New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold will not practice on Thursday, while Breshad Perriman takes the next step on a limited basis.

FLORHAM PARK, NJSam Darnold will not practice on Thursday. New York Jets head coach Adam Gase told the media that his young quarterback will take the day to give him an extra day of rest.

Despite Darnold’s absence, Gase remains optimistic about the kid’s chances to take on the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium—the first such meeting in New Jersey since the infamous “Ghost Game” a year ago.

“Right now, I feel pretty good about it,” Gase said about Darnold’s injury. “I think his mindset is that it’ll take for something to not feel right for him to play. We felt that this was a chance to give him one more day of rest.”

Other players who won’t practice Thursday include Jamison Crowder, Blake Cashman, Nathan Shepherd and Quinnen Williams.

Gase also feels good about Crowder’s chance to at least progress with his groin issue this week.

There are a plethora of players that will be limited. Among them is John Franklin-Myers and Breshad Perriman. The wide receiver who’s desperately needed back on the field as an outside threat is taking the next step in the concussion protocol. He will wear a no-contact red jersey Thursday afternoon in Florham Park, NJ.

The 0-8 New York Jets are currently preparing for the also struggling 2-5 New England Patriots for a Monday night tilt with Trevor Lawrence on the minds of all expected onlookers.
