  • Jets' Josh McCown: Undergoes hand surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his fractured left hand, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. The 38-year-old was placed on injured reserve the same day, ending what had been a surprisingly strong season for the well-traveled quarterback. Bryce Petty will start for the Jets in Sunday's game against the Saints and is expected to remain the team's top signal caller the rest of the way. Set to become a free agent this offseason, McCown's age will likely force him to settle for a one-year deal if he opts to keep his career going.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Placed on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Jets placed McCown (hand) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports. Once surgery was ordered up on his broken left hand, McCown was destined to land on IR. Due to his exploits this season, the Jets sit just two games out of a playoff spot at 5-8. That said, McCown's replacement, Bryce Petty, will be hard-pressed to complete such a journey. An upcoming unrestricted free agent, McCown likely earned enough clout with the organization to get another chance to serve as the bridge to a quarterback of the future.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Season over
    By RotoWire Staff

    Head coach Todd Bowles said Monday that McCown will have a season-ending procedure on his left hand, Rich Cimini of reports. McCown's outlook didn't look sunny when he took the podium after Sunday's game at Denver with a cast on the hand. Prior to the injury, he put on a dreadful performance, completing six of 12 passes for 46 yards and one interception while losing a fumble. Overall, though, he had a fair campaign, with a completion percentage of 67.3 percent, 2,926 yards and an 18:9 TD:INT in 13 games. With placement on injured reserve imminent, McCown will be replaced by 2015 fifth-round pick Bryce Petty, who will be backed up by Christian Hackenburg.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Suffers broken left hand
    By RotoWire Staff

    McCown suffered a broken left (non-throwing) hand in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, Rich Cimini of reports. Coming off a huge outing the previous week, McCown completed six of 12 passes for 46 yards -- with an interception and a lost fumble -- prior to being removed late in the third quarter. Jets head coach Todd Bowles said McCown will have further testing to determine if he can play through the injury, with Bryce Petty in line to take over if it's determined that McCown can't go, per Rich Cimini of ESPN>com. Petty completed just two of nine passes for 14 yards in relief of McCown during Sunday's game.

  • Jets' Josh McCown: Locked in as starter
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jets head coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that McCown will be the team's starting quarterback for the rest of the season, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports. While there was some thought the Jets would turn to one of their two younger quarterbacks once reaching the playoffs became unattainable, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg haven't given the organization reason to believe they can be anything much more than mediocre backups. McCown's strong play this season wasn't enough to keep the Jets in contention, but it has at least given them a fair shot to evaluate the rest of their roster, the pass catchers in particular. McCown will travel to Denver in Week 14 to take on a slumping Broncos defense that has allowed multiple touchdown passes in five straight games.
