Jets place Bryce Petty on IR with torn labrum in shoulder

Bryce Petty’s season will end one week early.

The second-year quarterback was placed on injured reserve Monday, the team announced, with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Petty played in six games in 2016, throwing for 809 yards, three touchdowns, and seven interceptions. Petty struggled, but was also playing behind an offensive line which featured a rookie (Brandon Shell) and a pair of first-year starters (Ben Ijalana and Wesley Johnson).

The Jets head into their Week 17 matchup with the Buffalo Bills with two healthy quarterback: Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie Christian Hackenberg. Although it seems likely that Fitzpatrick would get the nod, it will also be the first time Hackenberg dresses in his professional career.
