Josh McCown    QB  Jets

 

 

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.

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.

Josh McCown (broken left hand) needs surgery, and is officially done for the season. It's a sad end to what had been an uplifting campaign for the 38-year-old signal caller. Speaking Monday, coach Todd Bowles said the two had yet to talk about McCown's future. McCown, whom many thought would retire last offseason, is headed back to free agency. Although he made it 13 games this season, McCown has always had a tough time staying on the field. Admirable though his 2017 campaign was, the Jets also need to be thinking bigger at quarterback.

Coach Todd Bowles announced Josh McCown suffered a broken left (non-throwing) hand in the Week 14 loss to the Broncos. McCown was banged up in this one, injuring his back in the second quarter before then hurting his left hand the next quarter. He'll undergo further tests to determine if he'll need surgery, and we'd imagine he will. McCown was in a cast after the game. The 38-year-old almost made it through the entire season but suffered his yearly injury before doing so. It's so tough for him, as McCown is a legitimate starter in this league but cannot sustain health. Bryce Petty is next man up for a Jets team that has far and away exceeded expectations under McCown's guidance.

McCown suffered a broken left (non-throwing) hand in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com 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, ESPN.com's Rich Cimini reports. Petty completed just two of nine passes for 14 yards in relief of McCown during Sunday's game.

Josh McCown left Sunday's Week 14 game against the Broncos with a left hand injury and will not return. McCown left the game earlier after injuring his back on a second-quarter scramble but only missed one play. He lasted another quarter before absorbing a huge hit from Shane Ray. McCown injured his non-throwing hand on the play and immediately went to the locker room for X-rays. He completed just six-of-12 passes for 46 yards with one interception and a lost fumble before exiting. Bryce Petty will finish out the game at QB.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Josh McCown will start the rest of the season. Bowles has steadfastly said McCown is the quarterback, and that was certainly not going to change with the veteran playing extremely well as of late. Unless McCown gets hurt, it looks like it will be another lost season for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg.

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 quarterbacks once playoffs were out of the question, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg haven't given the organization reason to believe they can be anything more than mediocre backups. McCown's strong play this season wasn't enough to keep the Jets in contention, but it's 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's allowed multiple touchdown passes in five straight games.

Josh McCown completed 26-of-36 passes for 331 yards and one touchdown while adding six carries for 20 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Jets’ Week 13 win over the Chiefs. The 38-year-old was brilliant on Sunday, matching Alex Smith shot for shot in an epic shootout at MetLife Stadium. McCown missed on a few deep balls and sometimes struggled to finish drives but was otherwise dominant, peppering Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse with slants and screen passes out of the slot. He found Matt Forte for an 11-yard touchdown late in the first half and added to his tally with a pair of goal-line sneaks including the game-winner with 2:15 remaining. McCown has been far better than expected this year has now topped 300 yards in back-to-back games. The Jets have already won more games than they did all of last season and will aim for their sixth victory next week when they visit the reeling Broncos in Denver.

McCown completed 26 of 36 passes for 331 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs. He also rushed seven times for 19 yards and two touchdowns. McCown continues to defy both the odds and Father Time, as he actually seems to be getting better the later it gets into the season. The 38-year-old was at it again against a vulnerable Chiefs secondary in Week 13, connecting with starting wideouts Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson for a combined 17 completions and 264 yards. He hit Matt Forte for his one touchdown and also keyed two critical fourth-quarter drives that proved to be the difference in the game. His one-yard touchdown sneak with 2:15 remaining capped the second march, a 14-play, 75-yard series that was aided by multiple red-zone penalties by Kansas City. McCown now has back-to-back 300-yard efforts and has thrown at least one touchdown pass in eight straight contests, while his two rushing scores Sunday give him a career-high five in that category. He'll look to extend his excellent stretch of play against the Broncos in Week 14.
