets saw quarterback Sam Darnold return to the lineup and light up the Cowboys en route to a 24-22 win over Dallas, their first of the year. Running back Le'Veon Bell was less of a factor in the outing and that's perfectly fine with him. 

Bell averaged 3.6 yards per carry, which came via 50 yards on 14 carries. He did add a touchdown, but Darnold's day stood out, especially after the lackluster quarterbacking the Jets have gotten without him in the lineup. 

Darnold had 338 passing yards and two scores with an interception. But whatever gets it done, works for Bell. Moving forward he thinks Darnold's presence will help create a more dynamic attack for the Jets, and the Darnold-Bell, one-two punch will keep opponents on their toes.

Robby Anderson 1on1 00:01:27
New York Jets receiver Robby Anderson thrived having QB Sam Darnold back under center but knows the team still has a lot of work to do

The Jets offense came to life with Sam Darnold under center against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. The Jets held on for a 24-22 win, but the offensive side of the ball looked its best when Darnold connected with wide receiver Robby Anderson for a score. 

Anderson led the Jets with five catches for 125 yards. A big chunk of that came on his touchdown which was a 92-yard strike that gave Gang Green a huge jolt of life and 14-3 lead late in the first half. 

Prior to the play, Anderson said he communicated to his QB that the Cowboys' secondary had been sitting on shorter routes. The ensuing throw over the top of their defense proved Anderson correct.

How much different did the Jets look on offense with quarterback Sam Darnold in Sunday's 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys?

Just ask Robby Anderson.

The wide receiver caught five passes for 125 yards and a 92-yard touchdown, igniting an offense that the Jets (1-4) desperately needed to get back on track and did against the Cowboys' defense.

In Sunday's 24-22 win over the Cowboys, Jets quarterback Sam Darnold returned to the lineup in style, completing 23 of 32 passes for 338 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.

Let's look at some specific examples before we draw conclusions...

First quarter, 14:56. No score. First play of the game at the Jets' 18-yard line.

It didn't take Darnold long to underscore the fact that they had upgraded significantly at the quarterback position.

Jamal Adams talks Jets win 00:00:48
Jets safety Jamal Adams is pumped after solidifying the Jets first win and wants the Jets fans to keep their faith and believe in the team.

The Jets very much held on for their first win of the 2019 season, a 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys. It took a game-sealing blitz on the Cowboys' late two-point conversion attempt to take the win. 

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott sent a pass intended for tight end Jason Witten into the ground as the Jets weren't playing chess, they were playing math. Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams dialed up an all-out blitz and there were plenty more defenders than blockers. 

The decision worked as safety Jamal Adams went in on Prescott unblocked and forced the incompletion.

Sam Darnold is back. And so is the Jets' offense.

In case anyone needed proof that the problem the last three weeks had been poor quarterback play, the 22-year-old Darnold showed how much a difference even a competent quarterback can make. And he was more than competent. He was outstanding. Playing for the first time since Week 1, he completed 23 of 32 passes for 338 yards with two touchdowns and an interception

It was enough to let the Jets hang on for their first win of the season -- 24-22 over the Dallas Cowboys.

As SNY's Ralph Vacchiano pointed out earlier on Sunday, the Jets will be looking to be extremely active at the NFL trade deadline that approaches closer by the day. And one of the players he says to watch is DL Leonard Williams

Well, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the interest in Williams is already there around the league.

The Jets may have a glimmer of hope now that Sam Darnold is back in the lineup, but they are still facing a stark and unfortunate reality. Since 1990, when the NFL playoffs expanded, only one team has started 0-4 and gone on to make the playoffs. And it hasn't happened since the San Diego Chargers did it in 1992.

That's why between now and the trading deadline on Oct. 29, many around the league believe the Jets' motto should be, and will be: "Sell!"

A lot can happen in the three games between now and that deadline, of course, but multiple league sources told SNY that they expect new Jets GM Joe Douglas to be extremely active in the next few weeks. One source used the word "firesale" to describe what he expects would happen thanks to the combination of a new GM, a team with an 0-4 record, and several expensive but talented players who may not fit in to his long-term plan.

Sam Darnold has been medically cleared and is ready to get back into the starting lineup on Sunday against the Cowboys, and one of his top targets is happy to see No. 14 back under center.

Jamison Crowder recently told Steve Serby of the New York Post that he's "excited" to have Darnold back on the field.

"I'm glad that he's back. I'm just excited, man, see what we can do with him back at the head of the offense," Crowder said. "I feel like the first game [Buffalo], me and him started off with great chemistry, and things were kind of obviously derailed with him being sick or whatnot."

The Jets announced on Saturday afternoon that the team has signed veteran nose tackle Steve McLendon to a one-year contract extension. 

Originally an undrafted rookie free agent signing with Pittsburgh in 2009, McLendon, now 33 years old, originally joined the Jets in 2016 on a three-year deal. This past march, the Troy product re-signed with Gang Green on a one-year deal. Now, he will be under contract through the 2020 season.

