The Jets announced Tuesday that backup quarterback Trevor Siemian is done for the season with an ankle injury, meaning third-string QB Luke Falk will start against the Patriots in Foxboro on Sunday.
Siemian went down with a nasty looking injury in Monday night’s loss to the Browns. His ankle is not broken but did suffer ligament damage.
Falk will start under center with Sam Darnold battling mono. Darnold has returned to the Jets facility, but does not appear ready to play for the time being.
Gase says Sam Darnold was at the Jets facility today. "He's feeling better... The doctors are letting us know how to proceed with him."— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) September 17, 2019
Falk, like Tom Brady, was the 199th pick in the draft. He went 20-for-25 for 198 yards against the Browns on Monday.
