Previous Reports (Dec. 26)
The Jets placed Petty on injured reserve after he suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder during Saturday's loss to the Patriots.
The Jets claimed OLB Corey Lemonier off waivers from Detroit to take Petty's spot on the roster.
Petty left early in the second quarter when he "felt something pop" in his non-throwing shoulder while making a tackle following a Khiry Robinson fumble.
Petty did not complete any of his three pass attempts and threw one interception before Ryan Fitzpatrick took over.
"It's tough," Petty told reporters after the game. "Obviously you want to be out there and you want to play. … It's a missed opportunity. Those don't come but few and far between."
Petty made his fourth start and sixth appearance this season, his second with the Jets after they drafted him in the fourth round last year. He completed 75 of 133 passes for 809 yards, three touchdowns and seven interceptions. New York won just one of his starts, a 23-17 overtime victory against the San Francisco 49ers.
New York will finish the season at home against Buffalo with Ryan Fitzpatrick starting at quarterback.
