The New York Jets officially placed QB Trevor Siemian on injured reserve with an ankle injury on Wednesday.
Jets HC Adam Gase announced Tuesday that QB Trevor Siemian is out for the season after suffering an ankle injury during the second quarter of Monday’s game against the Browns are taking a big hit from Myles Garrett.
Gase added that Siemian probably will need surgery for a ligament injury in his anke, but the good news is that there are no broken bones involved.
Luke Falk, who was promoted from the practice squad on Monday, will replace Siemian as the Jets’ quarterback while Sam Darnold is out.
You can expect the Jets to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Siemian, 27, is a former seventh-round pick of the Broncos back in 2015. Denver traded him to the Vikings last year for a 2019 fifth-round pick.
Siemian played out the final year of his four-year, $2.33 million contract before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Jets worth $2 million.
In 2017, Siemian threw for 2,285 yards while completing 59 percent of his passes to go along with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 36 quarterback out of 39 qualifying players.
