The New York Jets quarterback caused a bit of a stir early at practice when he donned a helmet and joined teammates for stretching drills for the first time since injuring his foot. Alas, the rookie quarterback was officially a DNP.
"He's getting better. He's progressing along," Jets coach Todd Bowles said regarding whether Darnold will be ready to go on Sunday. "We'll see how he is by Friday."
The first-round pick has struggled through growing pains in his rookie season, completing just 55 percent of his passes for 214.9 yards per game with 14 interceptions to 11 touchdowns and a 68.3 passer rating, worst in the NFL.
