Jets quarterback Bryce Petty left Saturday night’s game against the Giants late in the fourth quarter after injuring his knee and said after the game that the knee didn’t feel stable, which means tests to see how severe the injury is and how long he’ll be out of action.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the initial belief is that Petty avoided an ACL injury, but that he suffered a “considerable” injury to his MCL. A fuller picture of his outlook will come after all tests have been completed, but it’s a good bet that Petty is going to miss a considerable amount of time if the first diagnosis is confirmed.
Petty could go on IR with the possibility of returning later this season. Petty was likely behind McCown and Hackenberg on the depth chart.
