Siemian (ankle) has been deemed healthy and is set to become a free agent, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Siemian stepped in as the Jets' starting quarterback when Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis in September, but the veteran lasted just 18 snaps before suffering a season-ending ankle injury that involved ligament damage and required surgery. Now given a clean bill of health, Siemian will look for a No. 2 QB job, perhaps even returning to New York for another year.
Siemian (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Siemian has already been ruled out for the season, so this move was to make room for David Fales on the roster. Going forward, Luke Falk will be starting under center for the Jets and Fales will be the backup until Sam Darnold (illness) gets back to full health. Siemian will be a free agent in March.
Siemian will miss the remainder of the 2019 season with an ankle injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: According to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com, Siemian has a ligament issue with his ankle and will need surgery. The 27-year-old was set to start in place of Sam Darnold, who is missing time with mono. The Jets' only healthy quarterback is currently Luke Falk -- who will start under center until Darnold returns -- so it wouldn't surprise if the team held quarterback tryouts and brought in more passers for insurance.
Siemian (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Siemian suffered a gruesome looking ankle injury as he was being knocked to the ground by Myles Garrett, forcing him to exit the contest in the first quarter. Look for more updates on his status to come after he receives the MRI. The Jets are currently down to one healthy quarterback, Luke Falk, so expect quarterback tryouts in New York this week regardless of Siemian's condition.
Siemian has officially been ruled out of Monday's game with an ankle injury.
Analysis: Siemian appeared to suffer a significant injury after being hit late by Myles Garrett in the first half. Luke Falk will take over for the immediate future with normal starter Sam Darnold (illness) also out.
Siemian is officially being evaluated for an ankle injury.
Analysis: Siemian suffered a gruesome-looking injury in the second quarter. Luke Falk will take over as the Jets' starting quarterback with Siemian and Sam Darnold (illness) both out.
Siemian suffered a lower leg injury in Monday's game against the Browns and has been replaced by Luke Falk, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The injury appears to be significant, as Siemian got his leg caught underneath him while receiving a late hit from Browns defensive end Myles Garrett. He did not have much success through the air filling in for regular starter Sam Darnold (illness), taking two sacks and completing three-of-six passes for 3 yards. The Jets now turn to Luke Falk, who was signed off the practice squad hours before Monday's game.
With Sam Darnold sidelined by a case of mononucleosis, Siemian is slated to start Monday night's game against the Browns, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
Analysis: Beyond Monday's tilt, the Jets are bracing for the possibility that Darnold could miss several weeks. In the meantime, Luke Falk has been promoted to the team's active roster to back up Siemian. Given that the Jets have a Week 4 bye, it's possible that Darnold could be a candidate to return for the Jets' Oct. 6 game against the Eagles. In such a scenario, Siemian would be on track for at least two starts, which puts him on the fantasy radar in two-QB formats, as well as for those scrambling to find a fill-in for Darnold.
Siemian completed 13 of 16 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown while adding 13 yards on two rushing attempts in Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants.
Analysis: Siemian dinked and dunked his way to a modest performance, highlighted by a seven-yard touchdown pass to Elijah McGuire. His case for the backup job was strengthened by a combination of Siemian's competence and an awful performance from third-stringer Davis Webb, who completed two of seven passes for 11 yards and two interceptions.
Siemian isn't guaranteed to start the season as the No.2 quarterback behind Sam Darnold, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Davis Webb showcased himself well in the spring and worked as the Jets' second quarterback for the final set of OTAs. Siemian's experience as a starter -- 24 starts with Denver in 2016 and 2017 -- gives him a sizable edge over Webb, who has yet to make his NFL debut. Siemian joined New York on a one-year, $2 million deal this offseason that includes $1 million guaranteed, further solidifying his roster spot even if he manages to lose out on the backup job.
Siemian has agreed to terms with the Jets, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: The 2015 seventh-rounder gives the Jets a backup with 24 NFL starts (with Denver in 2016 and 2017) under his belt. Per Darryl Slater of The Newark Star-Ledger, Siemian's one-year contract could be worth as much as $3 million, including incentives. With Sam Darnold entrenched as New York's starter, Siemian will only be called on in during garbage time or in the event of an injury.
Siemian will visits with the Jets on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: It was reported Monday that the Vikings were working to re-sign Siemian, but he apparently still wants to check out his options in free agency. The 27-year-old did not see the field as Kirk Cousins' backup in 2018.
The Vikings are working to re-sign Siemian, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports
Analysis: Head coach Mike Zimmer has noted his desire to have a veteran quarterback as the main backup to Kirk Cousins. Last season, Siemian made $1.9 million as the No. 2 quarterback and did not log a snap all season. The Vikings also have Kyle Sloter on the roster, but his inexperience could be reason for concern.
Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer says there's "no question" that Siemian is the backup quarterback, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Siemian had been competing with Kyle Sloter and Peter Pujals for the backup job in training camp, but Zimmer has put to bed any doubts about the status of the competition. Siemian played in 26 games for the Broncos the past three years and he'll be an experienced backup behind starting quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Siemian was just 4-of-8 for three yards passing in Friday's preseason win over Seattle.
Analysis: Siemian has had an up-and-down preseason, but he's locked in as Kirk Cousins' backup.
