Jets’ Sam Darnold out with mono, could miss weeks

Sam Darnold Could Be Out'Several Weeks With Mononucleosis

Ahead of their nationally-televised Week 2 showdown against the New York Jets, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. spoke candidly about Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, and how he'll be preparing for "cheap shots" and "dirty hits" from the Jets defense.

Bell performed admirably in his first-ever game as a Jet, compiling 92 scrimmage yards and one receiving touchdown. So while Monday night might now be an absolute must-win scenario, it's about as close as you can come.

But, for now - and probably the next handful of games - it will be Siemian leading New York's offense. The MRI revealed no major damage or tears and was mostly conducted as a precaution.

Bell's ability to affect the game both as a runner and pass-catcher is almost unparalleled in the NFL.

With Sam out, the Jets want to lean on their high priced offensive acquisition Le'Veon Bell. The box might be more stacked without Darnold, but the volume will be there ...

Darnold is now undergoing a litany of tests and has lost a significant amount of weight.

Tesla claims one track record, plans to go for another
Meanwhile, an R&D prototype of the Tesla Model S has been put to work at Laguna Seca, clocking a lap time of 1:36.555. This is one step up from the automaker's Ludicrous mode and is still around a year from production.

Ty Montgomery would be next up to bat in the Jets backfield.

"He wasn't real happy about it", Gase said.

Former Jets folk hero Bilal Powell is also current Jets running back Bilal Powell.

The Jets will go with veteran Trevor Siemian, who started 24 games for the Broncos during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. Besides, Adam Gase's honeymoon is already over at MetLife, with Jets fans wondering if they should have kept Todd Bowles after O scored only 8 in bitter loss vs. Bills.

The Jets also have second-year man Trenton Cannon at their disposal.
