Cleveland Browns defensive end Chris Smith plans to play with a heavy heart during Monday night's game against the New York Jets in East Rutherford, N.J. The injury was the result of a late hit from Browns linebacker Myles Garrett. That trusts backup Trevor Siemian under center to try and hand the Jets their first win of the season.
Beckham finished with 161 yards receiving on six catches, including a dazzling one-handed grab along the sidelines to set up a field goal on the opening drive, giving Cleveland a lead it would not relinquish.
With the Jets trailing 13-0 midway through the second quarter, Siemian went back to pass on a third down, and was crushed by Garrett - penalized for roughing the passer - who violently fell on the quarterback and appeared to bend the QB's ankle backward.More news: Tsai blames Beijing for Solomon Islands' decision

With Sam Darnold (illness) out indefinitely, the Jets were forced to turn to the veteran Siemian, who started 24 games as a member of the Denver Broncos. Also active for the first time this season is quarterback Luke Falk, as he was signed to the active roster in place of safety Bennett Jackson earlier in the day. Prior to his departure, Siemian completed 3-of-6 for 3 yards and was sacked twice.
After halftime, ESPN's Lisa Salters reported that head coach Adam Gase had no update on Siemian's status.
