The initial reports are indicating it will likely be a high-ankle sprain, pending an MRI.

Given the severity of the images, this would not be the worst outcome and Darnold would be out for 4 to 6 weeks and enter Injury Reserve (IR).

Darnold had already expressed his disappointment and being named QB2 by head coach Matt Rhule earlier this week. After the game, Rhule was asked if he would consider bringing in Cam Newton as a replacement.


Three years after hailing him as a franchise savior, the New York Jets traded Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers on Monday, ending months of intense speculation about their quarterback plans.

In return for Darnold, the No. 3 overall draft pick in 2018, the Jets received three picks: a sixth-rounder in the 2021 draft later this month and a second-rounder and fourth-rounder in 2022.

Without a proven quarterback on the roster, the Jets are expected to select Darnold’s replacement with the No. 2 overall pick in the April 29 draft in Cleveland (on ESPN and the ESPN App). The leading candidate is BYU’s Zach Wilson, who has met virtually multiple times with the Jets’ brass.


 Sam Darnold signed a 4 year, $30,247,715 contract with the New York Jets, including a $20,078,338 signing bonus, $30,247,715 guaranteed.
