Quarterback Bryce Petty was having the National Football League game of his life when he collided with his own offensive lineman, Ben Braden, and left with an injury to his left knee. Petty initially tried to jog on the sideline but said the knee felt "unstable".
An MRI is set for some time on Sunday, but expectations are that Petty did indeed suffer a serious knee injury. Petty could play in Thursday night's preseason finale against the Eagles, and should be fully healthy for the season opener.
North Korea Launches Three Short-Range Missiles
Pacific Command issued a statement shortly after the launch, saying that one of the missiles blew up within moments of launch. In July, it launched an intercontinental ballistic missile, which North Korea claims could reach "anywhere in the world".
Petty completed 12-of-15 passes for 226 yards and three touchdowns against the Giants before leaving the game. He suffered two shoulder injuries last season, the second of which required surgery.
With Petty out, NY will need to turn to either McCown or Christian Hackenberg, which won't excite fans in the Big Apple. In six appearances, he threw for 809 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions. In the Jets locker room after the game, though, Petty remained optimistic.
The Jets QB should be good to go come the start of the regular season. McCown has played just one series all preseason, a touchdown drive on the opening possession against the Titans earlier this month. Jets coach Todd Bowles is expected to name a starting quarterback by Monday or Tuesday. He played the first half against the Lions and the Giants with the No. 1 unit. "It felt loose. Which is not something you want to feel as an athlete".
