James Morgan: No call up coming soon

Coach Adam Gase revealed that Morgan may not make an appearance on the active roster over the remainder of the season, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. "I think we're a ways off from that," Gase said.

Analysis: The offensive-minded coach cited a lack of preseason experience as a key reason for why Morgan is struggling to find playing time. It seems that with Sam Darnold (shoulder) ruled out for New York's Week 11 matchup against the Chargers, Gase and the Jets would prefer to add a quarterback from the practice squad rather than turning to Morgan as a backup to Joe Flacco. The rookie fourth-round draft choice from Florida International has not yet made an appearance for the Jets in 2020.

James Morgan: Will not suit up Week 2

Morgan (coach's decision) is inactive for New York's Week 2 matchup against the 49ers, per the Jets' official Twitter account.

Analysis: The fourth-round draft choice currently resides on the Jets' depth chart as the No. 3 option at quarterback, though he likely will be buried in the No. 4 position once Joe Flacco (neck) is able to return to action. Morgan remains a developmental backup for Gang Green after throwing for 40 touchdowns and over 5,300 yards for Florida International the past two years.
