first_imgThree things that matterJets could delay Sam Darnold decision The second-year quarterback practiced Wednesday for the first time since being diagnosed with mononucleosis last month, but the team may not reveal this week’s starter until Sunday. Jets coach Adam Gase was optimistic Darnold could play, but will keep the Eagles guessing for now.”I like our odds better than what they’ve been,” Gase told reporters before practice. “Last week, if we would’ve been playing again, I would’ve said it’s very low. I like the fact that things have looked and progressed in the right direction. But I don’t know what that 5 percent is. There’s some gray still there.” Related News Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski needs season-ending surgery, report says Darnold has yet to be cleared for contact, but that could change as early as Friday after he participated in non-contact drills. In the meantime, backup Luke Falk is staying warm in case he needs to start again.Roquan Smith reappears after mysterious absenceThe star linebacker returned to practice after a mysterious absence kept him off the field Sunday and away from the team early this week, but his status for Sunday’s game in London is less certain even though he told reporters he plans to play.”We’ll see,” Bears coach Matt Nagy said.Smith was a surprise inactive just before Sunday’s win over the Vikings for a “personal issue,” and it was rumored he had not been acting like himself around the team facilities in recent days. It marked the first game he’s missed since being drafted in the first round in 2018, though he appears ready to get back on track after entering Week 4 with 24 tackles this season.Saquon Barkley seen running at practiceThe second-year running back showed off his superhuman skills as he took a significant step in his high ankle sprain recovery by running at practice, giving hope that he could return ahead of schedule.Saquon Barkley (high ankle) back on the field stretching with his teammates and seems to be moving well.

Not my doctors,” Giants coach Pat Shurmur told reporters.Barkley avoided surgery and the injured reserve list, and didn’t appear to have “any sort of limp or limitation” at any point of Wednesday’s training session.Two things that don’t matterStephen Gostkowski needs season-ending surgeryThe Patriots kicker was placed on injured reserve and reportedly is dealing with a hip injury that will sideline him the rest of 2019, though he is expected to be rehabbed by the 2020 season.News of the procedure comes hours after it was reported that New England was looking to work out free agent kickers amid Gostkowski’s struggles. The 35-year-old has missed four extra points and a field goal over the last three weeks, though he has hit 7 of 8 field goals this season.Jalen Ramsey still absent from JaguarsThe disgruntled cornerback hasn’t practiced since the Jaguars’ victory over the Titans on Sept. 19 and remains away from the team for various reasons, from injuries to the birth of his second child. Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone didn’t reveal any new updates.”Talking to Jalen today, basically it’s a day-to-day type thing,” Marrone said.Meanwhile, Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice because of the knee injury he suffered in Sunday’s win over the Broncos.
