Bowles: No Decision on Backup QB Yet

Thursday, October 27, 2016 21:02
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Head Coach Todd Bowles left the door open for either Christian Hackenberg (foreground) or Bryce Petty to win the Jets' back-up quarterback job.

The current NY Jets depth chart at QB is 1) Ryan Fitzpatrick and 2) ??? 3) ???. With Ryan Fitzpatrick returning only due to the Geno Smith injury, it is easy to speculate that his time in the # 1 spot will be short lived. At some point the Jets will need to see what they have in their two young QBs Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

The issue right now is who is the # 2 QB behind Fitz. Todd Bowles said the reps for Petty and Hack were about even today. When asked if he made a decision yet he replied, “Closer. It’s not determined yet.”

Injury Notes

Did not practice was Austin Seferian-Jenkins, ankle, Darron Lee, ankle, Brent Qvale, neck, Bruce Carter, quad, Antonio Allen, achilles, Matt Forté, knee, Sheldon Richardson, not injury related, Nick Mangold, ankle, Ryan Clady, shoulder, Buster Skrine, knee. Limited was Bilal Powell, Brandon Marshall, Muhammad Wilkerson, Kellen Davis.

Will Not Play On Sunday

Darron and Brent are definitely out and Bruce Carter is out. Bowles had this to say about Nick Mangold, “It doesn’t look good right now. He’s not running yet. He’s walking. As the days go by and he’s not running yet, it doesn’t look good. But we’ll hold out another day or so.”

Wilkerson and Powell were limited on Thursday, Bowles said he has to see more before he knows if they will play on Sunday.

You can discuss this with other NY Jets fans on the Jet Nation message board. Or visit of on Facebook.
