Darnold out vs. Browns with mono, could miss multiple weeks

This could only happen to the New York Jets

Gase did appear to have optimism that the shoulder situation isn't too serious before Bell went in for the MRI. It's about the most random injury report we've seen around the National Football League in some time.

Beckham unloaded on the new Jets defensive coordinator, who he said coaches his players to make dirty hits, like the one Beckham suffered in the 2017 preseason against the Browns as a member of the Giants. While Adam Gase seems to have a fondness towards Montgomery's game, he is essentially a really poor man's Bell. "All three of us went over there and he knew something was up when Dowell and myself showed up".

After receiving the bad news, Darnold immediately shifted his focus on how to best prepare himself physically for his return. Gase said he learned of the former USC quarterback's diagnosis late Wednesday night and went to the player's home to deliver the news in person. While there are reasons to wonder if the Cleveland job and big personalities in the clubhouse might be beyond HC Freddie Kitchens, a quick recovery from opening debacle seems within reach of Brownies and Baker Mayfield (3 picks in Titan loss). Gase adds Darnold has already lost about 5 pounds. The 27-year-old quarterback played in Denver his first three National Football League seasons, and is 13-11 as a starter. But I'd expect him to be peppered a ton underneath while Siemian is at the helm. In 2016, he had 14 starts with an 8-6 record.

Running back Le'Veon Bell is dealing with a shoulder injury, which Gase said could just be soreness.

"I think we're going to look back and this is going to be a good thing for us".
