Jets’ Sam Darnold avoids right shoulder injury scare after brief exit
The Jets season seemed to go from bad to worse Thursday night when starting quarterback Sam Darnold exited the game near the end of the first quarter favoring his right shoulder. But after a brief stint in the locker room, Darnold returned to the game.
The injury occurred after Darnold was sacked by Broncos linebacker Alexander Johnson. Johnson slammed Darnold to the turf and the third-year quarterback immediately reached for the shoulder. He stayed in for one more play, a run, before leaving the game. He was replaced by Joe Flacco.
FOX announcer Troy Aikman said he suspected it was a broken collarbone.
Darnold had run for a 46-yard touchdown minutes earlier to give the Jets their first lead of the season.
