This will be the first start Darnold will miss in his professional career and comes off the heels of his four interception game against Miami. Darnold appeared to be in a walking boot at Wednesday’s practice and while Darnold has said he is fine, it appears the Jets are protecting their first round investment.
With the Jets bye after the Buffalo game this weekend, it would give Darnold two weeks to heal up before the final stretch of games while at the same time giving him a chance to learn from the sideline.
