New York Jets quarterback Trevor Siemian has been ruled out against the Cleveland Browns after injuring his left ankle in the second quarter.
Siemian threw a long incomplete pass to Ryan Griffin, but Cleveland's Myles Garrett slammed into him and fell on top of him — and the Browns defensive end was penalized for roughing the passer.
Siemian, starting in place of the ill Sam Darnold , stayed down for several minutes as trainers attended to him on the field. The quarterback was able to get up under his own power, but very gingerly and with a limp. He was officially ruled out for the rest of the game when the second half began.
Luke Falk , promoted from the practice squad before the game, replaced Siemian and helped lead the Jets to a field goal.
Jets wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was also ruled out with a hamstring injury. He was making his debut for New York after being acquired from New England last week.
Cleveland tight end David Njoku left the game with a concussion after being injured in the first quarter.
