The team was optimistic last week that Darnold would be able to play at Philadelphia and gave him first-team snaps last Wednesday and Thursday.
"He's done a great job with this team", Jones said. Some, believe it or not, have actually excelled - while others have dragged the Jets down into the AFC East basement once again.
Jets coach Adam Gase said Monday that Darnold would start the game if given medical clearance.
The Jets lost 31-6 and Falk was sacked nine times and had two turnovers returned for touchdowns while NY struggled to get anything going on offense. Herndon hasn't yet been added to the roster; he has an exemption. So Luke Falk - on one day of full reps with the first-team offense - started his second straight game for NY. He was sacked nine times and committed three turnovers, two of which were returned for touchdowns. Falk cleared concussion protocol, the team said, and is available this week. During Darnold's absence the Jets haven't been able to get ANYTHING going on offense.
"He's got them playing hard, and we've just got to correct a few things and we'll be back in line".
