The Jets lost quarterback Trevor Siemian in the second quarter of their Monday Night Football matchup against the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium due to injury.
Scrambling to his right, Siemian was hit by Browns pass rusher Myles Garrett and his ankle was caught underneath his body and folded awkwardly. The play occurred on a third-and-16 play and the hit earned Garrett a roughing the passer penalty.
Siemian was 3-for-6 passing with only three yards prior to exiting the game, which he was starting in place of quarterback Sam Darnold, who is currently sidelined while he battles mono.
Here's video of the injury via David J. Chao, also referred to by his Twitter handle "Pro Football Doc." Chao, a former team doctor for the Chargers, also includes his diagnosis of the injury, which he predicts as season-ending:
Despite the tough looking injury, Siemian did walk off the field to the locker room with team trainers. The team later ruled the QB out with an ankle injury.
Second-year quarterback Luke Falk was elevated from the Jets' practice squad earlier this week and replaced Siemian in the lineup.
As the drive continued, Falk was 2-for-2 passing, for a yard.
On the positive side, the Jets latched themselves to the running game as running back Le'Veon Bell had 24 yards on the ground and rusher Ty Montgomery added another 10. That put Gang Green in field goal range and Sam Ficken split the uprights from 46 yards out to bring the score to 13-3.
