Luke Falk waived by Jets now that Sam Darnold is back
The New York Jets have Sam Darnold back and decided they didn’t need to keep Luke Falk.
The Jets waived Falk on Saturday and added linebacker Brandon Copeland to their roster, who was activated after a four-game suspension. Falk, who entered the season as the team’s third-string quarterback, was forced into action in Week 2. Darnold has been out with mono and Trevor Siemian got hurt in Week 2, leaving Falk as the only quarterback.
Falk went 47/73 for 416 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions. He looked overmatched when on the field for the Jets.
The New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta reports that the Jets would like to bring Falk back on their practice squad.
David Fales will be the new backup to Darnold in Week 6.
