New York Post - [Full Article]

As expected, Bryce Petty’s audition as the Jets quarterback ended after Saturday’s 41-3 loss to the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

The Jets revealed Monday Petty suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder during the game when he tried to make a tackle after a fumble by Jets running back Khiry Robinson.

The team announced it had placed the second-year quarterback on injured reserve and added linebacker Corey Lemonier to the roster in his place.

Fantasy Impact: 

Unfortunately for Petty, it doesn’t appear he answered any questions definitively about whether he should be the starter in 2017. As for Sunday’s game against the Bills, Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to start with rookie second-round draft pick Christian Hackenberg likely to be dressed as the backup for the first time in his career.
