New York Jets quarterback Trevor Siemian's season is over after one game. Siemian suffered a year-ending ankle injury in last night's loss to the Cleveland Browns.

It happened when the fifth-year pro was leveled by Browns' defensive lineman Myles Garrett after releasing a pass in the second quarter. Siemian's body and left ankle were bent at an awkward angle.

He somehow managed to walk off the field but was replaced by Luke Falk and did not return. Originally the Jets' backup, Siemian was only starting in Week 2 because Sam Darnold is out with mononucleosis.

According to head coach Adam Gase, Siemian did not break any bones, but did suffer "ugly" ligament damage that will require surgery.

With Siemian done for the year, Falk becomes the Jets' starter for the time being. It still remains to be seen when Darnold will be able to return.

Expect New York to sign a free agent veteran to back up Falk. The market is pretty thin, but they have no other choice.

Making matters worse, the 0-2 Jets have to play at New England this Sunday. It could get very, very ugly.
