Jets' Siemian lost for season; Darnold 'better'

Luke Falk will make his first career start Sunday vs. the Patriots after the Jets lost backup QB Trevor Siemian to a serious ankle injury. Regular starter Sam Darnold (mono) continues to improve but won't return until Week 5 at the earliest.

Jamal Adams confirmed the obvious ("Yeah, I was benched"), but he danced around questions on whether he's trying to send a message to the Jets by removing them from his social-media bios. He called it "outside noise." Actually, not really because he created the noise. This smacks of a young, highly competitive athlete blowing off steam. He's 9-25 with the Jets. He said he was upset because he wanted to finish the game, but he admitted he made a "boneheaded mistake" (a penalty). Adams said he "strongly" believes the Jets can win. It doesn't sound like he's looking to get out. (Courtesy: WFAN radio).

Stephen A. calls the Jets 'trash' (1:20)

S Jamal Adams has removed the Jets from his social-media bios, fueling speculation on social media that he's disgruntled and wants out. Adams was replaced with 4:22 left in the game after committing offsides and encroachment penalties on back-to-back plays. He didn't return, missing the last five defensive plays. Adams NEVER comes off the field. Maybe that exacerbated his frustration. He spoke to the media after the game, but didn't seem any more than upset than he usually is. Adams is a team captain, arguably the best player on the team. It would be an indictment of the Adam Gase program if he wants out. At this point, though, that's just speculation.

Jets defensive snap counts (based on 59): DL — L. Williams 47, Anderson 42, Phillips 26, McLendon 25, Fatukasi 18, Kaufusi 10; LB — Hewitt 59, Cashman 59, Basham 43, Jenkins 11, Langi 10, Luvu 8; DB — Roberts 59, Maye 59, Hairston 56, Adams 54, Poole 51, Miles 8, Johnson 3, Maulet 1. Analysis: Johnson in the dog house. Adams rarely misses snaps. This list is a reminder the depth on this team is suspect. (Via NFL Next Gen Stats.)

Jets turn to Falk as Siemian (ankle) set for MRI

Jets starting QB Trevor Siemian was replaced by Luke Falk after suffering a left ankle injury midway through the second quarter Monday night. Siemian, spotted in the locker room with crutches and a walking boot, will have an MRI on Tuesday.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Adam Gase tried to dodge questions about DC Gregg (Odell who?) Williams. Gase said he doesn't pay attention to "that stuff," so he couldn't comment. Pressed, he said, "I was told about (Williams' comments), but I don't really care." The head coach doesn't care about one of his coaches providing bulletin-board material to an opponent? Gase: "No, because we have to go do our job — coaches, players."

Jets injury report: QB Trevor Siemian (ankle), LB Jordan Jenkins (calf) and WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring). All three will have MRI exams. Thomas lasted only six plays before his cranky hamstring sent him to the sideline. That might be the last time the Jets make a trade with the Patriots.

Jets CB Trumaine Johnson on his benching: "Of course I'm upset, but it's not about me." He said he practiced on and off with the starters (which should've been a clue), but didn't know about his demotion until game time. Coach Adam Gase refused to shed any light on the decision, except to say it wasn't disciplinary. Gase, channeling Bill Belichick, said, "We just decided not to play him." Johnson played three snaps in garbage time because Nate Hairston went out with leg cramps.

Beckham puts on show in MetLife return, Browns top Jets 23-3

Odell Beckham Jr. had an 89-yard touchdown catch and a spectacular one-handed grab in his return to MetLife Stadium, and Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns did just enough to beat the short-handed and banged-up New York Jets 23-3 on Monday night.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

The Jets' once-promising season has unraveled in eight days. They were putrid against the Browns and lost, 23-3. Worse, they lost No. 2 QB Trevor Siemian (ankle) and had to play third stringer Luke Falk. They lacked urgency and had no semblance of a plan. It was an utter embarrassment.

Le'Veon hurdles defender to get first down (0:26)

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets DC Gregg Williams is eating his words. On Friday, he scoffed when it was suggested that Odell Beckham, Jr. is a "dynamic" player. "Odell, who?" Williams asked. He looks like a fool because Beckham ripped apart his defense with an 89-yard touchdown. The Jets couldn't get close enough to deliver a cheap shot if they wanted to.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

It was a brutal first half for the Jets, who lost QB Trevor Siemian (ankle) and looked utterly hopeless on offense. The game still is within reach, 16-3, only because Browns QB Baker Mayfield wasn't sharp. Don't expect a comeback, though. The Jets haven't sustained anything on offense and Le'Veon Bell (16 touches) can't win it by himself.
