  • Jets' Josh McCown: Back to backup duty
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown failed to complete his lone pass attempt in Sunday's 27-23 win over Buffalo. McCown presided over New York's second drive after Sam Darnold limped off to the locker room, but Darnold was able to reclaim his spot under center after that. As long as the rookie quarterback's foot injury doesn't flare up against the Texans in Week 15, McCown should remain relegated to a bench role.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Headed for backup role
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown is slated to serve as the Jets' No. 2 quarterback Sunday against the Bills with Sam Darnold (foot) cleared to reclaim the starting role, a source told Brian Costello of the New York Post. Coach Todd Bowles declined to name a Week 14 starter at the conclusion of Friday's session, but there was never really any doubt it would be anyone other than Darnold after the rookie first-round pick practiced without restrictions this week. With Darnold's sprained right foot now behind him, he'll likely be under center for the final four games in attempt to carry some momentum into 2019, relegating McCown to backup duties. McCown was thoroughly uninspiring during his three-game run as starter, completing 55 percent of his throws for 4.9 yards per attempt and 1:4 TD:INT as the Jets went 0-3. The 39-year-old will become a free agent after the season and seems likely to call it a career.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Cleared for Week 14
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown (back) practiced fully Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bills, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Fellow quarterback Sam Darnold (foot) also practiced fully Friday for the third straight day and avoided an injury designation for the weekend, clearing the way for him to return from a three-game absence. Despite Darnold's lack of limitations and status as the team's franchise signal-caller, coach Todd Bowles wasn't ready to commit to the rookie starting Week 14 when he met with the media Friday, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Instead, Bowles said he would wait until Sunday to make a decision on that front, but it would be a major surprise if the 39-year-old McCown drew another start at a healthy Darnold's expense. Over his three appearances filling in for the first-round pick, McCown threw four interceptions and completed only 55 percent of his passes for 4.9 yards per attempt.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Limited practice
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown (back) was limited at practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. In addition to the back issue, McCown also managed a thumb injury heading last week, but it didn't prevent him from making a third consecutive start in the team's 26-22 loss to the Titans. McCown's availability for Sunday's game against the Bills doesn't look to be in much peril, but he'll likely return to a backup role with rookie first-round pick Sam Darnold (foot) practicing Wednesday in full capacity. The Jets haven't officially named a starter for Week 14, but it would be a major surprise if McCown retained the No. 1 job over Darnold after completing only 55 percent of his throws for 4.9 yards per attempt while tossing four interceptions over the past three contests.

  • McCown completed 17 of 30 passing attempts for 128 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 26-22 loss to Tennessee. He also rushed once for three yards. The Jets made five field goals and scored on a pick-six, but the offense never could find the end zone. It wound up costing them as the Titans took their first lead of the day with just 36 seconds remaining and held on to win it. McCown would throw his interception on the next drive to seal it for the Titans. The 39-year-old has only thrown for more than 135 yards in just one of the three games he has started while Sam Darnold (foot) has been out and has just one touchdown over that time. Fortunately for the Jets, Darnold appeared close to returning this week and should have a good chance to start Week 14 at Buffalo, sending McCown back to the bench.
