Opening Statement…

Alright, first off this week (Santonio) Holmes had surgery (on Wednesday) (and Josh) Mauga had surgery (today), so both seem to be doing well.  (Darrelle) Revis now, is going to be scheduled for next week.  If you need more details, on all those things, obviously, Bruce (Speight) will let you know. Now, with that being said, I know I had said before about Darrelle, that I would like to wait for him to have surgery whether we place him on IR or not.  Unfortunately, really with our time situation, we had Eric Smith being out this week, we’re going to need that roster spot. When you looked at it, you can designate guys and all that, when I said if it was a 0.002 percent chance, well it’s not that high. In the best interest of really the organization and Darrelle, we will place Darrelle on IR.  It won’t be a designated for return, so that would be it.  I was kind of holding out hope, but the more information we got, the more you realize that that wouldn’t be good for Darrelle either.  We will place him on injured reserve.

Guys that are doubtful for the game, all these guys, Sione Po’uha, Kenrick Ellis, John Conner, Clyde Gates and Eric Smith.  Po’uha with a low back, Kenrick Ellis, knee, Conner, hamstring, Gates, shoulder, Eric Smith, knee.  So all those guys will be doubtful. Nick Mangold was limited today in practice with an ankle. He will be questionable for the game.  (I’m) definitely hopeful he plays. All these other guys are probable. Every one of them practiced full with the exception of Stephen Hill. He was limited today, but all these guys are listed as probable. That’s Aaron Berry with ribs, (Antonio) Cromartie, shoulder, Nick Bellore, shoulder, (Mark) Sanchez, low back, Calvin Pace, achilles, Brandon Moore, hip, (Matt) Slauson knee, Austin Howard, back, Jeff Cumberland, ribs, LaRon Landry, heel, (Jeremy) Kerley, finger and illness, David Harris, hamstring, Bart Scott, toe, Dustin Keller, Bryan Thomas (and) Stephen Hill all with hamstrings. So all of them are probable.  I thought today’s practice (was) really high spirited. Guys were flying around.  I think we’re loose. I like what we’re doing.  (There are) guys still watching video right now, so we’re trying to eliminate the self-inflicted wounds and then make it a physical contest and we’ll see what happens.  With that, it’s been really a good week of practice.

On if Holmes had surgery…

Yes.

On what type of surgery Holmes had…

Like I said, Bruce will handle all the surgery questions.

On if they were optimistic after Holmes’ surgery…

Oh yeah, everything, both the (surgeries), Josh Mauga’s as well.  We’re anticipating, and assuming really, that these guys will be full-go when we come back in the offseason.

On if he thinks Holmes and Mauga will be ready for the offseason…

I do.

On if Revis being placed on IR will take affect the roster this week…

Yes, it will affect the roster this week.

On whether they have made a roster move yet…

Not yet, but it’ll be either later today or tomorrow that we’ll fill that roster spot.

On if any of the players listed as doubtful on the injury list are possible…

I’d say they’re doubtful, and you know us with doubtful, that really means doubtful. (smiling)

On the challenge of playing an opponent that is playing for something bigger than the game…

I think with us, obviously, Chuck’s (Pagano) a personal friend of mine.  We coached together, he coached my brother for years and years, and I just think the world of him.  But with that said, we have our own things we are playing for, and one of those is, we need a win in the worst way. I certainly understand where they’re coming from and the fact they want to win for their coach. We want to win for each other, we want to win for our fans and that’s going to motivate us.

On whether Hill will make an impact on Sunday…

I think he’ll have a big impact because he has that great vertical speed and he has size and I think he has an advantage in both those areas.

On how much they have missed Hill…

Really, he’s been out, what? (joking) Did he miss two games or one game?  I think he only missed the one game, right? Two games. Yeah, he missed two, I’m sorry, that’s right.  I think it will help.  Anytime you have a big fast guy that is going to take two guys with him (it helps). If not, you can throw it to him one-on-one. I think that might not show up on stats, but I think it could be a factor in the game.

On whether he expects Hill to play a lot…

Yes. I don’t know how much specifically, but I definitely expect him to play.

On the run defense…

I think last week, in that second half, it turned around, as you’re going against similar things. You saw a difference between the second half and the first half against the same kind of running plays. So, I think that, hopefully, will be a good sign for us going forward.

