While head coach Todd Bowles has not officially named a backup quarterback, Bryce Petty was listed as the Jets' No. 2 behind starter Josh McCown on the unofficial depth chart.
Petty, who suffered an MCL sprain in his knee against the Giants, said he is ready to go if called upon this year.
"[The knee] felt great, felt fantastic - which I knew," Petty told reporters Wednesday. "It was a timing thing. Last week was a little short as far as the recovery process."
Petty, 26, went 75-for-133 with three touchdowns and seven interceptions in six games for the Jets last season. In the preseason this year, Petty completed 32-of-48 passes for 426 yards. He said he doesn't care what role he's listed as on the roster sheet.
"That stuff is just a number by your name," Petty said. "The thing is we all have to be ready to play. …We're all preparing like we're the starter. We're practicing. You just have more mental reps than you do physical reps. We're kind of used to that at that end. But the number, the depth chart, that doesn't affect us. That doesn't affect how we play."
