Petty placed on IR | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Jets QB Bryce Petty has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder and placed on IR. He finishes the season with a 56.4% completion rate, 6.1 yards per attempt and 3 TDs vs. 7 INTs. Petty certainly didn't look like the Jets' long-term answer at QB. Ryan Fitzpatrick figures to be under center for the finale against the Bills.

Jets QB Bryce Petty suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a minor injury -- and Petty is hoping to play in Thursday's preseason finale, per Schefter. His 250-yard, 3-TD performance vs. the G-Men was the best by a Jets QB this preseason, but it's unclear if Petty is in the running for the Week 1 job.

Jets QB Bryce Petty injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder in the 1st half of Sunday's game in New England. He's officially questionable to return. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has entered the game for the Jets.

Jets QB Bryce Petty (chest) put in a full practice on Wednesday and will start Saturday's game against the Patriots, HC Todd Bowles said. Petty has struggled to a 57.7% completion rate, 6.2 yards per attempt and 3 TDs vs. 6 INTs in 5 appearances this season. He's not a Week 16 fantasy option. His availability is good news for WR Robby Anderson and bad news for WR Brandon Marshall.

Jets QB Bryce Petty suffered a chest injury in Saturday night's loss to the Dolphins. X-rays on his ribs came back negative, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, but he's having a CT scan to check for damage to his lungs. We should get an update on Monday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Jets players expect QB Bryce Petty to draw the start against the Rams today. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was limited in practice this week with his knee injury, but it sounds like he's healthy enough to play. So this looks like a changing of the guard in New York. Fitzpatrick hasn't been good this season, but it's tough to imagine Petty being an upgrade in the short term. We moved Brandon Marshall down the Week 10 WR Rankings.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Petty will start.
