Bryce Petty's 'MetLife Bowl' knee injury revealed as MCL sprain

Ex-Baylor QB and current New York Jets back up, Bryce Petty, suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain Saturday night in a preseason matchup against the Giants.

The quarterback has yet to receive an MRI after suffering a knee injury in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, but the Jets think Petty's ACL is intact, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Mourinho said: "We didn't have many matches last season where we played 90 minutes with the control we had today". Leicester City were also a few defensive lapses away from beating Arsenal on the road to open up the season.

Petty stayed on the turf in pain for a minute or so, walked slowly to the sideline and then went to the ground in pain when he tried to test the knee with some lateral jogging.

Petty still needs to undergo an MRI on Sunday. As a result, he is now hopeful he can immediately suit up for the Jets' Thursday evening matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Petty, third in the depth chart behind Josh McCown and Christian Hackenberg, could be an important player for the Jets given their shaky quarterback situation. He suffered two shoulder injuries last season, the second of which required surgery. He is 32-for-53 for 267 yards (5.1 yards per attempt) with one touchdown, two packs and six sacks.

He needs to step-up if the Bears want to be effective on offense. "But at no point are we going to force it to any one of them". The secondary is where the Titans renovated their roster the most this offseason, letting veteran Jason McCourty go in April.

The injury could have been much worse, especially given Petty's description of the injury after the game. Jets coach Todd Bowles is expected to name a starting quarterback by Monday or Tuesday. There were conflicting reports about Petty's injury, with ESPN's Adam Schefter saying that the quarterback will be ready for the start of the regular season. In the Jets locker room after the game, though, Petty remained optimistic. "What you want to do is just make it as hard as possible".

Coach Hue Jackson's decision puts plenty of trust in a player whose career has been more potential than production. He played two series against the Giants without lighting up the scoreboard once.
