With injuries and losing week 1, the New York Jets now have to face the fact that they have to play without their quarterback Sam Darnold — not because of an injury but because the “kissing disease”.
Per Ian Rapoport, Darnold will miss multiple games due to mononucleosis. Head coach Adam Gase said it looks like it will be “more than one week.”
Mononucleosis is a infectious illness some know as the “kissing disease” because you can get the virus through kissing, sharing drinks or utensils. Symptoms of mono are fever, swollen lymph nodes in neck and armpits to skin rash, fatigue and strep throat similarities.
Jets fans are going nuts as they just lost their receiver Quincy Enunwa due to a neck injury but were able to get Patriots’ Demaryius Thomas. Also, LeVeon Bell is having shoulder issues and is due for a MRI.
Back up QB Trevor Siemian will take over for the time being.
The Jets may want to be careful in that locker room as mono is VERY contagious.
This is what fans had to say about Darnold kissing the wrong person on the next page.
