Darnold Out Again Sunday Against Patriots

Josh McCown Will Make Another Start At QB

November 23, 2018 - 8:51 am


With the Jets season slipping away from them at 3-7, they will have to go up against the Patriots Sunday afternoon without their franchise quarterback, Sam Darnold. 

After missing practice Wednesday and Thursday, Darnold will miss his second straight game with a strained right foot, the Jets announced Friday. Darnold missed the Nov. 11 game that saw the Jets get embarrassed by the Bills and they had a bye last week.

Veteran Josh McCown will get the start in Darnold's place. McCown was just 17 of 34 for 134 yards and two INTs in the start in Week 10 against the Bills.

Darnold has had his share of struggles in his rookie season, throwing for 11 TDs and 14 INTs. A loss to the Patriots Sunday would essentially eliminate them from any chance of making the playoffs.
