New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold practiced for the first time since spraining his throwing shoulder and could have a chance to play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Darnold was listed as a limited participant Wednesday, which is a positive development for the young quarterback. “Right now, we’re just saying that all options are available,” coach Adam Gase said before practice.
Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills went from a 4-0 start to a two-game skid in a span of seven tough days. Allen and the Bills (4-2) opened the season with a dominant 27-17 victory over the Jets, who have since gotten even worse during an 0-6 start. Buffalo ripped off three more wins before its schedule was adjusted by the NFL, forcing the Bills into a Tuesday night game against Tennessee — which caused the shifts because of a coronavirus outbreak — followed by a Monday night game against Kansas City.
A person with direct knowledge of the deal say the New York Jets have traded outside linebacker Jordan Willis to the San Francisco 49ers. The Jets are also sending a 2021 seventh-round draft pick to the 49ers for a sixth-round selection in 2022, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams hadn't announced the trade. NFL Network first announced the deal Wednesday.
