Teddy Bridgewater completed 10-of-15 passes for 127 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jets' second preseason game.

Bridgewater played the entire second half after Sam Darnold handled the first. He struggled to get things going early, but he orchestrated a nice touchdown drive he capped with a great throw early in the fourth quarter. He followed that up with an interception, but he bounced back to lead what at the time appeared to be a game-winning drive. Most importantly, he once again looked healthy even after a defender fell on the back of his legs in the pocket. With Darnold likely to open the season as the starter, the Jets will almost certainly put Bridgewater on the trade block, and he has played well enough to elicit offers.

Sam Darnold completed 8-of-11 passes for 62 yards and an interception in the Jets' second preseason game.

It was a less impressive performance from the rookie than his debut. He struggled a bit with pressure, taking two sacks including a drive-ender in which he held the ball too long, and he was intercepted on a fourth-down play in which he appeared to pre-determine his target and forced the ball into double coverage. He was not helped much by his offensive line, however, and still had a couple nice third-down conversions to Tre McBride. It was a step back, but Darnold still should be the heavy favorite to start Week 1.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta believes "it’d be an upset" if Sam Darnold does not start Week 1.

"Barring deer-in-the-headlights moments over the next couple weeks," Mehta writes. "The brain trust is happier with this kid with each passing day." Coming off an outstanding debut, Darnold received the bulk of the first-team reps this week and is expected to start the second preseason game on Thursday night. Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater are solid options, but the Jets have to start Darnold if he proves ready.

Isaiah Crowell (concussion) will sit out the second preseason game.

Crowell suffered a concussion in the preseason opener. He should be ready well before Week 1, but the missed time is a concern after Bilal Powell started and played the first 10 snaps of the opener. Crowell's status as the lead back is not as secure as it appeared over the summer.

Jets placed OT Ben Ijalana on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Ijalana was projected to be the Jets' swing tackle this season, so this is a hit to the line's depth. To take his place, the Jets signed G/C Gino Gradkowski.

Jets RG Brian Winters (abdomen) isn't expected to play this preseason but anticipates being ready for Week 1.

Winters tore his abdominal and abductor muscles in Week 2 last season but played through it before needing surgery at the end of the year. He's believed to be at or near 100 percent, but the Jets aren't pushing the veteran in meaningless preseason games. Winters signed a multi-year deal in January 2017.

Responding to Terrelle Pryor's claim that his May ankle issue was a new break, Jets coach Todd Bowles said Pryor should "keep his mouth shut and leave the injuries to me."

Pryor has typically had a difficult time endearing himself to his coaches, so it's notable as he tries to secure his 53-man roster spot. "Just" $1 million of Pryor's $3 million base salary is guaranteed. Pryor, who is coming back from what he says was an injury-ruined 2017 in Washington, was inactive for the Jets' preseason opener. He's also expected to sit out Thursday's game against his old team.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports Jets K Cairo Santos is dealing with a "chronic groin injury."

The issue limited him in Chiefs camp last season and ultimately led to him being cut. He is not practicing again in Jets camp this season, but he hopes to be back on the field soon. Taylor Bertolet is handling the kicking duties with Santos out.

Quincy Enunwa (thumb) returned to practice Sunday.

Enunwa missed just over a week after suffering a thumb injury early in camp. Now back, he will compete with Jermaine Kearse and Terrelle Pryor for the No. 2 spot behind Robby Anderson.

Sam Darnold received the "bulk" of the Jets' first-team reps for the second-straight day on Monday.

Signs are pointing toward Darnold starting the Jets' second preseason game on Thursday after his promising showing in Friday's opener. Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater have both drawn praise for their work in camp, but any time you are the No. 3 overall pick, you are on the fast track to starting duties.

Jets OLB Lorenzo Mauldin is week to week with a hamstring injury.

It essentially seals Mauldin's Jets fate, as he was already considered on the outside looking in of the 53-man roster. Perhaps the Jets will waive Mauldin ahead of final cuts in an effort to give him the chance to latch on elsewhere.

Terrelle Pryor said he suffered a broken ankle in May.

It was believed Pryor, who was wearing a walking boot during OTAs, had a cleanup surgery for a previous ankle injury over the offseason, but he apparently suffered a new break. If true, it makes his return to practice earlier this month impressive, but it also suggests he could be limited into the season. Pryor is not expected to play in the second preseason game on Thursday.
Aug 13 - 12:42 PM

Sam Darnold received a majority of reps at camp Sunday.

Darnold's late start to camp seems like a thing of the past following his stellar debut (13-of-18 for 96 yards and one score) in the Jets' preseason opener. He was the third play-caller to take the field Friday, but received more practice reps than either Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater Sunday. His playing time against Washington Thursday could be a nod to where he stands as New York's Week 1 starter.

NFL suspended LB Kevin Pierre-Louis one game for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Pierre-Louis was arrested for misdemeanor possession in January. He joins Rashard Robinson and ArDarius Stewart on the Jets' early-season suspension list. The Jets knew Pierre-Louis was facing a suspension before signing him, so it won't impact his roster status.
Aug 11 - 5:36 PM

Trenton Cannon had 11 carries for 40 yards and caught three passes for five yards in Friday's preseason opener.

He also muffed two punts on special teams. Cannon was the No. 3 back behind Bilal Powell and Isaiah Crowell. The Jets' broadcast said OC Jeremy Bates has early season packages for Cannon with Elijah McGuire sidelined. Cannon likely played his way out of a return job, but he's making a push for a pass-game role.
