Christian Hackenberg News

Christian Hackenberg    QB  Jets

 

 

Jets head coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that there isn't a scenario "right now" where Hackenberg plays over the team's final three games, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports. With Josh McCown (hand) hitting injured reserve Tuesday, Bryce Petty will take over as the team's starting quarterback Week 15 against the Saints. Like Hackenberg, Petty is a similarly youthful developmental quarterback who has yet to prove his worth at the NFL level, but based on Bowles' comments, it seems as though Petty has demonstrated enough in practices this season to create clear separation from Hackenberg, who will be active for the first time in 2017 as the backup signal caller. Even if an injury to or poor play from Petty were to open up an opportunity over the final three contests, Hackenberg wouldn't warrant a look outside of deep two-quarterback formats.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Christian Hackenberg will not play this season unless Bryce Petty suffers an injury. The aftermath of Josh McCown's season-ending injury would seem like the perfect time to get a second-round sophomore who has yet to play a single snap in the regular season some work, but the coach sees it differently. "We got people at every position that want to play," Bowles said. "We’re not jumping people over people just to play considering anything. Bryce is our starter." With the Saints, Chargers, and Patriots left on the schedule, Petty is going to struggle, opening up the possibility if not likelihood Hackenberg gets a shot over the next three games. Still, not playing him now says everything about his future.

Christian Hackenberg will take over as the Jets' No. 2 quarterback after Josh McCown's year-ending hand injury. The Jets clearly know Hackenberg isn't ready to play, or else they'd be starting the 2016 second-round pick. We'd be skeptical at this point if Hackenberg ever became ready to play. Instead, Gang Green will trot out Bryce Petty for Week 15 at New Orleans. Petty did show a strong connection with Robby Anderson last year, although all Jets pass catchers inevitably take a major hit.

Hackenberg could get a look before the end of the season if Josh McCown can't play with a broken left hand, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports. Ineffective in the preseason, Hackenberg has been a healthy scratch as the No. 3 quarterback all year. Jets head coach Todd Bowles already said Bryce Petty will take over as the starter for Week 15 in New Orleans if McCown can't play through his injury, but that doesn't necessarily mean the team would stick with Petty for the rest of the season. It still seems pretty clear that the Jets don't view Petty or Hackenberg as a potential franchise quarterback. The team figures to acquire a young signal caller in the 2018 draft, while McCown has made a strong case to stick around for another year. Regardless of what happens over the next few weeks, Hackenberg likely will find himself fighting for a roster spot in camp next year.

Jets QBs coach Jeremy Bates was noncommittal when asked if Christian Hackenberg will see the field this season. "As an organization, this is professional football," said Bates. "This isn't Triple-A. We're going to play the best players that give us the opportunity to win at all positions." This comes a day after coach Todd Bowles said he couldn't imagine a scenario where Hackenberg or Bryce Petty would overtake current starter Josh McCown barring injury. These comments further suggest that Hackenberg, a wasted second-round pick in 2016, is not part of the team's current or future plans. The Jets have been better than expected this year at 4-6 but are still likely to draft a quarterback.
