AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots




Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the same company that previously made specialized pads for Panthers QB Cam Newton used that model to develop padding to help protect Jets QB Sam Darnold‘s spleen.

According to Pelissero, Darnold is expected to use the customized padding to protect his midsection for the remainder of the season.

“Standard shoulder pads really don’t provide that type of protection,” Pelissero said. “Darnold went through multiple fittings. He’s got something that he’s comfortable with as he gets back on the field.”
