Former New York Jets quarterback Luke Falk, who was waived in October, has reportedly filed an injury grievance against the team.
The New York Jets reportedly have a second injury grievance filed against them in the last three weeks. Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, former Jets quarterback Luke Falk has a hip injury that requires surgery. The team waived Falk back on Oct. 12.
Falk started two games for the Jets earlier this year. This is due to the fact that Sam Darnold was diagnosed with mononucleosis and Trevor Siemian suffered a season-ending ankle injury. In three games, Falk completed 64.4% of his throws for 416 yards, zero touchdowns, and three picks. The Jets went 0-3 in the games Falk appeared in.
The grievance comes just a few weeks after former Jets offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele filed one after a disagreement over shoulder surgery. The surgery wasn’t authorized by the organization and Osemele was fined for not practicing during the whole process. After undergoing the surgery, the Jets decided to cut Osemele.
According to Mehta, the Jets have yet to comment on the grievance from Falk.
Gang Green is coming off a loss this past Sunday in which they hit a new low. The team fell to the once-winless Miami Dolphins by a score of 26-18. New York now sits firmly in last place in the AFC East division at 1-7.
The Jets will face off against the 2-7 New York Giants this Sunday afternoon. Both teams will kick off at MetLife Stadium at 1 p.m. ET.