On how tough it was for Dustin Keller to be out.…

It’s probably equally as tough on him as it was me and every one of his teammates. That was tough. You sense his frustration because he clearly wanted to get out there. (He did) whatever was asked of him to get back out there. It just was slow to heal. Here’s one of our best-conditioned athletes and he has this injury. It’s just sometimes guys can heal from things faster. He’s had injuries in the past, just like that (and) he’s right back. But it was frustrating for Dustin. I’m just happy that he’s ready to go. We’ll be smart. I don’t think he’ll play 60 snaps, but he’s going to play a lot. He looks really good out there.

On whether keeping Revis on active the roster hampered what they could do with the roster…

Not at all. That’s where you look at the situation now (and see) we really need the roster spot. When Eric went down for the week, we needed the roster spot. That’s why when you look at it, talking to John Mellody and the trainers, it wouldn’t be in Darrelle’s best interest either. There’s no way he’s going to come back and really be able to play at any time during the season.

On if Revis would have gone on injured reserve if Smith didn’t get hurt…

No, I wouldn’t have made the move. I would have probably waited until surgery.

On if he will make Revis the designated for return player…

No, not after getting all the facts.

On the percentage chance that Revis could return…

My exact quote was with a bunch of zeros and a two, but I think it’s really a bunch of zeros period.

On if the facts were based on any new information that has come to light about Revis’ knee…

No, it’s just because that injury, as everybody probably assumed, would take more time than the season to come back from. My thing was, until we really needed that spot, let’s try to wait for him to get surgery and maybe we’ll see. But the more I really paid attention to the doctors and John Mellody, I think the decision was pretty obvious.

On the whether the 53rd spot on the roster is a big deal…

It is this week because we’re going to need to use that spot for the game. We are going to have to use it. I’m not saying that it’s not a big deal, but we need to activate a guy that is going to play this week. I think that’s where we’re at.

On what position the new player on the roster will play…

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re going to replace a safety.

On the challenges of facing Reggie Wayne…

There are a lot. Reggie (averages) 15 targets (a game). They move him all over. That’s the whole thing. We can match Cro (Antonio Cromartie) on him, but he’s all over the place, so there are going to be times (where someone else covers him). It’s not like we’re going to play man-coverage every snap. We could match him on him, but it’s tough. They get him the football in a lot of different areas. They can get him little bubble screens. They can get him in the curl. They get him in the flat. They get him vertical. They get him all over the place, (also) crossing routes. He runs the whole gamut and they put him in position. Clearly, they want to get him the football.

On Matt Slauson’s fine…

I don’t really want to get into it. My big thing is what I’ve said from day one and I’ll stick with it. That’s that I know the intent of Matt Slauson was never, never to injure Brian Cushing. It’s unfortunate that happened. Cut blocks and things happen all the time in this league and I know we’re a team that very rarely cuts people. It’s an unfortunate part of the game and obviously you don’t wish that on any player. Matt obviously felt terrible about when the young man (was) injured, as we all did. I don’t care who you’re playing, how competitive and all that, the best thing for this league is your great players are healthy and playing. It’s just an unfortunate injury.

On Drew Stanton saying he would get a chance to play with the Jets if Sanchez struggled…

I don’t remember that. I read part of his comments. I felt that we had our quarterback (and) that we weren’t going to draft a quarterback because I felt really good about our quarterback situation. When the Tebow trade possibility came up, (we thought), “Woah,” we thought it was a great opportunity for our football team to add the Wildcat back into our offense and to get a player like Tim in the building. That’s why we pursued it. With Drew, it wasn’t like we said, “Hey, we got you under contract. You’re going to be here regardless.” We never wanted to mess him over. That wasn’t our intent. When we signed him, we felt really good about him being the number two and McElroy being the three. It just happened that this opportunity came up and that’s why we made the move.

On whether he remembers saying that Stanton will play if Sanchez struggles…

No, I don’t remember that.  I just remember that we were happy to have him. We thought that he’d be a good number two quarterback and that’s why we signed him originally.

After Josh McCown's season-ending injury, Bryce Petty has been pushed to center stage for the Jets and will be starting this Sunday in New Orleans. The Saints won't take the Jets' backup lightly, citing a lack of film on the former Baylor quarterback.

Publically, multiple members of the Saints' secondary have been respectful of Petty's ability.

"For me having been in this league for a while, it's actually scarier going against a guy you don't have a lot of film on..."

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Bryce Petty will make his fifth career start for the Jets on Sunday in New Orleans because Josh McCown has a broken left hand and because, as Todd Bowles said, "Bryce is the next man up."

That's a nice, tidy coach-speak way of avoiding the obvious truth about that decision: Starting Petty makes very little sense at this point for the 5-8 Jets. They need to see Christian Hackenberg play...

