Jets QB Sam Darnold returns after foot injury

Sunday, December 9, 2018, 5:53pm

Democrat and Chronicle - [Full Article]

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold returned Sunday after missing a month with a foot injury. His return was almost short-lived.

Darnold limped into the locker room with another foot injury after one series against the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field. Darnold didn't attempt a pass and had one carry for 9 yards on New York's first possession. Josh McCown, who had started the last three games in Darnold's absence, replaced the rookie quarterback for a series.

Fantasy Impact:

Darnold was originally ruled as questionable but returned under center at the end of the first quarter. The Jets wouldn't confirm if it was the same foot he injured earlier this season against the Miami Dolphins.

Scouting Report

Week 13 at Tennessee Titans

Josh McCown got his second start of the season, filling in for the injured Sam Darnold. The Jets were playing catch-up so McCown threw 45 passes which produced 276 yards, a touchdown and an interception. New York's offense has struggled overall and there was hope McCown could return to his 2017 play, but that hasn't happened yet.

McCown will face the Titans who are 11th in aFPA to quarterbacks. This won't be an easy game for the Jets so McCown might end up throwing the ball a lot again this week. However, you could see by last week's numbers, that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be a big day for McCown. Keep him on the bench for Week 13.
