Jets' Josh McCown: Nearing 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The hand injury that ended McCown's 2017 season is "healing up," and the veteran QB indicated that he is just a "few weeks away" from being 100 percent, NJ.com reports.

The 38-year-old signal caller is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but he's leaning toward playing again in 2018, and if so would prefer to return to the Jets. Per the report, GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles have both said they'd like McCown back next season, and a reunion makes sense, given that the team seems likely to draft its QB-of-the-future in April. In such a scenario, McCown would be an ideal mentor/bridge starter for the team.

Jets' Josh McCown: Could return to Jets for 2018 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCown (hand) could return to the Jets for the 2018 season, NorthJersey.com reports.

McCown's success with the Jets was one of the surprises of the year, as he completed 267 of 397 passes for 2,926 passes and 18 touchdowns before suffering a season-ending broken hand in Week 13 against the Broncos. Backup Bryce Petty, who took over the starting job when McCown went down, is unlikely to return next season, and with the Jets potentially out of range to select a quarterback with their first-round pick in the draft, McCown could return for another stopgap season.

Jets' Josh McCown: Undergoes hand surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 QB of the future.

Jets' Josh McCown: Season over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Todd Bowles said Monday that McCown will have a season-ending procedure on his left hand, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com 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.
