New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold finds himself quarantined in a similar area as Josh Allen and Kyle Allen in Southern California. 

No, Sam Darnold has not contracted the novel coronavirus. That’ll be the first question New York Jets fans have when reading Friday’s headlines.

Instead, the New York Jets franchise arm finds himself quarantined in a similar geographical location as bitter AFC East rival Josh Allen and Washington Redskins quarterback Kyle Allen in Southern California, according to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated.

Darnold, 22, missed three games in 2019 thanks to a bout of mono. After a disheartening 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, the Jets were forced to announce Darnold’s terrible luck heading into Week 2.

Mono and coronavirus in the same year would have fans not only jumping off a building, but wondering if this life is literally a simulation created to torture certain pockets of people.


Darnold is hunkered down at his house in Southern California. Everybody knows the guy’s a West Coast kid. The two Allens are spending their alone time in an apartment they rented together after the Super Bowl. Darnold is just minutes away.

The reason for all three to be so close to each other is that they’ve been working out together this offseason, along with trainer Jordan Palmer.

With most facilities completely shut down, there isn’t much No. 14 can do. Although Breer did indicate Darnold has tried to go Rocky 4 (working out on the beach and using unconventional methods), all he can do at the moment is wait it out like the rest of us.
