NY Jets QB Sam Darnold practicing, still not cleared for contact — status unclear vs Eagles

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is practicing for the first time since being diagnosed with mononucleosis three weeks ago, although his status for the team's game at Philadelphia remains uncertain.

Coach Adam Gase says Wednesday that Darnold has still not been cleared for contact or lifting weights, but can throw passes and participate in individual and team drills.

Gase says Darnold will have additional tests Friday and the team will lean on the doctors to determine what the quarterback can do physically. The size of the quarterback’s spleen is being monitored. Swelling of the organ is a common symptom of mononucleosis.

Gase says the Jets could go as far as Sunday morning before determining whether Darnold will play against the Eagles or Luke Falk will make his second straight start. Falk will also get snaps during team drills this week.
