Jets quarterback Christian Hackenberg had another tough day at practice Wednesday, throwing two interceptions during team drills. It marked the second straight day that Hackenberg threw two picks during 11-on-11 drills.
The second-year quarterback had not thrown an interception during his first eight practices of training camp. Head coach Todd Bowles is still confident in what Hackenberg can do on the field, regardless of what has happened the last two days.
"It's practice," Bowles told reporters Wednesday. "The defense has got to get turnovers. I'd be concerned if they weren't. They got two today, but we're cleaning some things up, and we're learning as we go. It's going to be up and down every day, so we'll just go from there."
Hackenberg, who did not take a snap during the regular season last year, could get the chance to showcase his stuff on Saturday when the Jets open their preseason slate against the Titans. Bowles said he has not yet committed to a starter for the game.
"Everybody's going to get their fair equal shots to play," Bowles said, "and we're just going with our plan."
