No, this female Jets fan did not give Sam Darnold mono
A female fan who brought a poster to the New York Jets’ Monday night game against Cleveland and claimed to have given Sam Darnold mono was just joking, as you would suspect.
The fan was wearing a Darnold jersey and had kissing lip prints on her poster, which said “I gave Darnold mono.”

Is this a woman with whom Darnold has had a previous relationship? The Jets quarterback says no and that he’s “never” seen her before.
Sam Darnold says he saw the sign at MetLife Stadium of the girl claiming she gave him mono.
“I’ve never seen that girl in my life.” #jets

Darnold doesn’t know how he got mono, but the issue will keep him out for a few more weeks. He is not playing due to his enlarged spleen but is targeting a Week 5 return.
