Jets QB Sam Darnold is said to have missed Bill's play with a sprain

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is unlikely to play in Sunday's match against the Bills, which the New York Daily Daily's Manish Mehta calls "significant" foot cramping.

The news confirmed by Rich Cimini of ESPN on Wednesday is a bit surprising. Darnold told reporters in a conference call on Monday that he only suffered "a few bumps and bruises" in the defeat on Sunday against the dolphins, but otherwise "all is well". New York coach Todd Bowles said the same day that he did not know his starting quarterback was injured.

Both Mehta and Cimini said Darnold was seen wearing a running shoe on the right foot on Wednesday in the Jets team facility and did not practice. Mehta adds that the team is not "too optimistic" that Darnold will be healthy against the Patriots in week 12 (the jets said goodbye in week 11).

Darnold comes from the worst game of his rookie season, a four-intercepting trip to the Sunday defeat against the Dolphins. He now has an NFL-high 14-Interceptions this season, seven of them in the last three games.

Veteran Josh McCown, who has not been in a match yet this season, but had done well in 2017 as the team's starter, would race for New York if Darnold is actually injured.
