QB Josh McCown Will be Player-Coach SUN

Report Jets Muhammad Wilkerson late due to personal matter with his child

The road continues in Week 15 when the Saints host the New York Jets and third-year pro Bryce Petty at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

NY named Bryce Petty as its starting quarterback earlier this week in the wake of Josh McCown being placed on injured reserve with a broken left hand.

It's entirely possible that some of the kids have simply not looked good enough to earn more opportunities, or in some cases any opportunities, but there does seem to be a disconnect between Maccagnan and Bowles when it comes to the quarterback position as evidenced by the handling of Bryce Petty.

From Brett Hundley to rookie Mitchell Trubisky, the New Orleans Saints have faced inexperienced quarterbacks in 2017. And with such a rejuvenated defense, and the team fighting for playoff positioning, there will be no mercy taken upon Petty and the Jets.

"You have to feel it out in the game and it could be one of those situations where by the time you feel it out, it could be too late".

The Jets aren't officially eliminated from Wild Card contention, but at 5-8, that dream has all but vanished.

Petty sat as a rookie, but made it onto the field previous year when Ryan Fitzpatrick was hurt.

NOTES: Bowles doesn't anticipate Hackenberg playing this season. "I mean, they're just dropping back in coverage and we're just going to be throwing and forcing balls. Bryce is our starter".

"I'm just anxious about the guys going to the game tomorrow and I'll coach those 53 guys", Bowles said.

Hackenberg has taken this snail's pace method with aplomb, never rocking the boat.

"I think I've been ready, I've been prepared", Hackenberg told Connor Hughes of NJ.com on Wednesday. It's just emotional. I'm very, very thankful. I've seen some film on him, but his story is just starting. Every day, come in, come to work. "That's how I approach it". "He did some really nice things".

The Jets did a whole lot of running in the fourth quarter last Sunday for a team that was down 23 points.

Maccagnan isn't anxious about the pace, though, and certainly won't deem the pick a bust. "Mentally, he's a lot different, but you still have to go out and play on Sunday". I think it gives you a little bit of an advantage, but at the same time, we have to go out there and execute.

He may not be, and Hackenberg may not be publicly, but the Jets' faithful are starting to get fidgety for sure - especially with this upcoming draft featuring some promising prospects, and the Jets' quarterback issue still unsolved. Wilkerson's been awful since the Jets agreed to pony up nearly $37 million in guaranteed money for him in July 2016, and he's almost certainly a goner after the season ends.

- Hackenberg has been kept in bubble-wrap for so long, that Sunday's tilt will be just the third time in his career that he's made the gameday active roster.
