Trevor Siemian leaves game after suffering left leg injury
Trevor Siemian left Monday night’s game against the Cleveland Browns after appearing to suffer a left leg injury.
The New York Jets backup quarterback tried launching a pass downfield in the second quarter that fell incomplete. He was drilled by Myles Garrett as he released the ball. Siemian’s left leg was planted, and Garrett pushed him backwards against the leg, creating an awkward bend for the quarterback.

Siemian was down in immediate pain but was somehow able to walk off the field despite his foot/ankle being bent unnaturally. He headed into the locker room with a limp and was replaced by Luke Falk.
Siemian was starting the game because starter Sam Darnold is out with mono. Falk entering the game meant the Jets were playing with their third-string QB.
Siemian was just 3/6 for 3 yards prior to leaving the game. A former 7th-round pick by the Broncos, Siemian is in his first season with the Jets after spending last year in Minnesota.
