Trevor Siemian is a free agent at the time of publication, and he will look to sign with a team as a backup quarterback. Keep an eye on where he ends up, but he should not be drafted in any Fantasy leagues.
Siemian has made a full recovery from ankle surgery and is set to become a free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Siemian stepped in as the Jets' starting quarterback when Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis in September, but the veteran lasted just 18 snaps before suffering a season-ending ankle injury that involved ligament damage. Now given a clean bill of health, Siemian will look for a No. 2 job somewhere, with a return to the Jets not out of the question.
The Jets placed Siemian (ankle) on injured reserve Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. Siemian was ruled out for the season Tuesday after an MRI revealed that he sustained ligament damage to his ankle that would make surgery a necessity. By moving Siemian to IR, the Jets will free up a spot on the roster for David Fales, who will back up new starting quarterback Luke Falk in Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Siemian (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Siemian suffered a gruesome looking ankle injury as he was being knocked to the ground by Myles Garrett, forcing him to exit the contest in the first quarter. Look for more updates on his status to come after he receives the MRI. The Jets are currently down to one healthy quarterback, Luke Falk, so expect quarterback tryouts in New York this week regardless of Siemian's condition.
Siemian is officially being evaluated for an ankle injury. Siemian suffered a gruesome-looking injury in the second quarter. Luke Falk will take over as the Jets' starting quarterback with Siemian and Sam Darnold (illness) both out.
Siemian suffered a lower leg injury in Monday's game against the Browns and has been replaced by Luke Falk, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. The injury appears to be significant, as Siemian got his leg caught underneath him while receiving a late hit from Browns defensive end Myles Garrett in the second quarter. He did not have much success through the air filling in for regular starter Sam Darnold (illness), taking two sacks and completing three of six passes for three yards. The Jets now turn to Luke Falk, who was signed off the practice squad hours before Monday's game.
