Sam Darnold ruled out for Jets versus Browns Monday night due to mono

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will not play Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns on Monday night due to mono, head coach Adam Gase announced Thursday.

What It Means:

Gase indicated Darnold could miss multiple weeks with the illness. Trevor Siemian is taking over at quarterback in the meantime, which is an immediate downgrade for a deep threat like Robby Anderson. Le'Veon Bell is sitting out Thursday's practice with a shoulder issue, so the Jets' offense may be in a tough spot on Monday night.

Darnold completed 28-of-41 passes (68.3 percent) for 175 yards (4.3 yards per attempt) and 1 touchdown in the Jets' 17-16 Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He finished with 13.5 FanDuel points.
