Another Sunday, another day for Sam Darnold to watch his team play while recovering from a shoulder injury.
Darnold and Jets coach Adam Gase insist the quarterback will return later this season, but really, what’s the point? At 0-9 and going nowhere, Darnold runs the risk of not only reinjuring his shoulder but damaging his long-term prospects.
Darnold may or may not be back next season as the Jets face the possibility of a complete overhaul — starting at quarterback.
