Quarterback Sam Darnold did not participate Monday when the New York Jets returned to practice following their bye week.
The rookie injured his right foot during the Jets’ Nov. 4 loss against the Miami Dolphins and did not play in the Nov. 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was replaced in the lineup by 39-year-old Josh McCown.
Darnold is reportedly no longer wearing a protective boot, but his status for this Sunday’s home game against the New England Patriots is uncertain.
Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, has a 3-6 record in nine starts. He has completed 55.0 percent of his passes for 1,934 yards with 11 touchdowns and a league-high 14 interceptions.
