Jets HC Todd Bowles named Josh McCown the team's starting QB on Monday. He really had no choice after Christian Hackenberg puked all over himself this preseason and Bryce Petty injured his knee on Saturday night. McCown went 3-for-4 for 72 yards and a score in his only preseason appearance back in Week 1. He at least gives the Jets a veteran presence but is unlikely to become a fantasy option. There's still a good chance we see Hackenberg and/or Petty during the regular season.

The Jets have signed QB Josh McCown to a 1-year, $6 million deal. He joins Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty in the QB room. Neither of the youngsters seem ready to start, so it might be a 38-year-old McCown under center for the Jets come Week 1. He appeared in 5 games for the Browns last year, completing an ugly 54.5% of his passes with 6 TDs and 6 INTs. McCown had been better over the previous few seasons, but it's quite possible he's simply out of gas at this point.

The Browns have released QB Josh McCown. The 37-year-old appeared in 5 games as part of Cleveland's 2016 QB carousel, completing just 54.5% of his passes with 6 TDs and 6 INTs. McCown reportedly wants to continue his playing career but will only draw interest as a veteran backup. The Browns, meanwhile, are left with QBs Robert Griffin, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan. They'll likely add to that group via free agency and/or the draft.

Browns HC Hue Jackson announced Monday that QB Josh McCown will start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Cody Kessler will be held out after suffering his 2nd concussion of the year yesterday. QB Robert Griffin, meanwhile, isn't ready to return quite yet from his shoulder injury. McCown has struggled in relief duty the past 2 weeks but did toss a pair of TDs in his 2 starts earlier this season. He's on the radar in 2-QB leagues for Week 12.

Browns QB Josh McCown (collarbone) was listed a full participant in Wednesday's practice. "Looks like he's ready to return and start after Week 2 broken collarbone," insider Scott Petrak tweeted. "Humming the ball at practice. Pep in step." Rookie QB Cody Kessler has been better than expected, but McCown still represents an upgrade for Cleveland's passing game. He's even on the spot-start radar for this weekend's plus matchup against the Jets.
