Darnold could miss ´multiple weeks´ with glandular fever

September 12 2019 5:24 PM

New York Jets will be without Sam Darnold for Monday's NFL clash with the Cleveland Browns, as the quarterback is suffering from glandular fever.

Jets coach Adam Gase confirmed Darnold's illness on Thursday, though there is not yet a timeline on his return.

Darnold missed Wednesday's training session, with Gase telling reporters the 22-year-old had been instructed to stay home.

Gase indicated Darnold could miss "multiple weeks", though a return on October 6 to face the Philadelphia Eagles could be possible considering the Jets have a bye in Week 4.

According to reports, Darnold was essentially placed in quarantine to ensure other players do not get sick, with the team opting to send meals to his apartment.

Darnold struggled through the team's Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills as he completed 28 of 41 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown.

Trevor Siemian is expected to start on Monday against the Browns, while Luke Falk will serve as back up.

Siemian, 27, has not seen action since 2017 when he was a member of the Denver Broncos.
