When the Jets host the Cardinals this Sunday, Joe Flacco will be the starting quarterback, as Sam Darnold separated his shoulder against the Broncos last week. The news was first reported by Mike Garafolo of NFL Media.

Flacco is best known for his Super Bowl run with the Ravens in 2012-13. However, he has struggled in recent years. In the past two years, the Ravens and Broncos went for a combined 6-11 with Flacco as their starter. The Broncos had also placed Flacco on Injured Reserve after he suffered a herniated disc late last year.

The Jets are 0-4. It is also widely suspected that Adam Gase will be relieved of his duties as head coach sometime soon.
