Jets head coach Adam Gase indicated on Friday that Sam Darnold is expected to return to the lineup Sunday against the Dolphins.
Sam Darnold will start Sunday unless something happens today.
Head Coach Adam Gase: “It’s been a good week for Sam.”

Darnold has missed four of the last six games with a shoulder injury. He missed the first game of the year against Miami, a shutout loss.
The Jets also released the final injury report of the week on Friday.
This looks like it will be the healthiest group of targets Darnold has had all season. He has yet to play a game with all three starting wide receivers. The offense has looked more credible the last few weeks with Breshad Perriman, Denzel Mims, and Jamison Crowder all in the lineup. With Perriman looking good to go, this should be a barometer for Darnold. If the offense falls short of the modest productivity it had the last few weeks with Joe Flacco and a full deck of receivers, it would be a very negative sign.
