The Jets are dealing with a few starters banged up still even after the bye week. This Thanksgiving weekend(I hope all my followers and Jets fans had a great Thanksgiving!) it looks as if the Jets will be without their quarterback Sam Darnold for the second consecutive week. According to Dennis Waszak Jr. Darnold isn’t the only starter expected to miss this game – safety Marcus Maye and left guard James Carpenter are doubtful.
On top of the team not performing well, they have been dealing with a decent amount of injuries since the beginning of the season. It seems like when we get one guy back another guy goes down to offset the return of the original player. As long as the Jets don’t have to deal a season ending injury to any of their key players effecting them for 2019, I’m fine riding this year out however it needs to be.
Josh McCown will step in again this week in place of Sam Darnold, hoping he can put together a better performance then his last outing against Buffalo. At safety Rontez Miles and Terrance Brooks will get the reps to fill in for Maye. At this point with Marcus Maye I’m not playing him until he’s 100%, if that means he’s done for the year then so be it but he’ll be under the spotlight big time heading into 2019. Finally don’t be surprised if Spencer Long slides to LG replacing Carp while Jonotthan Harrison fills in at center. Hopefully these guys can step in and give us a respectable performance.