The Jets have activated linebacker Brandon Copeland following his four-game suspension, the team announced on Saturday. To make room for Copeland on the roster, the Jets waived quarterback Luke Falk

Copeland was sidelined for the first four games after violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy by failing an offseason drug test. Copeland maintains the failed test was due to a tainted supplement he was using, but regardless he is set to make his season debut against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Copeland signed with the Jets prior to last season and appeared in all 16 games (10 starts) in 2018, setting career highs with 47 tackles and five sacks. He played for the Lions in 2015 and 2016 before missing all of the 2017 season with a torn pectoral muscle and signing with Gang Green.

Jets QB Sam Darnold will make his return to the field for the first time since Week 1 on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys

When he'll be getting dressed to play, the second-year quarterback will be wearing specialized pads for extra protection for his spleen, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

"The same company that made specialized pads for Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, used that same model to develop something quickly to protect Sam Darnold," Pelissero said. "With Newton, he is just a bigger bodied quarterback, so he needed a little extra protection through his mid-section. With Darnold, the concern when you've had mono is the spleen. Standard shoulder pads really don't provide that type of protection. So, Darnold, I'm told, went through multiple fittings and he's got something that he is comfortable with as he gets back on the field."

Wide receiver Robby Anderson has been a bright spot for the Jets offense the past few seasons, but is off to a slow start this year through four games.

The 26-year-old out of Temple University had made 155 catches for 2,280 yards and 15 touchdowns from 2016 through 2018. Including a breakout year in 2017, where he caught 63 passes on 114 targets for 941 yards and seven touchdowns. 

He started 15 of the 16 games he played in during the 2017 season, and averaged 58.8 yards receiving per game with 38-year-old Josh McCown as his quarterback. So naturally, it was expected that Anderson would take another step forward when the team drafted Sam Darnold with the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Sam Darnold is back under center 00:01:28

Jets head coach Adam Gase gets his starting quarterback under center once again, but when Sam Darnold does take that first hit on Sunday against the Cowboys, everyone will be holding their breath. 

Darnold is returning from mononucleosis, and it may have been a week earlier if he didnt have an enlarged spleen. It's a side effect of the illness, and could even be fatal if it were to burst upon contact. 

That's why doctors had to be totally sure Darnold's spleen returned to normal size. With him starting this week, the result is it has -- and that's why Darnold isn't nervous if he does take a hit.

Over the next few weeks, the Jets should be getting several starters back from injury or suspension, headlined of course by Sam Darnold. This should provide a much-needed injection of talent for a team that has mostly been over matched in losing each of their first four games.

However, while the team as a whole has been struggling, there have been some positive flashes here and there from young players who have been making the most of their opportunity for additional playing time.

While the returning players should send most of these individuals back to the bench, it would be a shame if their playing time dried up altogether. Let's explore some players who deserve to continue getting chances to contribute even as the team approaches full strength:

Adams was issued a roughing the passer penalty on Baker Mayfield, but said officials that threw the flag apologized to the Jets' coaching staff for making the call after the game.

While the 0-4 Jets are struggling mightily to get things going on offense, their defense faces a very tough challenge in the Cowboys on Sunday. 

Dallas is the NFL's leader in total offense, averaging a whopping 452.8 yards per game with the ability to run and throw the ball at whim. Jets head coach Adam Gase fully realizes what the Cowboys brings to the table, and when asked about it, he couldn't help but to smile while describing the weapons they have to work with. 

"Probably their Pro Bowl offensive line," Gase said on Thursday. "Probably one of the best running backs in football. Explosive wide receiver. Good slot wide receiver. Hall of Fame tight end. Quarterback's pretty good. Outside of that, I mean..."

When Le'Veon Bell heard the news about quarterback Sam Darnold's official return from mononucleosis, the Jets running back reacted accordingly.

Sidelined since Sept. 8's 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills, Darnold's four-week recovery forced New York to go with backup Trevor Siemian and then third-string Luke Falk, who ascended atop the depth chart after Siemian's season-ending ankle injury in Sept. 15's 23-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

While the Jets suffered three straight losses of 16 points or more as they stumbled to their 0-4 start, including consecutive defeats on the road against the New England Patriots (30-14, Sept. 22) and Philadelphia Eagles (31-6, Oct. 6), Darnold's first game back since the season opener gives the offense hope before Sunday's home game with the Dallas Cowboys.

Jets head coach Adam Gase shares the excitement that his players have for QB Sam Darnold finally returning after battling mononucleosis. Of course, Darnold is also excited to get back on the field. 

The excitement won't last long, though, if the Jets can get something going on offense. Since Darnold's been gone, the Jets have barely been able to move the ball. 

So, while spirits are high at One Jets Drive, this group knows there's a lot of work to be done to finally chalk up that first win.
