The doctors have told him that if there are no complications he should be back in the booth alongside Gary Cohen and Keith Hernandez next month.

“My health is the top priority right now for my family and I,” said Darling. “I’m looking forward to being back in the booth with our crew and my friends Gary and Keith as soon as I can.”

SNY studio analyst and former New York Met Todd Zeile will fill in for Darling during his medical leave.
