Jets running back Le’Veon Bell is undergoing an MRI on his shoulder, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Between this, and other maladies suffered by key players, Gang Green is not off to a rollicking start in 2019.
Bell has been dealing with soreness in his shoulder and doctors fear that it may require more than just a couple days of rest. After the MRI, the team should have a clearer picture of when Bell will be able to suit up again.
Earlier today, the Jets also announced that Sam Darnold will miss Monday night’s game against the Browns after being diagnosed with mono. It’s possible that he could miss even more time than that, depending on how quickly he recovers.
On top of that, the Jets were without linebacker C.J. Mosley (groin) and Quinnen Williams (ankle) in practice on Thursday. Between all of those question marks, and season-ending injuries for wide receiver Quincy Enunwa and linebacker Avery Williamson, the Jets’ season already appears to be in peril.
