Darnold to miss Bills game. What it means. Dan Leberfeld

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network announced that Sam Darnold will miss the Jets’ upcoming game with the Buffalo Bills due to a foot injury.

While no injury is good news, this announcement won’t necessarily hurt the Jets on the field.

Some might argue that Josh McCown, who will start in Darnold’s place, gives them a better chance to win.

And they’re certainly in dire need of a win, currently in the midst of a three-game losing streak.

And maybe it’s a good thing for Darnold to watch for a few games from the sideline, get a different perspective, recharge his battery, get his foot healthy, and then reemerge.

After all, he might have been rushed into NFL action. He’s only 21-years-old and came out of college after his red-shirt sophomore year.

Maybe a time-out is a good thing.
