Jets' Darnold limited at practice, hopeful about playing
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold was limited at practice, a positive sign after he had sat out team drills since injuring his right foot more than three weeks ago.
The rookie says Wednesday he was a little sore after practice, but is hopeful he will be able to play Sunday at Tennessee after missing the Jets' past two games.
Darnold strained his foot against Miami on Nov. 4 and hadn't previously thrown passes during quarterback drills during the half-hour window the media are allowed to watch until Wednesday. He says he took some snaps in team periods, and he and the team will continue to assess the injury throughout the week.
Darnold says he had no issues with planting his foot or running.
Josh McCown has started the Jets' past two games, but was also limited as he deals with a sore back and right hand, which he cut during New York's loss to New England last Sunday.
