Long injury update for the Knicks: Noah Vonleh (ankle), Frank Ntilikina (groin), Allonzo Trier (calf), Kadeem Allen (illness) and Dennis Smith Jr. (back) are out on Wednesday against Utah. Smith Jr. will be re-evaluated next week. Ntilikina appears likely to return Friday.

The Jets are going light on quarterback insurance this year, a show of faith in Sam Darnold. The one-year contract for new backup Trevor Siemian, who agreed to terms Wednesday, is for only $2 million. A year ago, they went to training camp with Josh McCown ($10M) and Teddy Bridgewater ($6M) before trading Bridgewater. Darnold will miss McCown as a mentor; that can't be overstated. Siemian is a strong-armed passer who has won some games, but he hasn't started many more games than Darnold — 24 to 13. If Siemian fizzles or gets injured in training camp, it wouldn't shock me if McCown returns. Adam Gase's hunch on Siemien had better be right because the Jets can't afford to flush the season if Darnold goes down.

Trevor Siemian is visiting the Jets Wednesday as the team begins its search for a backup QB. It's slim pickings out there: Brock Osweiler (played under Adam Gase), Mike Glennon, Blaine Gabbert, Robert Griffin III ... get the picture? The door isn't shut on a Josh McCown return, but he may take another two months or so to decide his future and he understands the team must proceed with its business. Siemian didn't see any action last season with the Vikings. With the Broncos, he was 13-11 as a starter, with 30 TDs, 24 INTs, a 59-percent completion rate and a 79.9 passer rating. The Vikings reportedly want to re-sign him.
