EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — First, Sam Darnold. Then, Trevor Siemian.

Well, now what?

That’s the question Adam Gase and the struggling and short-handed New York Jets are faced with at the quarterback spot just two games into the season.

“Obviously, it always causes a problem when a quarterback changes,” running back Le’Veon Bell said after a 23-3 loss to Cleveland on Monday night. “But it wasn’t how the quarterback played. We just didn’t execute enough for us to get a win today.”

Luke Falk, the Jets’ No. 3 quarterback, was promoted a few hours before the game — and found himself on the field as the only healthy player at the position after Siemian went down with an ankle injury in the second quarter.

“Yeah, it’s been a weird week,” Falk said. “A week ago, I was on the practice squad and then tonight I’m standing in front of you guys after playing in a game.”

It certainly was an unexpected development, and sent the Jets into quite a quarterback quandary. New York will likely be in the market to sign another passer or two this week as it prepares to play at New England next Sunday.

Dolphins-Steelers trade

Miami Dolphins defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick got his wish and was traded Monday night to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a first-round draft pick in 2020, two people familiar with the negotiations said.

The people confirmed the deal to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the teams hadn’t announced it. The teams will also swap late-round picks.

Fitzpatrick was displeased about his role with the Dolphins. He requested and received permission to seek a trade before playing free safety for Miami in Sunday’s 43-0 loss to New England, when he had six tackles and a fumble recovery.

The rebuilding Dolphins (0-2), who have purged their roster to accumulate draft picks, now have three first-round choices in 2020. While putting a priority on the future, they’ve been outscored 102-10 in their first two games.

The Steelers (0-2) can use Fitzpatrick’s help. In two games they’ve allowed 640 yards through the air and six touchdown passes. They’re also reeling from the loss of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to an elbow injury.

Unhappy Jaguar

Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey has requested a trade following a sideline argument with Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone.

The Jags are willing to entertain offers. Ramsey’s agent asked the Jags to move the disgruntled defender after Ramsey and Marrone got into a heated exchange during the team’s 13-12 loss at Houston.
