Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he will "probably" name a starting quarterback next Monday.
Bowles said on Monday that he wants to first watch film of Saturday's game against the Giants before making an announcement. The Jets will conclude their preseason schedule with a matchup against the Eagles at home on August 31.
Veteran quarterback Josh McCown is expected to be named the starter, but younger quarterbacks Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty have also been the mix. In the team's preseason game against the Detrot Lions, Hackenberg completed two of his six passes while Petty completed 15 of his 24 passes for 160 yards and an interception. McCown did not play in that game.
McCown said on Monday that he would be "obviously disappointed" if Bowles does not name him the starter, according to the Daily News. "But at the same time, we'll support whatever he decides is best for our team."
McCown played for seven different teams before joining the Jets. In five games with the Browns in 2016, McCown threw six touchdowns and six interceptions. Petty threw three touchdowns and seven interceptions in five games for the Jets last season, and Hackenberg -- a rookie last year -- did not play at all in the regular season.