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Josh McCown may be out for the season and unsigned for 2018, but he's not done helping the Jets young players just yet.

The 38-year-old quarterback was back on the practice field on Thursday, just two days after undergoing surgery on his broken left hand, and he will travel with the Jets to New Orleans this weekend for their game against the Saints on Sunday afternoon. There, according to Jets coach Todd Bowles, McCown will serve as a "player-coach" as quarterback Bryce Petty makes his first start of the year...

Jets LB Demario Davis has been a cornerstone of the team's defense this season, but it wasn't always that way. 

When returning to the Jets this offseason after a season with the Browns, fans and media crushed Davis, saying he wasn't worth bringing back after serving four previous season in Green & White. Davis didn't prove them wrong in the first two weeks of the season either as he struggled mightily on the field. 

Davis spoke with SNY's Jonas Schwartz and Willie Colon on "The Jet Stream Podcast" to talk about how he dealt with the pressure, and turned around his season...

The Jets will select LSU DE Arden Key with the tenth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, predicts ESPN's Todd McShay.

Despite the Jets' need for a steady arm at the quarterback position, McShay points out their edge rushers need some improvement as well. This is why McShay can't see the Jets passing up on who he thinks is the most natural defensive end coming out of college this season...

The Jets worked out two CFL players on Tuesday: WR DaVaris Daniels and CB Garry Peters, reports NY Daily News' Manish Mehta. 

The 6-foot-1, 207 pound Daniels has played his past two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, who made it to the Grey Cup last season. In 13 games last season, the Notre Dame product caught 47 receptions for 743 yards and four touchdowns. 

Peters has played for the Edmonton Eskimos the past two seasons, where he most recently won the Grey Cup. The 5-foot-11, 190 pound cornerback notched 35 tackles and three special teams tackles this past season. 

As the custom with CFL players converting to the NFL, the Jets may be looking at Daniels and Peters for potential futures deals after the season. CFL players generally are not allowed to sign with NFL teams until their contracts expire in February.

McCown suffered the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Broncos. He walked off the field in obvious pain, and underwent X-rays during the game. He received a second opinion on the hand, and it was suggested he should get surgery to repair it. 

"It just sucks," McCown said emotionally after the game.

Any lingering hopes of the Jets remaining in playoff contention were put to rest by a struggling Broncos team that was met with scant resistance in their 23-0 win. This continues a season-long pattern of futility on the road for this Jets team, which drops to 5-8 on the year and now seems destined to end up 5-11 for the season season in a row.

Let's start this week by breaking down the performances on the offensive side of the ball:

GEICO SportsNite: FNNY on Jets 00:03:08
The Football Night in New York crew break down the Jets ugly 23-0 loss to the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.

After Jets quarterback Josh McCown suffered a broken left hand in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, second-string quarterback Bryce Petty said he feels "ready" to step up for New York's Week 15 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

"I am going to give my heart and soul and prepare for this week for New Orleans," Petty said, according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes. "Whatever happens in the future, happens, but all I can do is worry about things I can control. Whether Josh plays, or whether he doesn't, I am going to go in there prepared and ready to lead this team."

Given McCown's injury is on his non-throwing hand, it is unclear if he will play during the team's final three games of the season. Head coach Todd Bowles said McCown will undergo further tests this week to evaluate his status for the rest of the season.

Jets quarterback Josh McCown suffered a broken left hand in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, head coach Todd Bowles told reporters.

"It just sucks," an emotional McCown, who was brought to tears at the podium, said after the game.

McCown left the game late in the third quarter with the Jets trailing 20-0. He previously left the game in the first half after scrambling for a first down, but returned two plays later.

He walked off the field and underwent X-rays during the game. It is unclear if the injury will end McCown's season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. McCown will undergo further tests, Bowles said.

THE GAME

The Jets (5-7) face the Denver Broncos (3-9) at Sports Authority field at Mile high in Denver, on Sunday, Dec. 10, at 4:05 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER:

December in Denver is always a little nicer than I think it's going to be. Temperatures on Sunday should be slightly over 60 with light winds and sunny skies.

WHAT IT MEANS

It means everything to the Jets. They are two games behind the Baltimore Ravens in the race for the last wild-card spot in the AFC with only four games to play, so they can't afford any slip-ups. They also have to hope for some help because just to get to the Ravens, they have to jump over the Chargers, Bills and Raiders, who are all one game ahead of the Jets. It's not going to be easy. It's probably impossible. But the Jets have no shot if they don't win all four of their remaining games.
