Sam Darnold Cravenly Chooses Life over Football
It looks like the true character of Sam Darnold has been exposed for all of New York to see.
The Jets QB was diagnosed with a nasty case of mononucleosis almost a month ago, which has subsequently kept him out of action.
This unfortunate development left the fortunes of Gang Green in the hands of the woefully inexperienced Luke Falk, something that inspires nothing more than dread and angst.
Many assumed that Darnold would be back by now, but sadly that's not the case.
Unfortunately, it seems that the possibility of his spleen rupturing has got the sophomore signal caller spooked.
That's right, Sam is choosing life:

If his spleen is still enlarged, he can’t play because he could die if he’s hit in that area and it ruptures

Folks, this isn't an unreasonable request.
You people are insane.

That list may not be current, though.
Anyway, it'd be so much better for all concerned if Darnold was just really bored.
Of course, he'd still have to play QB for the Jets.
