Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the former Jets QB Luke Falk has filed an injury grievance through the NFL Players Association against the team less than a month after he was cut.
According to Mehta, Falk will require surgery for a hip injury. Mehta notes that he was listed on the injury report leading up to the team’s game against the Eagles before he was later released.
This is the second Jets’ player to file an injury grievance against the Jets after the situation involving veteran G Kelechi Osemele, who was later released by New York.
Falk, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Titans back in 2018. He wound up being among the Titans’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason last year and was later claimed off of waivers by the Dolphins.
Miami elected to cut Falk loose following this year’s draft and he was later claimed by the Jets before once again being released at the start of the regular season. The Jets re-signed him to their practice squad before eventually promoting him to their active roster to fill in for Sam Darnold.
In 2019, Falk has appeared in three games for the Jets and recorded 47 completions for 73 pass attempts (64.4 percent), 416 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions.
During his four-year college career at Washington State, Falk threw for 14,481 yards while completing 68.3 percent of his passes to go along with 119 touchdowns and 39 interceptions over the course of 42 games.
